Cyrus is a very handsome name for a boy and it also regards as elegant. Miley Cyrus is a very great association and I love her music, and this is her surname. Cyrus does not make me think of a girl, just because it’s her surname and she’s a girl! As a first name, it’s strong and masculine and it’s great for a boy!

My son's name is Syrus. He's 9 years old and likes to introduce himself as Sy and thinks Syrus the Virus sounds cool. He likes his name, he's often complimented on his name and he doesn't get made fun of. I told him about the Great Persian King named Cyrus and he thought that was awesome.

I don't really like Cyrus (the appearance and pronunciation don't do anything for me), but I can see it in a more "old-fashioned" setting... somehow, when I see it used on young children at present, it seems diluted, comical, artificial and overblown, and in perfect name trend of recent years (which tends to include anything remotely pretentious, or kre8tiv). Cyrus seems a bit pompous to me.

I really like this name. It's strong and classic, but very uncommon. I've never met a Cyrus in my life. But... As much as I hate to admit it, I do think it may remind a lot of people of Miley Cyrus because its so uncommon as a first name. It's a shame, too, because it's a great name.

I don't believe Miley Cyrus ruined the name at all. Cyrus is an awesome-sounding name nonetheless.

I am not at all convinced of the etymology listed here. I suspect that Cyrus/Kurosh comes from the Sanskrit Suresh, meaning sun.

I like this name, and it doesn't seem as common as other biblical names. However, the association with the ghastly Miley Cyrus prevents me from liking it more.

I love the name Cyrus but I'm not a fan of the meaning. Also, it's vaguely reminiscent of the word walrus.

I love this name. :) It's not that popular, and yet wouldn't look so awkward on a nametag at work. It's perfect, I think.

Cyrus was my Grandfather's name, and is now my son's middle name. I love the name, it's different and almost exotic sounding. It makes me think of a large, strong, tough man. Like my grandpa.
