Cirea ?

[name_m]How[/name_m] would you pronounce Cirea? I came across a young lady on Facebook who is naming her second child this. At first, I thought it was some form of [name_u]Sierra[/name_u]. I’m not sure where this came from. The middle name I won’t even attempt, as it is pretty out-there too.

I would pronounce it just like Syria. How to pronounce Syria in English - Definition of Syria in English

I would say it as “sir-EE-uh”. Maybe like Syria? Or “sir-AY-uh”?

Oh, I never would’ve guessed Syria! Maybe that’s it. I don’t know this girl, otherwise I’d ask her. “Sir-AY-uh” is another good possibility. I kind of like that pronunciation.
