Ceara, ...I've looked, but couldn't find anything very helpful ...judging from your name, I'll throw out a guess...

Judging from what I know about Indo-European names in general, and Celtic names specifically, I'll take a wild guess (since no one else has responded!) that the name is a derivative from a common Indo-European word that ultimately means "dark".

The Irish 'Ciara' and the Spanish 'Sierra', at least in my studies are ultimately related. Although the term has come down to mean in the Spanish form "mountain", it's Irish relative is probably closer to its original meaning .…"dark" or rather more appropriately ...'darkness in the distance' ...

Again ...just an educated guess ...
