because i think it is a very unique and beautiful name. I haven't yet to meet or hear of a Kyrene. I plan to name my daughter that. It comes from my best friend Karen Irene.

Kyrene or Cyrene was a mythological Greek figure who wrestled a lion causing the god Apollo to fall in love with her and kidnapped her to the city of Cyrene in North African which is named for her. Her name means "sovereign queen" in Ancient Greek.
