I love this name, which is funny, because I hate the male name Cyrus. Cyra sounds beautiful, yet simple, and I can picture it on a normal girl as well as a queen in a fantasy story. Lovely name.

Cyra (pronounced SY-rah) is the feminine version of the Persian name Cyrus meaning "sun; young; lord".

It is also of Arabic origin (سائرہ) with the same pronunciation (SY-rah) though usually spelt Saira or Syra meaning "bird; traveller".

Fun fact: there's a grape called "Syrah".

Cyra is NOT of Arabic origin, whatsoever. It is of Persian origin. Cyra is a derived from the Persian Kureish which is a name that is believed to be from the Persian Khur, a name for the sun. The Persians placed high value on the sun. Further, Persian and Arabic are completely different languages. Persian is an indo-european language. Arabic is not. Both are wonderful languages but they are very different languages. And yes, this is a beautiful name.

This is so pretty, pronounced either 'seer-a' or 'sy-ra'. It's a genus of ladybugs too, awww.

This name is pretty. It has a soft sound to it. I also like the Spanish form Cira.

This is a really beautiful name. It just sounds elegant and beautiful! I wouldn't use this as a first name, but I think it would make a good middle name.
