Kyra, a girl's name of Greek origin, means "lord." This name has a familiar sound, like the names Keira and Ciara, but has a different root. This name might come from the Greek word kurá, which means "lady," or from the name Cyra, the feminine version of the name Cyrus. Kyra might also come from the masculine name Kyros and from the Persian and Egyptian word for "like Ra, the sun." Kyra is a shortened form of Kyria, which is a Greek title of respect for women. This name is unique enough to stand out on the playground but short enough that baby won't need a nickname.
