    Default Silent H

    I want to name my daughter Thyrah and pronounce it Tyra. Is that acceptable?

    Congratulations...

    Sure why not... Generally with proper nouns (names of people, place, thing) there are'nt any specific rules for pronunciation.
    BTW where do you hail from?

    Others have that name. According to Facebook, there's a Thyrah Clement in New Orleans.

    About the name and the spelling, go to Girls names starting with T, scroll down to Thyra. Thyrah, Tyrah, Tyra are spelling variations.
