    Lyra? Pronunciation & thoughts?

    Do you think it's LIE-ruh or LEER-uh? I actually really like both pronunciations and I think it's a great name, but I'm curious to see what everyone else thinks
    Do you think Lyra Juliette flows well? (With a one-syllable last name).

    It's 'lie-ra'. I wish it was pronounced 'leer-a' though

    Actually my best friend's middle name is lyralyn, and she pronounces it leer-ah-lyn.

    I fell in love with Lyra after I read the His Dark Materials trilogy forever ago. I'd like to use it as a middle name spot in the future... maybe. I just wish it didn't start with "lie."

    I think Lyra Juliette is gorgeous.
