The meaning of the name Ciara (pronounced SEE-air-ah) is “Dark” or “Black Haired”. An Irish Gaelic name, being the feminine variant of Ciarán.

Even though it can mean black, this name sounds so bright, bubbly and beautiful. Other gorgeous names that mean black are Chernoa, Ebony and Kali.

Ciara could easily be shortened to Cia, and reminds me of the name Sierra, a seperate Spanish name. It could also blends nicely with Kirra, Ceili and Cyra.
