Lyric Name Meaning & Origin

Lyric

Pronunciation: LEE-rik (key)

Lyric is a bit self-conscious as a name, but its intensity and verve win you over. Unlike most names lifted from the world of music (Melody, Harmony), this name is no marshmallow. It's pretty but tough, and utterly modern. Its exact date of birth is 1994, in the film Jason's Lyric.

Comments and insights on the name Lyric: | Edit

This baby is my third. I'm three weeks away from finding out the gender. I've got a lucas and silver. Lyric was going to be Silvers original name but I chickened out. It came from Brent Smith of Shinedown, his son is called Lyric. I've loved them and lived through the music for years so I think it's appropriate. Fingers crossed its a girl.

My daughters name Lyric Justice. Her father picked her first name and I picked the middle name. She was born 3 1/2 months premature. At first no one liked the name, but now it's like like every other name to the family. When my daughter was younger and people would ask her name she had to repeat it several times. Once she asked me why people don't understand what she says. I told her that her names is differant and not many people have that name so they aren't sure if that's what she is saying or not. She said do they not like it. I said I don't know, but it doesn't matter if they like it or not it just matters if she likes it. She said I love my name mommy! Her name might be a little differant and not heard of much, but atleast its not a weird and hard to spell name! My daughter is not a healthy happy child getting ready to celebrate her 7th birthday in a few days!

Cyril and Lyric are anagrams of each other; they contain the same letters.

Personal experiences with the name Lyric: | Edit

3 Months before I became pregnant, I had a very vivid dream. It was of my mother who had passed on years before. In the dream she was carrying a baby car seat with a pink fuzzy blanket that seemed to luminate. I was taking an escalator to the top where my mom sat the carseat. I asked her who's baby did she have and she gave me a strange look and said that it was my baby. I looked at the blanket and I asked what was her name. My mom looked at me like I lost it and said "Lyric Rose, you big dummy!" And I was in shock and then when I went to remove the luminous blanket I awoke from the dream. When I learned of my pregnancy I immediately knew it was a girl and called her Lyric. But instead of Lyric Rose, I made it Lyric Jean. So my mother named her and everyone always seems to think I got the name from Jason's Lyric...But I say heck no.!!
-This is my daughter's name: Lyric Sileas. I chose Lyric based on my lifestyle. Sileas is a form of MY name, Julia. So... her name basically means musical youth, lol.
