Meaning:Lord, ruler, sovereign queen; Of Irene; Peace; Of Cyrah; Throne, Sun
Fit for a feisty little one, Cyrene is a variant of the Greek names Kyrene, meaning "lord," "ruler," and "sovereign queen," and Irene, meaning "peace." This girl's name is super rare and is shared with a maiden-slash-huntress in Greek mythology. As the story goes, Apollo was head over heels in love with Kyrene and took her to Africa, naming a city after her. The ancient city of Cyrene in Libya was possibly the most important of all Greek cities in the region. Cyrene may also derive from the Persian name Cyrah, meaning "throne" or "sun." Either way, you can expect baby to have a bossy—better yet, assertive—streak and grow into their crown earlier than expected. It's the ultimate title for a baby fit for a throne!
