Meaning of the name Lyra

Ancient Greek name (λύρα). According to ancient Greek mythology, the young God Hermes created the lyre from the body of a large tortoise shell (khelus) which he covered with animal hide and antelope horns. Lyres were associated with Apollonian virtues of moderation and equilibrium, contrasting the Dionysian pipes which represented ecstasy and celebration.

I hate when it's pronounced LIE-rah - ('y' like 'eye'). LEE-rah is ok, though.
