I think that if you are looking for:
Ke-A-ra then you should spell it Ciara
Keer-a would be Keira.
As a Kira myself, I am certainly biased to this spelling. Short, simple and unfussy. Growing up, I was always complimented on my name.
Wow yes, you are correct, thanks Renrose. My brain got ahead of my fingers there and I apparently left out a whole sentence. And on top of that, thusly spelled her name wrong...
