Keyeira (Mutoid)
thewayback7
Can any wordsmiths tell me the likely correct spelling for Keyeira? The mutoid from Duel.

It's Keyeira in the scripts, but I've also seen Keera.

It sounds like Key-erra, as in Sierra.

it's kie-Eyre according to Tony Attwood's programme guide.

Do you mean in an actual physical copy/photocopy/photo of the script, or do you mean the transcripts on the internet? If you've seen it printed in a proper, official BBC script I'd go with that.

Otherwise... Attwood had it as Kie-eyre in the original Programme Guide (1984?), though it seems he made up a lot of the spelling himself in that edition. A lot of the spellings are updated* in the second edition (1992?) by some Horizon club members**. Presumably they were able to do this by going back to scripts, which would make the revised spelling - Keera - the correct spelling.

Trevor Hoyle's novelisation of the episode would have been based on a script, but it must've been an early one as the mutoid is only referred to as Android One. (...so presumably the addition of a name and history for the mutoid came from Chris Boucher?)

The credits at the end of the episode list the character as 'Mutoid'.

I've seen it as Kiera, so that's at least three options! Travis does seem to pronounce the name with an 'I' sound, which makes the presumably-official 'Keera' seem a little doubtful.

I therefore feel no one will mind which way you to choose to spell it.



* It's a shame because a number of Attwood's mishearings sound and read better than the real text, though how he got the name of that fungi I'll never know.

** R. Emery and J. Ophir - I wonder what ever happened to them?

It’s Kia-ora, since she’s too orangey for crows.

Don't think it's that. I used to get a drink of Kia-ora with my ice cream tub during the interval at the cinema....usually while watching the Pearl and Dean Adverts Music intro!!!

(Ahh, those were the days 2 shillings and sixpence for a small tub of vanilla ice cream with a wooden spoon).
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Thanks everyone for adding to my confusion! Shock

I'm doing some photoshoppery, hence the question of spelling:

Maybe I'll just leave her name out altogether.

No, I meant the internet scripts, I haven't seen the originals.

Yes, Keera doesn't fit the Travis pronunciation.

I guess you're right that no one will mind. Thanks.

Hmm, that's a bit ambiguous. It could be read as kie-air, so I think I'll pass on Attwood. Thanks.

I guess it's between Keyeira and Kiera. Keyeira seems the clearest so I'll probably go with that.

She could dress in a potato sack and have the same effect.

Hi Thewayback7, this is what I know about names:
Kiera:
Feminine form of Kieran, an Anglicized form of the Celtic - Gaelic Ciarán, which is derived from the Gaelic ciar (black) and the diminutive suffix -an: hence, "little dark one." The name was originally bestowed upon those babies born with dark hair or a dark complexion.
In my mind I take it as Kiera

Have we ruled out Kiora?
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

I like that, Lurena! I'd pronounce it 'Kierra', to rhyme with 'Sierra'

Thanks for the background. I guess it depends on what "correct" spelling means. I wanted a spelling that leaves no ambiguity in pronunciation. That's what I meant by correct.

If Kieran is pronounced Keer-an then Kiera would usually be pronounced Keer-a, I presume, hence Travisina's point about needing to interpret Kiera the right way.

I'll toss a coin...

Apparently Kierra is a real name:

https://en.wikipe...iki/Kierra

Kierra (kee-er-rah) is a female given name. The name may be a variant of the Irish name Kiara meaning "dark" or a variant of the Greek name Kira meaning "lord". US usage of the name reached a peak in 1995

It sounds like a variant of Kiera that Lurena mentioned.
I'm liking it. There's not much room for ambiguity in pronunciation.

It's not as futuristic looking as Keyeira, but Kierra is clear, so I'll probably run with that.

Looking for a possible more exotic spelling I also found this:
Kiyara

Listen to the third pronunciation on this site.
That sounds like Stephen/Travis pronounced the mutoid's name.
