Or people will be humming ABBA songs behind her back forever more.

Kiara (assuming the pronunciation is Kee-ar-ruh)

Abha is a bit... Well um... ABBA

Is Abha pronounced like Ava?

I like Kiara but prefer the Italian spelling Chiara.

I love Kiara! Beautiful name! I pronounce it like Keira Knightley. Not so keen on the other name but I've no idea how to pronounce it!

Congratulations on your baby!

I prefer Kiara spelled Ciara, but that's neither here nor there.

How is Abha pronounced?

Congratulations flowers

I like both. Very pretty names.

If it's pronounced like Keira Knightly then I prefer Ciara

Ciara is the correct spelling meaning dark haired. Chiara is the Italian version of Claire/Clara

hennyyy Thu 15-Jun-17 22:30:07

Yes but we want the Hindi spelling

SuperBeagle Thu 15-Jun-17 23:20:36

Ciara and Chiara are two different names, as are Kiera and Kiara.

Ciara/Kiera is pronounced KEER-ah.

Chiara/Kiara is pronounced Kee-AH-rah.

2 syllables versus 3 syllables.

That was to the people suggesting Ciara, not to the OP.
