    Thoughts on the names Tatiana, Aurelia and Lyra

    Hello. I'm wondering what everyone thinks about the names Tatiana, Aurelia, and Lyra. Thanks for opinions.

    Is Lyra pronounced Ly(rhymes with sky or) or Leer-ah?
    Either one is not my taste. Tatiana is ok.
    Aurelia isn't bad-it's pretty-but I feel like the sudden popularity spike makes me almost dislike the Aur-beginning girls names. I really like Aura. Just Aura with a longer middle name.
    Sorry-I don't mean to shoot them each down. I do love the prefix Aur-
    One name the aur prefix reminds me of is Oriol. The bird is gorgeous and it is a bird name I love, probably with the nn Ollie. What other names do you like besides those three?

    Tatiana is my favorite of the three. I have seen far worse names!

    Tatiana - It's always been one of my least favorite -iana names. I'm not particularly fond of "T" names, to begin with, and Tatiana always seemed harshly, stereotypically Russian. And not really in a cool Russian way (because I love me anything European!), but in the harsh, unappealing, HARD way of life Russian. Oppressed by the USSR, poor, hungry, unable to feed her children, who has had such a hard life that she doesn't even seem pretty anymore; she doesn't have hope anymore. Sort of like most people see Olga (surprisingly, I love Olga, haha!). But recently, I started sponsoring a little girl in Peru who has it pretty hard (who is not a Tatiana), but while I was searching for the perfect little one to sponsor, I came across some ADORABLE little Tatianas, and it's taken on this beauty for me, and I would love to meet a little Tatiana I would just love! I'm still not sure I LOVE it, but I like it a lot more than I did.

    Aurelia - LOVE. It means "golden". How can you beat that? The nns are beautiful, the full name is beautiful. I just adore it. I would love to meet a little Aurelia.

    Lyra - love this, as well. I actually like Aurelia Lyra, personally. I think of David, playing his lyre for his sheep while he was still just a shepherd boy, fighting off bears and lions with his bare hands, protecting his sheep. It's a very beautiful, pastoral image for me. Most people think of the book by Philip Pullman (I think?) and Greek mythology, but neither of those really appeal to me. I do really love the name, though.

    Aurelia is my favorite, but I do really like them all!

    Good luck!

    Tatiana makes me think of sweet marmalade, but I haven't the faintest idea why : ) I do like it, but it would be a tad exotic for my taste (then again, Mercedes makes my list without a scruple). Lyra is pretty; it reminds me of the word lyrical, so I always think of what nice connotations it has. As for Aurelia (prn. 'or-ay-lee-uh' for me) I love it : )
