Comments for FIERA:

This is a really beautiful name. Plus, the meaning is an added bonus. Not something you hear everyday (probably because it's from Esperanto), but still very pretty to look at and say.

Pronounced fee-AIR-uh.

I was told that "Fiera" in Spanish means "wild one" and is used as an insult to mean the woman is likely to claw your eyes out, uncivilized, etc. I was also told that in Esperanto fiera is an adjective meaning "proud" (from fiero, which means "pride"). It's not feminine and it's not used as a name. The feminine form would be fierina "she-proud" which doesn't make too much sense and since it is used as a name and a noun it should probably be Fiero or Fierino anyway. Esperanto did not originally use names that end in -a. Indo-European speakers could not grasp the idea of a feminine name that ended in -o so Esperantists allowed for the -a ending, but the -o is still more correct.

Author and English professor Richard Lederer wrote in his book "Fractured English" that a truck with this name had been introduced by Ford Motors to the Spanish-speaking market, only to find that it meant "ugly old woman" in Spanish.

This reminds me of fiyero, the Spanish word for fire. I think it's a great name, very strong, and I don't mind the meaning.

Reminds me of the word 'fiery.' I like it.
