    Is this a word you know exists, or one you're hoping does? – 1006a Jun 2 '17 at 19:26
  • According to a couple of online rhyming sources, there are only two pure rhymes to loyalty: royalty and disloyalty. Looks like you are s.o.l. – cobaltduck Jun 2 '17 at 19:39

    re-reading your request, "larceny" as in theft, rhymes a little bit in terms of the y at the end and the number of syllables. – Tom22 Jun 2 '17 at 19:42

Perhaps "Larceny" ?

It comes close to rhyming with "loyalty" with the same number of syllables and the "y" at the end.

Larceny means "theft" of personal goods which is in the greater area of "greed".

larceny - from Merriam-Websters online

1. the wrongful taking and carrying away of the personal goods of another from his or her possession with intent to convert them to the taker's own use.

My big thesaurus (1987 based on Roget's) has nothing that meets both criteria. On the rhyme, your best options are cupidity, rapacity, venality, or voracity

Starting with L there's even less: longing and *lust * are the best.
