"Hi, My name is Keara also! I LOVE my name so much! It is the best name ever! My mom teases me and says she is going to change my name....THAT will NEVER happen!

"My daughters name is keara and I don't care how anyone says it its beautiful no matter what way you say it" Nov. 5, 2009:
"My daughter's name is Keara, pronounced Key-are-a. That is how I first hear it pronounced and spelled (first hear it as the name of a wolf). I thought about spelling it Kiara so people would say it right, but my husband wanted this spelling. I think it is a beautiful name but most people mis-pronounce it keer-a or key-air-a. That's annoying. Doesn't help that Keiras sometimes spell it the same and pronounce it different. The original Celtic spelling is Ciara but that would probably get even more botched as sierra or something." Oct. 15, 2009:
"My name is Keara too, pronounced Keir-ah' love it love it love it! cool spelling too although im sure many of you with the same name have people wrongly pronounce it... so annoying lol" Jul. 2, 2009:
"I love unusual names and love names to be sing-song. So when we where looking for names for my daughter we met a read the name tag of a waitress, "Keara". We asked her how she pronounced it. She stated K"air"a. Many people want to say K"ee"air a. I never realized that it was an Irish/Gaelic spelling. I also did not know that there was an Italian name, Cara,... we probably would have chose that spelling over this spelling (her Italian heritage).
A beautiful name regardless." May. 12, 2009:
"my name is keara and i am thirteen. i have never met someone who spelled it like me. everybody mispronounces my name and my little brother always says "come on its not that hard!"
i always think of the word dear when i spell my name like deara, then just add the a K at the beginning. lol i love my name its unique and i dont have to ever worry that someone else in my class will have the name" Apr. 4, 2009:
"I love this name. It is my daughters name. She is 6 currently and LOVES her name. I grew up with less lovely name and hated it from the start. I usually pronounce her name Keer-rah. but when upset will vary from key-ear-rah, to Key-are-rah ( when REALLY upset) lol. she doesn't mind any of the alternate ways of pronouncing it but of course prefers the correct way." Mar. 3, 2009:
"Keara is a lovely and not often heard name. Ironically, my mother, who is from N. Ireland, thought that spelling my name Keara, instead of the original Irish, would prevent it from being mispronounced. Americans always want to say Key-ara. I just tell them to pronounce the "ear" in K"ear"a, easy enough." Feb. 20, 2009:
"My name is Keara and I love it. Ive met other Kearas but never with the same spelling as me so its kinda cool to read peoples comments. Ive heard alot of different meaning for the name like dark haired, a saints name, firey and others that i cant think of. Its gets so anoying though when people pronounce my name like Key-ara which happens very often-lol i think almost everyone of my teachers has originally said my name like that. Anyway im very happy I have the name Keara I love being unique and being the only Keara in my school." Jan. 31, 2009:
"My name is Keara also! I love my name-- I've never met anyone who spells it like me. I have heard that Keara was an Irish saint & was based off of Kearney which means warrior. I also have heard it can mean "hope for the future" Dark is generally the other spelling, but it's pronounced the same so I guess the meanings can intertwine" Dec. 22, 2008:
"Keara is a great name. Because it sounds like keyara. I am the only Keara that I know of in my area. My dad got the name from a list of Irish names a friend gave him. I also like it becasue it is very unique." Dec. 9, 2008:
"my name is keara i love my name because is unique and it sound like a super star name,people always spell my name kiara and thats the reason i like it because they think its, a usual name but its not." Oct. 6, 2008:
"I like it because it's unique and means star in japanese :)" Sep. 17, 2008:

"My is keara in i know alot of keara;s one of my class's had 3 of us in there but all of are names are spelled diffrent must" Aug. 2, 2008:
"My name is Keara, and I love it! It's unique, and even though I've even had a teacher once call me "Korea." I wouldn't trade my name for any other." May. 8, 2008:
"My name is Keara and I always get compliments on it, I love it. There is practically no one with it so it makes it fun to have such a rare name plus the spelling is different from the other various spellings there are." Aug. 22, 2007:
"We named our daughter "Keara" and love the name, it fits her so well. We pronounce it "Key-Era" though we have heard many people pronounce it "Keer-ah" lately. We liked the fact that not many people spell it this way so she would hopefully be unique." Aug. 20, 2007:
"i quite like the names Keara even if every one spells and pronounces it wrong, i think that its a grand names and i am glad my name is keara" Jun. 13, 2007:
"Keara is the name of my daughter. However, I am at my wits end with people pronouncing it wrong. The proper way to spell it is Ciara, which is Irish. When pronounced correctly it should sound like "keer-ra." People spell it Kiera, Keira, Kira, Kyra, etc....and it should all be pronounced like above. However, I get alot of people who pronounce it "Key-erra" or "Key-ara." This drives me crazy, especially when someone elses daughter has the same spelling but says it like that. They have no idea the origin, which means saint in Ireland. It comes from a saint's name. If it is spelled Keira or Kiera it means dark. Keara is the feminine form of Kearnin (not sure if I am spelling that one correctly.) Anyway, thanks for letting me vent. Jamie" Dec. 13, 2005:

"I hate my name, Keara. I pronounce it like Kara but nobody else does and I think that its not supposed to be pronouced as Kara either. DONT NAME YOUR KEARA ITS A SUCKY NAME AND ITS STUPID DONT LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE THAT LIKE IT! THERE ARE MANY MORE PRETTY AND UNIQUE NAMES TO CHOOSE! So yeah when I'm 18 I will change my name to something. (;" Sep. 16, 2009:

"My name is Keara and I am 27 years old!! Growing up NOBODY had the name Keara...or "Kira" however you want to spell it, its the same name. I LOVE my name and really felt unique growing up with this name and still do. I have yet to meet anybody with my spelling and don't know if Id really like if they had it LOL. The only I thing I would say about having my name is it's hard when uneducated people want to call me "Key-arra". There is no such thing as the name "key-arra"..SORRY. Never was. It's just a bunch of idiots prouncing "KEER-AH" wrong. Also, I Really hate it when I introduce myself and there like oh like "Keira Knightly"...I thought I was gonna lose my mind if heard that one more time, especially since Im older then that girl..LOL. I do have to admit that It was weird hearing it so much, especially after she got big. I went from nobody knowing the name, to most people knowing the name so it was weird. Other then that Im proud of the Beautiful Irish name my mother gave me and I thank her for it! She was ahead of her time." May. 30, 2008:
