What do you think of the name Kiera? At first glance, how do you pronounce the name?

What would be the best spelling for the pronunciation of KEER-a ?

The name (pronounced KEER-a) is growing on me, but I'm have a feeling it would get pronouced KEE-ar-a, KEE-air-a, etc.


Opinions?!

I have to admit after reading the post title but before reading your post I was pronouncing it KEE-air-a. But I do think I prefer the KEER-a pronunciation.

I like it.

That's what I'm worried about. Probably not the best idea for me to use it then.

I like the name, and Kiera is the correct spelling (so is Ciara, but that would have even more pronunciation problems, especially with that singer who pronounces it see-air-a)

You could also use Kira, which isn't related to Kiera/Ciara, but is pronounced the same way, and probably won't have any pronunciation issues.

I never thought about Kira. I'll have to see what DH thinks.

I like the spelling Keira best. I would pronounce it KEER-a; I never would've thought to pronounce it a different way. I think Ciara would be a more confusing spelling.

I grew up with a Kira.. and my friend just had a baby girl in Feb. and named her Keira.. pronounced Keer-a. I think its a beautiful name, and would consider it as a middle name for my own kids. :)

i really like it. I would pronounce it KEER-a... i like the Kira spelling too which I also pronounce KEER-a (and I know two people who spell it this way and as far as I know they don't have any problems with people pronouncing it wrong)

I would go with the Keira spelling myself just to avoid pronounciation problems. Kira would be good for pronounciation, I just don't like that spelling as well. Otherwise, I think it is a cute name.

I like Kiera (pronounced Kee-air-A).. if I were saying it the way you want, I'd spell it Kira. :)
