40 weeks and first baby. Swithering between Kiera and Hannah. Surname will be Reid. I'm in Scotland and like the Celtic connection of Kiera but not sure if Hannah flows better?

Don't like the spelling of "Keira" it should always be CIARA 👍 But yes would prefer Keira over Hannah

Exactly, Ok. If you're after a Celtic connection you'd know it wasn't spelt with a K, op. There's no letter K in the Irish alphabet.

Or even worse Ciara is pronounced Sierra (like the car) in parts of the US!

Both gorgeous, but. Kiera just edges it

One of my favourites.

I don't mind Kiera (prefer this spelling over Ciara), but much prefer the Italian Chiara (key-ah-rah).

I think Hannah Reid flows better than Kiera Reid, because the two rs clash a bit in the latter.

Both lovely but I've always thought Hannah a particularly lovely name.

Hannah! ItMseems quite rare these days

mum2be2boys Thu 13-Apr-17 12:32:57

Both nice but I prefer Hannah.

Too many ways to spell Keira/Kiera/Ciara... for me.

lorelairoryemily Thu 13-Apr-17 17:02:23

Ciara not kiera, that's a dreadful spelling, both names are lovely but I prefer ciara

Floggingmolly Thu 13-Apr-17 17:10:11

There are only two ways to spell Ciara, actually, relaxo
The right way, and the wrong way...

lorelairoryemily Thu 13-Apr-17 17:11:49

molly grin that's exactly what I was thinking!!😂😂

123beanie Thu 13-Apr-17 17:15:50

I think Hannah flows much better. smile

The 'ra' sound at the end of Kiera and the 're' at the start of Reid don't seem to flow well to me but maybe that's just me.

AliciaMayEmory Thu 13-Apr-17 17:18:17

I love the name Hannah! Plus it's a palindrome which pleases me immensely! blush

Kiera is a lovely name too and I've seen is spelled Kiera, Kira, Ciara.

You can't go wrong with either. <No help!>

OriginalKateMid Thu 13-Apr-17 18:13:52

Hannah. Classic and gorgeous smile

ChippieFishieHorshie Thu 13-Apr-17 18:22:44

Kiera is nice. But Hannah is simply lovely. I also like pp's suggestion of Chiara.

What about Hannah Kiera R?

AnneWithAnEShirley Thu 13-Apr-17 18:29:36

I just think Knightley when I hear Keira.

I like Hannah Reed

alltouchedout Thu 13-Apr-17 18:33:12

I love Hannah.

Frazzled2207 Thu 13-Apr-17 18:40:34

Prefer Keira to Kiera.

Hannah, it's mine and DH's girls' name of choice.
