how would you pronounce it?

also worried it doesnt 'go' with DD1's name - Sophie

thoughts?

other suggestions from DH include Payton and Stephanie (because he likes short circuit hmm )

my preferences are Eden (which he vetoed) or Georgia (which we had agreed on but now I am unsure)

help!

It's a pretty name and it has the right spelling.

I'd pronounce it Keer-a.

Pretty name, very popular in Ireland.

I think it would be nice with Sophie, as would Georgia.

I would pronounce it kee ar uh like the italian. I know from reading the thread that I am wrong with this, but most people who meet your dd won't have read the thread!

I think Georgia goes better with Sophie anyway.

Keer-a

Not keen on Georgia.

It's a popular name in Scotland, pronounced Kee-ra

Kee-ds. It's a name I used to love but here in Glasgow it seems like every second little girl is calke Ciara.

Don't know what happened there. Keera obviously.

kee ra ....female to Ciaran (kee ran)

mrsyattering - I once worked with a male Ciara. He was American, but his parents were Irish, so should've known better.

It's an Irish name so pleeeese if you use it, pronounce it properly (Kee-ra).
It's been incredibly popular here in Ireland for the last fifteen years or so but is beginning to go out of fashion now.

I'd pronounce it the same as Keira - it's the original Irish version of the name. I teach in Catholic school and teach lots of little Ciaras, it would never occur to me to pronounce it differently.

Ciara (pronounced the Irish way) is much nicer than all of your other options IMHO!

It's definitely one of those names people would mispronounce. I'd go for Kiera or Cara. I love love love Cara and Clara for that matter and think both go really well with Sophie.
