This is such a feminine and sophisticated name, but if you used the pronunciation SEER-a the people may think it is spelt Seera or Sira so i would use SI-Rah for an easier understanding

When my sister was younger, she couldn't say our cousin's name, Sierra. So she called her Cyra. Sierra's little sister called her Sarah. No one could say her name but me!

I prefer Lyra, but I do think this is really pretty and unusual! SYE-rah or SEE-rah are both lovely. You could use Cy for a tomboyish nickname for the former.
