Gender: F Meaning of Ira: "watchful one" Origin of Ira: Hebrew

Ira for a girl. Yes, we consider it a good candidate for a gender switch, in light of tonal similarities with girl's names like Tyra and Keira. Annette Bening and Warren Beatty broke the ice by using this Old Testament male standard as the middle name of their daughter Isabel. Caveat: It does have that retirement fund connection.
