1: κυρία
(Strong's #2959 — Noun Feminine — kuria — koo-ree'-ah )

is the person addressed in 2 John 1:1,5 . Not improbably it is a proper name (Eng., "Cyria"), in spite of the fact that the full form of address in ver. 1 is not quite in accord, in the original, with those in 2 John 1:13 ; 3 John 1:1 . The suggestion that the church is addressed is most unlikely. Possibly the person is one who had a special relation with the local church.
