FAQs

What Does Kyra Mean? 

Kyra is a baby girl name of Greek origin that means “lady or female ruler.”

 

What Should I Consider In Choosing My Baby Girl’s K Name?

Knowing the name’s meaning can help you make the right choice for your little one. 

For example, while many exotic or foreign names look cute and unique, it’s important to know what they mean because the word might actually be bad or embarrassing in that language.

It’s also good to check the resulting acronym for your baby’s name or how the combination of their first and middle names might sound. Many names sound good individually but can seem strange or bad if used together.

A good way to catch this is to say the names out loud.
