My name is Tyra and I was named after my great aunt from Sweden. Her name was spelled Thyra. It was pronounced "tear" "a" just like a teardrop. My name is pronounced the same way, my mom just removed the h when she named me. I frequently find myself arguing with people about the pronunciation of my name, I believe because of Tyra Banks. But I absolutely love my name and think it's beautiful.

As a native English speaker, my first guess at how to pronounce it would be something more like how you'd say the word HEAR (theara). I was doing some family history and learned that she is one of my direct ancestors so I'm interested in learning more about her.

Thyra is my middle name and is after my great aunt from Sweden. In all these comments no one has mentioned how it's pronounced. It's said like "tear - a". Like tear as in a teardrop.

I've always found it so beautiful and if my first name, Samantha didn't have the story it does, I'd go by Thyra. If only people stopped saying "Thigh - rah".

I think it's weird how he chose that "thyroid" spelling!

This spelling reminds me of the thyroid gland.

Thyra is the older and/or Danish spelling of Tyra. Queen Thyra Dannebod is a famous Danish queen. The name Tyra/Thyra comes from the old Nordic name Thyrvi.
