Surname is long and begins with an 'S' - I did want 'Kira Isobel Sadie' but worried it would be too much, liked the initials though wink she's due on the 11th so really need definitive 'it's great' or 'it's crap' lol thanks much smile

It's not great. Not at all.

ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight Mon 09-Sep-13 12:03:53

Ah ok thanks. Which one, or both?

Onesleeptillwembley Mon 09-Sep-13 12:08:41

Sadie is marginally better, and it's not a made up spelling.

ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight Mon 09-Sep-13 12:12:09

Hmm I really like Kira and its not a made up spelling, just a variation of Keira ect - I'll have to. Put more thought into it I think. Want unusual, sweet, fairly short. Took me for-ev-er to decide on that, too 'sigh' confused

Kemo Sabe. Sorry.

It's fine. Glad I asked for opinions before settling on it. A fresh perspective and all that

Well you're taking it well, OP. I'm fire when she's born and you see her you'll know. thanks

I don't see anything wrong with the name Kira. It's pretty! And there's been people with this name since at least the early 1900's. I believe it's a Russian variant of the name?

I'm a fan of Sadie.

A bit unsure if Kira. I wouldn't know how to pronounce it, so she would have a problem with that all her life I would imagine.

Kira is a legitimate name OP, Keira on the other hand isn't!

Kira is Russian in origin whereas Keira is just a mangling of the Irish Ciara.

Kira Sadie is lovely, if it's the name you love go for it.

I like Kira. Not so keen on Sadie

Thanks for the encouraging messages.. Love Sadie but it wouldn't go as a first name with the surname hmm and also love Kira though my first name choice was Isobel which everyone liked, but. I thought wasn't unusual enough.Maybe Kira Isobel then smile

Kira Isobel great. Sadie a bit meh.

I like Kira Isobel Sadie. I think Kira is pretty. Reminds me of Lara.

pygmy Mon 09-Sep-13 18:37:46

Kira Isobel is great smile

I think she'd spend all of her life correcting people, having her name spelt wrong, and having to spell it out for people, which isn't something I'd want to put on my dc.

JumpingJackSprat Mon 09-Sep-13 18:43:47

i like kira. dont listen to spelling snobs.

ZolaBuddleia Mon 09-Sep-13 18:44:06

I love Sadie! Kira not so much, and it looks made up, even if it isn't.

I also don't like Kira Isobel because of the two vowels running into each other.

pygmy Mon 09-Sep-13 18:49:05

I disagree with PPs and think that Kira is so obviously a legitimate name. Keira looks less authentic.

BackforGood Mon 09-Sep-13 18:51:39

...but Keira the way it's "usually" spelt, here in England (can't speak for other areas), in this Century. Therefore, to spell it a different way - even if it were a 400 yr old spelling, makes it the odd one out and will not be what people 'assume'.

squoosh Mon 09-Sep-13 19:11:28

I think the pronunciation of Kira is pretty obvious.

'Keira' hurts my eyes.

PixelAteMyFace Mon 09-Sep-13 19:22:57

Not a fan of Sadie, too close to sadist !

Melfish Mon 09-Sep-13 19:32:02

I knew a girl at school called Kira, as she was nice I think the name has good connotations. I always thought that or Kiera was the usual spelling to get it pronounced Ki-ra. Keira just makes me think Kair-a. Not so keen on Sadie though.
