As you can see from the popularity data, the name Tyra has been in use for the past few decades in the USA. It is unlikely to be related to the Scandinavian name and more likely to have been coined as a feminine form of the name Tyrone.

The English pronunciation of Tyra is nice.

However I like the name Tyra with the Swedish pronunciation better. It has history and also gives me a sense of myth.

Rather pretty in English, but absolutely disgusting in Swedish. Just awful.

I prefer the pronunciation "TÜ-rah" to "TIE-rah". The Swedish pronunciation is always prettier.

This is a pretty cool name in English, just like Kyra is. I also like the sound of Myra, so there's a pattern of coolness of sorts. This name is gawd-awful in Swedish, though, very ugly and old-fashioned.

My friend's mum is called Taheera, pronounced Tie-rah. I think it's an unusual way of spelling it - I like plain old Tyra better, though Tahira isn't too bad.

Can also be pronounced Tah-rah. My cousin's name is Tyra-Jade and it's pronounced like Tara.

Tyra is an old Danish name, but in old times more often spelled Thyra. Queen Thyra Dannebod is famous in Denmark. It was popular in Sweden around the turn of the century and is now popular again.
Thyrvi is an old Nordic name.

In English it is pronounced as "TIE-rah" but the original pronunciation used in Scandinavian countries is "TÜ-rah", more like "TEE-rah" .
