    I wanted to pronounce Lyra 'leer-uh'.
    But if that doesn't work, you could go with Lyric?

    I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter. I can say that the only thing I hate from HP is the doom of my favourite name, Bellatrix.

    You can pronounce it Frances if you want. If you've fallen in love, leera is fine, though she would have to correct people on first meeting.

    I would use Lira to get LEER-uh, but then of course that pronunciation makes me think of someone, well, leering.

    I'm so glad you posted this prompt -- I put the same one up awhile back but it didn't take off and there weren't many suggestions. I love cosmological names.

    My favorites (regardless of whether they've been posted already):

    Adrastea (Jovian moon)
    Asta (Latin: bright as a star)
    Bituin (Tagalog: the stars) this is a new find for me, and I am love loving it.
    Hoshiko (Japanese: star child) the meaning is just so perfect, I adore it.
    Ortzi (Basque: sky)
    Sitara (Hindi: star)

    Apologies if any meanings are off, I don't speak with authority
