It's actually a recursive acronym: "Scirra Creations Is Really Really Awesome"

i can't find the thread where the ashley answered this question, but I believe it was a portmanteau of sci- meaning knowledge, and cirrus like the cloud type.

scirrus was already taken, so it was changed to scirra
originally pronounced sir-ruh
but since everyone pronounced it skir-ruh, I believe that's the official pronunciation even among the devslucid2011-11-30 18:51:38

The pronunciation aspect was discussed HERE and may include it's derivation, not sure :/
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

I think it's abbreviation of Ashley's statement:
Software Construct Is Real Revolution - Ashley
