That's right! Finally a page for every Ciara everywhere!
Not Kyra, Kira, Cara, Sierra, See-ara, or anything anyone else calls us.
We are Ciaras, and we are proud!!
The Ciaras around the world make up some of the finest people anywhere.
I decided to create this page after the guestbooks of my personal homepages began to fill up with comments from Ciaras who thanked me, simply for being me and having the name Ciara!
That's when I knew, the Ciaras were a strong, banded bunch, harrassed continuously by others mispronouncing and misspelling their name on any and every ocassion.
Proud parents of a brand-new Ciara sent me this URL for... The Ciara Song!!!

A Ciara Survey!
The Pronounciation of Ciara:I have received several e-mails asking for the correct way to pronounce our name, and have decided to save everyone the trouble and write it down here. Ciara is pronounced "Kyr-ra", like the name of actress Kyra Sedgewick. If anyone has recording capabilities, and can send me a .wav or any other kind of sound file, I would be more than happy to put a sound recording of it on the page. Please let me know!
The Meaning of Ciara:The name Ciara is generally ancient Celtic. It is taken from the old Gaelic word "kir", meaning black (as in the night). The male version of Ciara is Ciaran, which is the early form of Kevin.
But depending on who you're talking to, it means a variety of things. Here are some of the meanings I've managed to cull from the net and other sources:
"Ciara (KEY-ra): Saint from Kilkeare, Co. Tipperary (AD 670)". Irish Girls' Names.
"Ciara, a 3-syllable name of Irish origin; means: black,dark. Ciara's ethnic background includes *Irish. Ciara is the 57th most popular girl's name. And 100% of people with this name spell it Ciara". Parent Soup.
Note* This is one of the more wrong definitions I've ever seen. Three syllables? 57th most popular? Everyone spells it Ciara? I think not!!!
