Meaning:Ionian; Wetland
Lyrical Nyra is a feminine name of Greek and Maori origin, though these roots are challenging to trace. Possibly inspired by the Greek Ianyra, Nyra embodies the meaning "Ionian" and is associated with The Nereides, who were nymphs or goddesses of the sea. Nyra may also be an anglicization of the Maori word and New Zealand place name Ngaere, meaning "wetland." Elusive yet steeped in mythological wonder and geographical appeal, Nyra is brimming with mystery, magic, and adventure for your little water baby.
