Hey does anyone know how to pronounce Zyra? I think it would be the perfect name for one of my oc but I'm not sure if I'm pronouncing it right and I want to be 100% sure. Because my character is in my novel. So if anyone know how to pronounce Zyra it would be help me a lot.

I think of two ways to pronounce it when I see it: Zi (rhymes with "eye") ra (rhymes with "uh"), or Zir (rhymes with "fur") ra (rhymes with "uh"). I think most people would pronounce it the first way, so if you want it pronounced the second way, go with "Zyrra," in my opinion. If neither way is correct, sorry for wasting your time ;)

Off-topic, you have one scary avatar :O

Z-ee-ruh, Z-eye-rah, Z-ih-rah, probably others; just depends on your accent, so go with whatever way comes out most naturally or sounds best to you.
