    Spellings of Keira?

    I love the name Keira but keep getting the comment that people don't care for the newfangled spelling. I live in Midwestern US where Keira is the only spelling of the name people have heard of and Ciara would be pronounced as see-air-uh. What's your take? What's your favorite spelling of the name and would it bother you having the Keira spelling even though it isn't the original? Thanks for the feedback!

    My favourite is definitely Ciara and as the original spelling I would tend to encourage its use, but I live in Ireland where that's almost always used as the spelling of the name, and never pronounced as Sierra. After that I would go with Keira, but I know Kiara has links to the Lion King, so if that's a turn-on or turn-off you, act accordingly! No matter the spelling, it's a lovely name

    Wait, were you pronouncing it kee-YAR-uh or KEER-uh? I knew someone named Ciara, pronounced kee-YAR-uh, and I thought it was really nice.

    I like Kira best too. The spelling is straight forward and so the pronunciation is more obvious. It is a separate name than Ciara/Keira, so the meaning is different if that matters to you.
