[Opinions] How would you pronounce Kyra? (m)
I pronounce it kye-ruh but I watched the show Reba earlier and her daughter is called Keer-ruh but it's spelled Kyra.
I guess the main reason I pronounce it Kye-ruh is because I went to school with a girl named Kyra and that's how she pronounced it.

Keera, because that’s how it would be pronounced in my first language.

Kee-ruh. Though if you prefer Kai-ruh, I think people would adapt quickly.

KYE-ruhI actually wouldn't even question how to pronounce it if I saw it written and I definitely wouldn't think was KEER-uh. I used to be friends with a girl named Cyra and, even with the C, she pronounced it KYE-ruh.

I prn. it KEE-ruh, bc that's how Kyra from OKbaby pronounces it. I do prefer Keira for that one, though.

KYE-ruhI've seen it as Keer-uh on that show and maybe once in real life (although I think that was Cyra). Most Kyras I've met pronounce it KYE-ruh though.

I've taught a few over the years, it's semi popular here in Australia, well at least in my area. It's always pronounced kye-ruh.

My initial pronunciation for the name would be 'Kye-ruh' as well. Not to say that I haven't stumbled across the other one in use. And the Reba show, wow that takes me back. :D
