"I love my name Kiara although most of the time it is mispronounced by my teachers but it?s okay. My friends always thought my name was pretty and unique and i thought it was too. i?m italian so my parents kind of pronounce it key-Ah-da." Jul. 22, 2019:
"Hey, im Kiara and im from Belgium. Most people spelled my name wrong (Kyara, Chiara,..) but its like : Kieaara(that's how you speak it out. Im a HUGE Riverdale fan. And I'm named to the Lion king movie(in that movie plays a lion (child of simba) that have the name Kiara)" Apr. 5, 2019:
"Kiara (Key-R-uh) from 1989. I use to hate my name because people pronounce it incorrectly 98% of the time (Key-air-uh or Ky-air-a). I love it now as an adult because it's so unique and beautiful. My name is after the Swahili meaning "To make a change and or a difference." That, I sure do." Jan. 10, 2018:
"My name is Kiara, and I pronounce it key_air_uh, I?m from ireland" Nov. 19, 2017:
"I pronounce my name as (Key-R-uh) or some may put it as (Key-R-rah). Reading posts about this name is funny because some pronounce it as (Key-AIR-uh) which is the way most adults want to say it in my life but with other people it's the other way around. My mom got the name from "Lion King 2" and I love it. Growing up with this name, you eventually will just reply to either way instead of trying to correct an adult because you compare it with Tiara like a crown and they end up thinking that's your name and quickly saying your actual name to correct them XD. I am a 2003 Kiara." May. 10, 2017:
"My name is Kiara my family and I pronounce it Key-a-rah(in Spanish) ever since I was little I've told people to prounounce it like that and they never did so I had to correct them all the time and I got annoyed of it so one I turned 8 I told people you know what I don't care you can say it how you want since nobody ever says it right but some people(the ones that could speak Spanish)are like the only one that pronounce my name right
But I love my name" Aug. 23, 2016:

"My name is "Keyaire" pronounced key-AIR-uh people call me key-AR-uh or kee-ruh and it's very annoying...my name's very phonetic...I love my name though, when I was younger it wasn't a very popular name (I was born in 1991) now it's like everyone has the same name, or something similar."

"In the past, Kiara was not as common a name as after 2006. But in 2006 it became much more common, due to the fact that in Brother Bear 2, the direct-to-video sequel of Walt Disney Classic Brother Bear, the brown bear protagonist, Kiara, the brown bear cub who is Nita and Kenai's headstrong young daughter and Koda's strong-willed little sister, has that name! In Brother Bear 2, Kenai's daughter's name is pronounced "Kee-AHR-ah." (But when they play together, Koda pronounces his sister's name "KEE-rah" in a loving way, but Kiara does not mind!" Dec. 6, 2008:
"my name is chiara. i'm italian and it is pronounced kya-ra. roll the r. i love my name even though it has been mispronounced my whole life. it is a family name that gets repeated from one generation to the next. it really ticks me off when parents give their baby a name and even they mispronounce it. if you chose a name from a different language make sure you say it right." Sep. 7, 2008:
"My name is Chiara and I love my name! I don't know anyone with the same name, so it's very original. My parents are Italian, but they pronounce my name char-uh. My mom always told me the italian way to pronounce it is key-ar-uh, so I have all my friends call me that now." Mar. 25, 2008:
