    lilceeja124 :  I would pronounce it the first way, like car, and as pps pointed out this makes the most sense phonetically…

    However, I think the second pronunciation is a much prettier name! So I would change the spelling to ensure people use the “air” sound and name her Maira. Can’t go wrong with that!

    valintine :  ha! My mild dyslexia would cause me to see ‘maria’ not maira.
