- I like this pronounced Key-ar-uh. So very Gaelic, and she will definitely not have to go by her last name. I like the middle name Hope with it. Pretty and feminine, but unusual, too.
- (See-AHH-rah) - It's a beautiful name, and it's also exotic.
- Ciara Ann: I'm Irish so I like the fact that Ciara is Irish and I think that it's a very pretty name that you don't hear very often. I would pronounce it KEE-ra. Ann because that is my middle name, my mom's middle name, my grandma's middle name, my great-grandma's middle name....,and the list goes on. I think it's a great middle name, it goes well with Ciara, and I get to carry on the family tradition.
- Ciara Feriby: Ciara is because I love the way it is spelled and it is also a irish name when spelled this way. Feriby (Fair-a-be) is a old family name found in our family genealogy and it is very unique.
- Ciara Mackenzie When I looked at her, I just knew that was her name. I actually came up with Ciara from a perfume that one of my favorite teachers wore. Mackenzie was because she has a lot of irish in her. I thought the name just rolled off of your tongue. Ciara is pronounced the same as sierra.
- Ciara Siobhan
I am constantly changing the middle name that goes with Ciara. I knew a little girl about 8 years ago named Ciara and I haven't met anyone else since. I have seen lots of Sierra's though, which is also pretty. Siobhan is a beautiful name and is one of the few Irish names that is actually simple to pronounce (once I learned it wasn't pronounced See--OH--Ban...hehe)
In Irish Gaelic, Ciara is pronounced /KEE uh ra/, or like Keera. It's a modern form of the name Ciar, which was the name of an early saint. Ciar means "black." In modern American usage, Ciara, pronounced /see-AIR-a/ is one of the many trendy knock-off forms of Sierra/Sienna/Kierra/Siarra etc. Pronounced /see-AHR-a/, It was invented in the 1960s for use as the name of a perfume. The perfume makers roughly based the name on Ceres, the Roman goddess of fertility/harvest.
