    Once again, I'd like to point out that my daughter is 4 years old, and she's grown up with key-ar-ah, do not appreciate you telling me my daughter's name is wrong, that's not even what was being asked here. Americans seem to say it as See-ar-ah, going to tell them that they're saying it wrong as well?

    Oh my GOD, can we please start a campaign to make Alan Rickman do this for English names?????

    Just wanted to jump in on this thread. The only (Irish ) Ciara I know is pronounced (Key-ar-rah) and as for the whole Bronwen / Bronwyn thing. Yes, the wyn /wen this is a male/ female distinction, but I am Welsh and have never met a Bronwen, but lots of Bronwyns- none of whom were male. As another poster said, names evolve over time . In earlier times Maria was pronounced Mary-ah
    and if were sticklers for male/female word rules Gwyneth, Gwyneira and the like would in fact be male names.
