So we have a list narrowed down to 2-4 names for each gender for this baby.

Kiera is the traditional Anglicized form.

Hi again.

I think that I may have replied to you about this before, not realizing that your little guy is Brennan Patrick.

If it were me, I'd choose Kira as the most straightforward way of spelling it. If you're not familiar with celtic names, Keira looks like it could be kee-air-ah at first glance and even more so with Kiera. My Swedish neighbor has a daughter named Kyra, but the y looks trendy to me (and maybe some people would mispronounce it as kye-rah rhymes with tie).

I had a friend in college named Ciara but she pronounced is see-air-ah, so there might be confusion there as well.

It's a very pretty name! Maybe your husband would warm up to it if you offered a different spelling than Keira Knightly uses? AS I said, my vote goes to Kira because there are no pronunciation doubts.

Oh, I like Eve for you! Maybe #3 will be born on Martin Luther King Day Eve, Groundhog Day Eve, Valentines Day Eve, or Presidents Day Eve. ;)

That's actually what bugs me about the "Keira" spelling..."I before e except after c and in words like weigh and sleigh."
