What came first: the name Kiara or “The Lion King”? The answer: The name, in its original spelling of Ciara, goes back many centuries. The version that starts with a K became popular in 1988 when R&B duo Kiara made a splash with their debut album; “The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride,” featuring a character with that name, came out 10 years later and further added to the name’s lovability among parents around the globe. Kiara is pretty and lyrical and still feels current.
