This is the English derivative of a Scandinavian name Kåre (pronounced like the word "Core") that traces roots to the Old Norse name Kári meaning "curly, curved".

It is generally a masculine name, but is not always limited to the male gender. The name is also used by women these days outside of Scandinavia.
The "Kaare" variation is pronounced the following way:

"Car"+"Eh"

***Hint - think of a Canadian saying the word Car and adding the stereotypical "eh" to every sentence and you have this pronunciation down.
