I'm pretty sure that Shira is a Spanish name, not a Hebrew name.

I think that it is a Spanish name, but I know for a fact that it is a Hebrew name. It originated in Hebrew, and was probably taken by the Spanish. Many names are like that.

It is definitely Hebrew. I'm Jewish and I love my name and a lot of people like it too.

My friend Shira pronounces it SHEER-UH. Everyone loves her names, it's so pretty.

How about this for a theory, for those of you who think it's a Spanish name: The name was used by Sephardi Jews in Spain, and then their Spanish neighbors borrowed it. Anyone agree?

I think this name is absolutely beautiful. It has a nice meaning as well.

This is my mom's name, she spells it 'sheera', since her mom didn't want people to mispronounce it as 'shy-ra'. Definitely Hebrew origin, meaning poem/song, although perhaps there is a similar name coming from other origins too.
