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?'Jessie' Jessica Emily Faith

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 Auntie/cousin to;

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!"
