I think this is a lovely name but thinking of spelling it as Seeara, not too sure about the spelling though. Because I would like to prounance it as C-ara.Help
I do love the name Sierra, that said - it somewhat bores me. I do prefer it to the alternate spellings, which I think are used to spruce up an already mundane name.
This name reminds me of my neighbour's truck, no offence but it's still a beautiful name!
The name "Sierra" no matter how it is spelt has become a very popular name. When I was growing up there was myself and one other that spelled hers Ciara. I believe it is a very beautiful name compared to my first name which is "Tommie". I love my name as I was named after my grandfather but Tommie for a girl is a little bit of a stretch.
never heard of this name in ireland, female version of Ciaran is Ciara
I've only ever read that Sierra means literally jagged or rough mountain. Thus "Sierra Nevada": literally translates to snowy mountain. I'm not sure why they say it comes from ciaran "dark". It is a spanish word, not celtic. I suppose Ciara may come from that, but not Sierra.
