Comments and insights on the name Ilyra: | Edit

This is a variation on what I think is a Russian name- Aleera.

Personal experiences with the name Ilyra: | Edit

I did not like the way the traditional name is spelled but I loved the way that it sounded (you could also spell it Alyra, but we chose Ilyra because our daughter's name started with an A). My husband and I argued for months on how to spell it and settled on this version.

Meanings and history of the name Ilyra: | Edit

Interestingly enough, I looked it up and it is (at least potentially) Greek. I think that if you take the I and Lyra part, in Greek you get the meaning "like a harp" which is nice, so that is what I am sticking with.

The traditional name Aleera was used in "Van Helsing" with Hugh Jackman and is Dracula's youngest wife. This spelling is actually a spaceship somewhere in the Star Trek saga, towards the beginning, I think.
