I love the name Kiera and it is another choice....but I would pronounce it "Kira" (I like the Kiera spelling better). So my question is...if you saw the name on paper--would you be more likely to pronounce it Kira or Key-ara? Just wondering because I really really really dislike the latter....I suppose I could spell it Keira though (and there wouldn't be the whole pronunciation issue)? Wdyt? Thanks :smile:

I'd pronounce that spelling KEY-AIR-UH

Angelica81 February 8th, 2007 06:57 PM

I'd pronounce it like Kira.

Katzchen February 8th, 2007 07:01 PM

Like Kira

~Trina~ February 8th, 2007 07:05 PM

I'd pronounce it like key-air-uh ....

scubagirl80 February 8th, 2007 07:49 PM

Hmmm....given the mixed response....I had better stick with the spelling Kira or Keira so I am not constantly correcting people. Thanks girls!

I've always pronounced it Keer-uh???? IS this wrong? Is this name not a 2 syllable name??? :huh:

I have a Kiera

I used the traditional Gaelic spelling and pronouce it like the male name, Kieran.

It is Keer-ah (like an ear) 2 syllable.

Its sound sweet and good ..., 'Kiera' .

bebe-v-j February 9th, 2007 05:13 AM

I pronounce it Keer-ah.

I would be hesitant on whether to pronounce it key-air-uh or keer-uh. I prefer the spelling Keira.

I pronounce it as Keer-uh. I prefer the traditional Irish spelling Ciara, though.

Smashley February 9th, 2007 10:02 AM

Thats my daughters name. I prenounce it Kear-a

ETA: Kiera is the proper Gaelic spelling. It is the feminine version of Kieran.

I prefer the spelling Kira. It's short, sweet and simple.

No matter if you spell it Keira or Kiera, she's going to get the Kee-air-a thing a lot. My brother's name is Keith and he gets it misspelled Kieth all the time. People just get confused with i's and e's, LOL.

...I think that Ciara looks good....but I know that a lot of people would pronounce it See-ar-uh (which I dislike even more than the pronunciation kee-air-uh)...the spelling Kira is rather cute and simple--maybe I could just go with that...

bluebutterfly February 9th, 2007 06:59 PM

Hmm I pronounce it Keer-uh too.

~Danielle~ February 9th, 2007 07:30 PM

I pronounce it Ke-ar-uh.
