  • "Ira is a male name, commonly borne by grandfathers in the United States but rarely by children nowadays. Women are usually Irene or Iris (both names derived from Greek mythology), but I suppose Ira makes a cool girl's name. Irene is probably considered a bit grannyish at the present time, but Iris is the name of Jude Law and Sadie Frost's little girl. So I guess that while Irene is uncool and Iris is cool, Ira for a girl is even cooler." Jun. 11, 2008: Report as inappropriate

Yes, folks usually allude to the Individual Retirement Account, and, occasionally to the Irish Republican Army...once in awhile, to Ira Hayes, a native American who helped raise the flag on Iwo Jima (and was in that famous photograph)."
