We're thinking Keira. I just wanted to get an idea how this name is perceived as we aren't telling anyone IRL until she arrives smile thank you.

I really like it, it's pretty.

Yes, lovely name

JujuMonster Sun 26-Feb-17 20:13:41


I'd never have though of it but it's great! Short, sweet, easy to spell, actual real life name.

Good work OP!

I don't like it. But I don't detest it either. I think it's a bit dated already.

I like it

Rockaby Sun 26-Feb-17 20:23:42

I like it smile.

I like it a lot more than a lot of names that are posted on here smile

She'll get odd spellings throughout her life, but it is easy to pronounce when you look at it - it known to most people without being overused at the moment. I like it for those reasons.

I really like it - it was on our shortlist for girls (but I had boys)

leccybill Sun 26-Feb-17 21:04:06

I like it spelled Ciara.
Not keen on 'K' names.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 26-Feb-17 21:05:00

Very nice OP

AllTheLight Sun 26-Feb-17 21:05:10

I like it too smile

I like it but it gained popularity round here a while ago due to Keira Knightly so there's at least one in every school year at our school, it's very Isabella/Olivia/Grace/Evie in popularity.

Elbi Sun 26-Feb-17 21:23:05

It's lovely but I always get caught out on whether it should be Kiera or Keira. I know Keira Knightley is ei but did I read somewhere that that was actually a mistake by her parents on the bc?

Found the article:

MACaddict5 Sun 26-Feb-17 21:34:12

I too read that article Elbi

Keira is the far more common spelling of the name (and was before Keira Knightly became popular). It was a spelling mistake in the sense that her mum spelt it differently to the person her father wanted her named after. Not really a spelling mistake though since they are both correct spellings of the name.

MACaddict5 Sun 26-Feb-17 21:35:42

So pleased with the positive feedback. Thank you all for the honest replies. I know a name will never please everyone but nice to know that so many people like it smile

BikeRunSki Sun 26-Feb-17 21:38:56

I really like it. I know a Kiera and a Ciara, both 11, both lovely.

MyDogEatsBalloons Sun 26-Feb-17 22:19:34

It's a very pretty name. I definitely prefer the K spelling, as I'm always unsure if the C is an S sound.

Catherinebee85 Sun 26-Feb-17 22:21:14

It's one of our possibles. grin

Singingforsanity Sun 26-Feb-17 22:30:20

It's lovely, I'd probably go for the Ciara spelling but I'm Scottish. Both are lovely.

Sophronia Sun 26-Feb-17 22:35:51

It's a bit 90s/00s, but nice enough. I do prefer the Ciara spelling though.

PennyPickle Sun 26-Feb-17 23:44:06

I used to like it and it was one of the choices we had for dd1 - 15 years ago. I'm glad we didn't choose it now as there are 5 Kiera/Ciara's in dd's registration class.
