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.

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.

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

This has to be one of my favorite names, if not my absolute favorite; As already mentioned, it's not common, but still not too uncommon.

Cyrus, likely named after the most famous bearer, was a character in the children's cartoon series "Storykeepers." He was an Ethiopian boy living in Rome, and fostered by Ben and Helena, who were Jewish bakers and underground church leaders.

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.

Pronounced See-ruws or KIR-uws.

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

I do like this name, but Miley Cyrus killed the name :( UGH!

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

Cult leader David Koresh took his name from the Cyrus of the Bible -it all led to the hideous Waco disaster in Texas.

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 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.

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.
