Kiera entered the American popularity list in 1988 and has been slowly been making its way up the list, though lagging behind the alternate spelling Keira, largely due to the fame of actress Keira Knightley.

The original Irish spelling is Ciara, the name of an early saint (who was said to have put out fires by the power of her prayer) which was the most popular name in Ireland a couple of decades ago.

Ranking at Number 204, Keira is the more popular spelling, but Kiera is the more authentic--though both have pretty mush lost their Irish accents.
