Etymology of the name ELIRA.
Meaning of the baby name ELIRA.

  

ELIRA.  A feminine form of Albanian Ilir (q.v.), meaning either "from Illyria," or, "star." 

... Although she spent sixteen hours out of the twenty-four combing her carrotty long hair, yet she was an iceberg in the family, and brought shadows in and about them, until their pleasant family circle became Pandemonium.  Shelley had not the courage to say to this Elira, his wife's sister, "Go away!" but she eventually affected him so much that he almost hated her, and she had such an influence over his wife that seeds of discord were soon sown so effectually between their young hearts, that in a fit of desperation he separated from her whom he had promised to love till death should separate them. (Herald of Health, Holbrook, vols. 13-14, 1869)
