She keeps her faith through thick and thin and makes the best of all. She lives with some uncertainty, knows not what dawn may bring, but he knows nothing stops his girl from doing anything. Whether star or stripe or bar adorns his collar or his strife, nothing means more to a soldier than the one he calls his wife.

I like the name if its pronounced Meer-a more than my-rah... but either way it sounds great with Dawn!
I don't think its common at all!

The only Myra I know or have heard of recently is 55 - so I don't think it's common
Hers is pronouced My-rah, not Mir-a.

The only Myra I know is also 55+, with chin hairs.

NMS, probably helped with the fact it reminds me of the above.

I like it. I agree it is a name from a different generation but I love names like that. One of my favorite girl's names is "Maya" - pretty similar. Dawn reminds me of a hippy name from the 70's. lol...I don't mean that in a bad way - it just makes me think of a flower child

I think they sound pretty together! I don't think Myra is that common but I do like it.

I love Myra pronounced My-Rah.
But I don't like Dawn at all.
That being said, they do flow well together.

Myra is okay, pronounced either way, but its not a name I'd use. I think it goes well with Dawn, and I don't think its common at all, at least not where I live.

I think Myra is OK and not common at all. I think it sounds good with Dawn as a middle name.
