I love the name Lyric for a girl! It’s so beautiful and elegant! I agree with this name being unisex, but to me Lyric sounds more like a girl's name than a boy's name. The name Lyric has some feminine characteristics since music is a female stereotype. I can’t imagine this on boys at the current moment.

It's a bit out there, but it's a sweet name.

Lyric is a gorgeous name. It is feminine, it's creative, it's musical and my daughter loves her name. I'm so sick of people having opinions on everything, we named our children what we want I don't say anything when you name your kids Aaron and Aaron sounds like a boy's name but that's what they do. I wanted my daughter to have a simple name- her name is Lyric and she walks around and she sings all day long it wouldn't be any different if she didn't sing or if she didn't play an instrument it's just a beautiful name.

We have the freedom to name our children whatever we want to name them. I picked out this name for my daughter her name is Lyric Lashey. It is different and I love it, I never heard it being used for a male it doesn't sound unisex to me and Lyrica is a medication I wouldn't want to name my daughter that. We have this thing we call freedom of speech and everyone in America always has an opinion and it's not always positive. Different names are unisex, Lyric is not unisex like Melanie, Harmony and Lyric. I hate that everyone has to have an opinion about everything about what people name their kids or their children. I hate that everyone has an opinion about everything. I named my daughter Lyric because that's what I wanted to name her and I'm quite sure that you named your children what you wanted to name them and you didn't care about anyone's opinion. I hate that we have an internet for people to voice what they want to say and make other people feel uncomfortable. I love this name and I don't care about what you all think about it.

It's ok. By itself, it sounds very interesting and I'm a fan or the "lyr" part, admittedly. If it is for a girl (which I prefer) I think Lyrica, while not having as much meaning, flows better with a last name like Johnson or something like that. Though, I would not use either Lyric nor Lyrica. It sounds nice, but it doesn't seem like it will hold up well with others.

I have a daughter named Lyric. I chose Lyric, over lyrica, Why? Lyrica is a diabetes medication. No thanks. That's super unattractive. Could you imagine being a young girl watching tv and discovering you're named after a medication used for diabetes?

I like it on a girl only. It is pretty. I know of a male Lyric, and it sounds weird.

I much prefer Lyric on males and wished that it was higher among the name charts on their side. I don't care for Lyric on a girl. It seems way too masculine and boyish and not at all a proper girl name. If I were to ever use this name for any of my children, it would definitely be for a son.

In my personal opinion I think the name is awesome. My daughter's name is Lyric Lyn and Everyone I meet thinks it is an awesome name. Even my mother-in-law hated it at first, but now she's in love with the name.

My name is Lyric, and I personally don't like the name. My dad named me Esther Reese B. But my mother named me Lyric Aailiyah Rose C. The name is great, I sing a lot and always make music but, I still don't like the name.

My name is Lyric since 1984, and I was told I got my name because the doctor spanked me and I hit a high pitch note and just stopped.

My name is Lyric and when I go new places everyone needs me to repeat my name. I used to get really annoyed by it but now I'm accustomed to it and my friends also like the name. Everyone asks me why my parents picked my name! I think Lyric could be a girl or boy name. I am a girl named Lyric but once I was at Great Wolf Lodge and there was a boy named Lyric.

I used to think this name was really bizarre but recently, I have fallen in love with it being used on a boy!

I'm quite fond of Lyric used for a boy.

I know some woman who named her child this (gave all of her children music inspired names just because her husband's a musician) :-\
Melody & Lyric. Both rather cheesy if you ask me.

This name was also used, even as early as 1945 and perhaps earlier, and may derive from the surname Lyric.

This being a name is very new to me. I like the meaning of it and I get why this can be a possible choice for music lovers. It's not really for me though. I do think it's cool as a stage name or for a fictional character. I can see this name working for boys, not just for girls.

No offense but this name is horrible! You can read the lyrics of a song but it's not a name! I do like Lyrica a lot better though...

I have met people with this name, one was a girl and a boy who spelled it Lyrik. I like it but it's too, I don't know, 'musical' for me.

I think this name sounds so cool, but I agree that Lyric has a slightly masculine edge to it. I prefer the Italian version, Lirica, as a strictly feminine name.

This really does seem more masculine to me. It also has kind of a fantasy-esque sound to it and it definitely sticks out. But I do love it for a boys' name. (I like Lirica for a girl.)

In all my classes there really is no "Stand-out" name. But I know a boy named Lyric. It's a super cool name for a boy, and considering I'm a songwriter that makes me like it more but NOT for a girl.

I first heard the name "Lyrica" today, and I thought it was very pretty in a different way! "Lyric" sounds more like it would be a male name, and "Lyrica" would be the female version of the name. Kinda like Eric and Erica.

And if she can't sing (or play or compose music or lyrics), then what? This is a word, not a name.

A friend of my mother just named her daughter Lyric. I think Lyric is a fantastic name for a character in a book, because it's really original!

It's not a name I would personally choose, but I think it's sweet, especially if the parents are, say, singers, because it's a word that can really hold some special meaning to people (as can lyrics, haha).

I really like this name :) It sounds really strong. I think it should be unisex, though. When I first heard it, I thought it was a male name.

It sounds like a tacky name young and immature people would pick for their daughter. Besides, I am rather annoyed by people who seem to consider lyrics important. The best tracks in the world often don't have vocals to begin with. I think anyone who insists on ''deep'' lyrics just doesn't really appreciate music for itself, and should stick to poetry. And really, this name will not score your child credibility points.

I always thought of the name Lyric being more of a masculine name, although it sounds fine a girl. I agree with the above poster, this name should be unisex.

I think this name should be unisex. I'm writing a story, and the male lead's name is Lyric. I don't think it sounds especially feminine, and it's obscure enough that most people generally wouldn't know the difference.
