The Italian pronunciation is dzah-EE-rah.
In fact it is also an Italian name, rather fashionable in the second half of the 19th century, not common nowadays. [noted -ed]

Could be related to the word "zayer" which means "visitor" in Arabic.

Zaira is a city in Italo Calvino's 'Invisible Cities', which is found in the section of 'cities and memory'. It is observed that a description of the city as it is 'today' should contain all of its history, which is written in every feature of the city, from the gratings of the windows to the lightning rods.

I'm living with a woman named Zaira right now. And according to an Arabic friend of hers Zaira means rose, and it is also the name of a prophet.

I found out this name is possibly a variant of Zara meaning "Princess" in Arabic and "the brightness of dawn" in Hebrew. It is pronounced zah-EE-rah, or Anglicized ZAIR-ah (rhymes w/ Sara). I personally really like this name and think find it an attractive name for a beautiful young woman.
