Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

Congrats on the baby and best wishes. Ayra and Ayrah are one and the same word in Arabic. Please see this (newly updated) answer for more information on this name: Is 'Ayra' an Islamic name? And if so, what does it mean?

    Yes Ayrah is a Islamic Name for Muslim Girls.
    Ayrah Means: Respectable, Noble.

    Ayra or Ayrah is the same.
