The first syllable is like the alphabet "K"? Then it is "ケイラ," (three katakana letters, ke-i-ra).

Or better yet, ケーラ
The ー is the correct way in katakana to elongate the vowel in the preceeding syllable

Mind you, it's *your* name, so you decide on how it's pronounced, and transcribed. There are actually some rules, but they shouldn't be applied too strictly, I feel.
Here's a comprehensive overview if you're interested: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transcription_into_Japanese
