What's in a name?

Some of you have asked how to pronounce Kyrie's name. Excellent question. Long "i" sound, long "e" sound, like "K-EYE-ree," and the emphasis is on the first syllable. It's interesting, though, that her name is spelled just like the Greek word "kyrie," which in Christian liturgy means "Oh, Lord" as in "kyrie eleison," meaning "Lord, have mercy." So, I guess, even her name is a prayer. Cool, huh?

Course, "Kyrie" is also that '80s hit by Mr. Mister.

I'll post as soon as we hear about biopsy results.
