  • "My name is Kyra, pronounced like Kyrah! Similar to Tyra. Nobody pronounces Tyra like Teera. So Kyra should be pronounced properly. If you want to call your child Kyra use this spelling. However, if you want to call your daughter Keera, then spell it the other way. Kyra is a much nicer pronounciation!! My middle name is Jane, and i think this goes together very well (Kyra Jane). Also, I hate when people pronounce my name wrong, but that is something I have got used to over the years." Mar. 14, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my daughter, Kyra (Kee-ra) the Greek way. I, like others on this site, did much research to determine which way I wanted to spell her name. Origin and meaning was very important to me. My last name is of greek origin and there is a Greek Isle called Kyra. I realize that people can choose to pronounce things as they wish but, when people are ignorant and tell me I am wrong I get really fired up! A woman at the pediatrician's office who named her daughter Keira had the nerve to get snippy with me and said that is not pronounced Kee-ra it is K-eye-ra! I gave her the back story and said politely (unlike her snippy reaction to me) that it was of Greek origin and was definitely pronounced Kee-ra. She seemed very irritated and said "no it's not"! I said OK, you have your opinion, but you might want to look it up. Have a nice day. How rude and ignorant!" Mar. 9, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Kyra. We put a lot of thought into how to spell it because we wanted it pronounced the correct way. Everything I researched, including baby books, websites, etc. had this spelling of the name pronounced KEE-rah. Of course, anybody has the right to pronounce their own name the way they choose. Many diverse spelling of names have come about over the years, but I am a traditionalist and choose the spelling Kyra. Anyone who pronounces Kyra any other way than Kee-rah is putting their own spin on the name, varying it from its origins." Jan. 25, 2009: Report as inappropriate
