    Lyra Pronunciation

    I really like the name the Lyra. After some research it looks like it's usually pronounced Lie-ra, but there are also many who prefer Leer-a. Personally, I like both. What do you guys think? How did you first assume it was pronounced? Which do you prefer?

    To me I would assume it's Lie-ra.

    Leera would garner Lira to me; it sounds like the old Italian currency.

    I like Lyra! Like @sansa_nanami, I would assume Lyra was LYE-rah and Lira was LEER-ah. Although I have heard Lyra said like leer-ah. I like both, but atm I like Lyra more. It's sweet and unexpected.
