Lyra, the liar?
I really like Lyra; but I worry people will think of liar before they think of lyre or lyre bird. Is it a problem?Still hoping to change my username Sweet Amara... Fingers crossed!
I loved Elsa before it she was cool I saw her as this mystical, magical, completely unique, baffling and all her own kind of girl. She'd also honour my grandmother and great-grandmother from Deutschland.
Ronan will be my future son's name for the sake of spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous. And in memory of Ronan Sean Thompson.

They won't! At least not from my experience. The only problem I have, is that I live in Denmark and I don't like the way the pronounce my name the Danish way.Proud creator of Emmanuelle, Alicia, Nicodemus, Eamon, Andrew, Seventeen, Aurel, Blodfyr & Idra

That put me off using the name for our last baby. DP loved it, but all I could hear was liar, though I love the mythology and imagry of the name, the sound just didn't work for me.Mum to Mousie, Foo, Bumptious and Pudding.

That's somewhat a concern of mine, too, but we're definitely using it as a middle name because it's meaningful to us. We're using it to name future-child after Lyra from His Dark Materials, which is the first thing I think of when I hear Lyra. I don't think the "liar" issue is going to be a big one--it only came to mind for me when I started over-thinking things. It's such a beautiful name that people are going to notice that before they associate it with "liar!"Writer. Name lover. Dreamer.
