From the experts:
The girls' name Kyra sounds like the also popular Keira/Kiera, but has a different root. There are twice as many baby girls named Keira as Kyra, with Kiera in third place. All three spellings sometimes present pronunciation problems. With Kyra, some people people may pronounce it (incorrectly) to rhyme with Myra -- kye-ra.
