I like the name inara for my daughter.
But Wikipedia says that inara is also the name
Of a goddess according to Hittite mythology.
Does that make the name inappropriate for me
Will I be supporting shirk by using the name?
What matters with names is the intention behind it. Therefore Inara the Arabic word is acceptable, while if you use Inara to refer to the Hittite goddess, then it becomes unacceptable.
Think of it this way, if today we find out that there is an ancient goddess in Mexico named Fatima, it doesn’t make Fatima a bad name, unless it is used to refer to the goddess.
