Kearie

Kearie seems to be a variant spelling of Kyrie which comes from the Greek phrase Kyrie eleison meaning “Lord, have mercy”, Kyrie being the vocative form of Kyrios meaning “lord” or “master”. I’ve also seen Kearie listed as a variant of Carey  which comes from an Irish surname, Ó Ciardha, meaning “descendant of Ciardha”, the latter a given name derived from Irish ciar meaning “black” though it may also be derived from Welsh caer meaning “fort, castle”, making it a variant form of Carew meaning “fort on the hill”. Carey may also be derived from Irish car (love) which comes from Proto-Celtic *kareti (to love) via Proto-Indo-European *keh₂- (to desire, wish).

I pronounce Kearie as kee-ree though it may also be pronounced as care-ee.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
