If you’ve got a song in your heart when you think of your baby girl, consider naming her Lyric, whose meaning is tied to the lyre, an ancient stringed instrument. Lyric is a member of the sisterhood of musical names like Melody, Harmony, Cadence and Aria. Although it's typically thought of as a girls' name, Hollywood parents Soleil Moon Frye (“Punky Brewster”) and Jeremy London (“Party of Five”) chose Lyric for their son, which proves that the name, like music, doesn’t discriminate.
