Here in Canada we have an entire magazine called "Flare". It's a fashion magazine, so I think the actual intent of the title is "Flair".


Rita, very interesting!

I wonder why the publishers didn't choose "Flair." Perhaps there's another magazine by that name.

Ah . . . My husband just informed me that the Paper Mate company has a pen called "Flair." I suppose they own the trademark.

I knew there was something off about the title...I can't believe you tricked me! Awesome post. Getting the meaning of words correct (especially homonyms) is extremely important for good writing. :)


Of course Lynn, it's also possible to write with Flare:


I wasn't aware of the Flare product. Thanks.
