Have just recently heard of this name and really like it, thinking of it as a definite possibility!

Would like to know what you think? It's not pronouced with a hard 't'. So Thyra not Tyra.

reminds me of Thyroid

frazzledoldbag Mon 07-Sep-09 21:59:33

sounds medical somehow.

sweetkitty Mon 07-Sep-09 22:06:27

Not keen sorry, does sound too much like thyroid

What about

PuzzleRocks Mon 07-Sep-09 22:07:44

Sounds like thong and lycra.

dizzydixies Mon 07-Sep-09 22:10:44

why not Thora and be done with it smile

I also thought it was a medical issue until I saw it was posted under "baby names."

Nope sounds like a prescription drug.

agree with everyone else sounds as though it has something to do with your thyroid.

Having just written a 3-page letter about DD2's hypothyroidism can I add to the deafening shriek of "THYROID"!!

and thighs. Makes me think of thighs. Mostly this is not an attractive thought

Ondine Tue 08-Sep-09 16:06:02

Thanks for the replies, it's a resounding no then.

I can see what you mean about the prescription drug thing.

It's an old royal name, Princess Thyra of Denmark... but I digress, I will think of some more names!

BerylCole Tue 08-Sep-09 16:06:41

Deffo Thyroid.

bellissima Tue 08-Sep-09 18:06:33

Agree with the others. And not Tia either - unless her middle name is Maria. Talia et al okay.

I knew a Thyra once but she was German, so the pronounciation was Türa. And she was of a 'noble' family, the von suchandsuchs often give their children odd names.. I like it.

sweetkitty Tue 08-Sep-09 19:02:29

Tia quite popular up here, 2 in DD1's new class, the Maria thing would put me off too though

LilRedWG Tue 08-Sep-09 19:05:53

Hmmm - cross between Myra and thyroid? Sorry, it's a no from me.

Ondine Tue 08-Sep-09 20:13:08

Interesting you say that Thusnelda, the setting in which I heard the name was quite high society. Not my usual scene I hasten to add but did think the name was truly unusual but still quite classical.

Though i'm getting the message almost everybody seems to think of a Thyroid which is not good.

Tia just reminds me of the yucky drink.

WesternBelle Tue 08-Sep-09 20:37:45

Don't like it, sorry - sounds like Thyroid and Myra like somebody else said (not the most glamourous of associations! wink)

If you like Thyra how about Myrtle? Similar vein but just as different.

Ondine Tue 08-Sep-09 21:49:18

Myrtle is nice although I think a little bit too staid? Though on the herb front Sorrel is on the list.

masonicpixiesreadthedailymail Tue 08-Sep-09 23:05:58

I like sorrel
