    I say it as Lie-Rah.
    If I had a baby right now, I'd name it,
    Scarlett Amelia or Emerson Joseph.
    I also like Cashel, Gabriel, Genevieve, & Juliette. + So much more.
    I'm Ashley btw, and I'm 19!

    I knew a Lyra and she prn. it Leer-a. That makes sense to me because the lyr reminds me of lyric.

    I originally pronounced it leer-a but then I saw the movie and they pronounce it lie-ra. I think both are nice.

    I would think leera, and like that sound better than something that sounds like liar, but then again I don't mind Lila which sounds so similar,... So I'd probably grow to like the lie-ra prn as well.
