Myra is tainted over in the UK, because of child serial killer Myra Hindley, that much I do know.
My British grandpa was already living in the USA when the killings, and subsequent trial took place, but he was obviously aware of the story through his family back in the UK.
My grandma's sister almost named her daughter (my mom's cousin) Myra, but she noticed my grandpa recoil in horror at the name, and when he explained why, my great-aunt chose not to use it.♥ Margaret Mary ♥

A lot of people, their parents or themselves lost a lot to her. It's still a really strong connection to the name, and not exactly positive to many.
Plus it's still really dated here.Tallulah, Persephone, Eris, Saskia, Natasha, Zhanna, Matthias, Andreas, Dean, Isaac, Jude, Christopher, Caleb, Victor, Fabian, Skyler, Dexter, Cecily, Alannah, Savannah, Hester, Britta, Xanthe, Temperence, Violetta, Anton, Anatoly, Maksym, Ilya, Raphael, Gabriel, Xanthe, Carmen, Electra, Dahlia.
