Embracing darkness and finding the beauty it holds, Keira could be the perfect name for a little girl who doesn't shy away from the somber parts of life. This lyrical name is the anglicized spelling of the Irish Ciara. While the original spelling remains the most popular choice on the Emerald Isle, actress Keira Knightley helped bring this spelling to the charts in the UK and US. Her Pirates of the Caribbean performance won her many new fans in the early 2000’s, with many marveling in the dark humor of the franchise. Just like her rule-breaking and free-willed character, the actor has a poised and graceful demeanor, but is always ready to stand her ground. What better influence for a little girl ready to make the world her own?
