Clara Amelia sounds like a name from a fairy tale (quote from doctor who). But in all fairness, it really is a pretty name. I would name my kids that.
You see, I know a Caleb, and I don't really like him all that much, so that would influence my opinion, so I wouldn't say a thing.
I think the real importance in a name is in why you named the person that way. What's the story? If the story is rather romantic and cool or amazing, the name fits well. If not, it's just another name. Your kids will want to know why they got that name, (from a school question) and they would like to tell a long fascinating story in school, you know?
I also think individuality is important as well, and giving it a little something different is a good thing. For instance, Maia instead of maya. Or nic instead of nick. (clarification, not suggesting names... I know too many of these names already) see, it may cause some spelling confusion later in life, but the name will stick in people's minds better.
I come from a heritage which considers names important. I was also able to tell a fascinating story about my name. And lots of people misspell my name at times.
