Possibly none of these? I would say "seer" (rhymes with ear) "eez" (like the first syllable of easy)
So I guess kind of like the word 'series'

Probably to rhyme with Paris. Sair-ryss. Tough one. I probably wouldn't use it because one will know how to pronounce it. Sarah (or Cerah spelling), Carys (Karys) Celine or Cerina (Serena) are probably better options

Is this supposed to be another spelling for Cerise? The French word for Cherry? Sé-Reeze/Say-Reeze? Not a fan, sorry. Ceres & Cerise are both a little too out there for me.

I like Ceres, but but not with Claire. What about something like Ceres Gail or Ceres Diana?

SEER-eez, both syllables long E sound. I voted Seer-yss as that seemed closest to how I say it.

If this name is after the Goddess of agriculture and fertility, then the correct pronunciation is Sair-eez
