Kyra comes from ancient Greek kyros which is a form of the Persian word kurush. Scholars have suggested a number of meanings for this name, among them "the sun", "like sun", "young", "hero" to "humiliator of the enemy in verbal contest." It is often associated with the word kyrios, meaning "lord," though it probably shares no etymological connection. It is the feminine form of Cyrus.
