Which Spelling? Two Princesses 2 kids; Long Beach, CA, United States 7199 posts

Do you like better?
Kira
Keira
My fiance and I are naming our daughter Kira Elizabeth, but my mom insists "Keira" is the correct spelling and that I'm giving my child one of those "Weird" spelled names.
So I was just curious what you ladies think.

They are both perfectly acceptable spellings.

and you ladies would pronounce Keira Kir-uh?
I've just never seen it spelled like that, so I wasn't sure if she was right or not.

I think it would maybe depend on how you pronounce it. I know a girl named Keira ( KEE-RA) & I know another girl named Kira (KY-RAH).

Me too.
Though it's pronounced Kee-ruh, I've only ever seen it Kira or Kyra which I don't like. Never Keira.
