Etymology? Gender? Background?
Well, if it's a combination of Ciar or Ciara and something else, then the pronunciation would be kee-ahr-dah. The "c" only ever has a "k" sound in Irish. Traditionally, "k" as a letter does not exist in Irish. Any words with "k" in them would be foreign words, scientific terms, etc.
