1. The name Myra comes from the ancient port and capital city of Lycia, now in modern day Turkey. The name was popularly associated with the Greek name for myrrh (Greek for "bitter"), an aromatic resin obtained from a small thorny tree. Myrrh was used widely for incense and fragrance, medicinal purposes, anointing the dead, and for flavoring wine. The city of Myra featured a large Greco-Roman amphitheater and once had a great temple to the goddess Artemis. The temple was later destroyed by the command of St. Nicholas, a popular bishop at Myra in the 4th century AD. St. Nicholas was known for his charitable nature and humility. Several legends about him have been based on his kind and giving nature and have led to the development of Santa Claus. In another link to Christmas, the name Myra is associated with the same "myrrh" that, according to Matthew, was brought as a gift to the infant Jesus by the Three Kings, along with gold and frankincense.

2. A witty, charming, mysterious female.
They named their baby Myra, because she was born near Christmas, and therefore associated with St. Nicholas as well as myrrh, a gift for the infant Jesus.

The most caring person you'll ever meet. She is the bestest at everything, even though she is really modest and says she isn't. She likes cats, manga, and music, and is the best friend EVER. She will give you a purpose in life, and after you get to know her, your life will be fulfilled. She is adorable in every way, and almost everything she does will make you want to say "Awwwww" and laugh at the same time. She has many hidden talents, and is good at playing instruments, drawing, arts and crafts, and has a beautiful singing voice. She's super lovable and amazing, and will always try, and succeed, to cheer you up if you're feeling down. She has the best smile ever, and even if your bunny has just died, if she smiles you will smile too. She is known for her beautiful red hair, and the small splash of freckles across her face. I'm pretty sure that by hanging out with cats, she has absorbed their cuteness, because she's cuter than a kitten in a teacup. She is also very smart and funny, but doesn't give herself enough credit for anything. She is literally the best person in the universe. If you are the one person lucky enough to be her boyfriend, then you are literally the luckiest person in the world. But I can promise you, you're not. And if she's reading this, then she should know that she is literally the best thing since anything. Love you!
"Oh. My. God. It's Myra! I heard she's the best person in the world."
"Yup. She is! She's so Myra."
