There are a few things missing from some names you have listed here.

Mia- You only have it as a short form of Maria, but it's most obvious meaning is "Mine" or "My" in Italian and also perhaps another form of Mary!

Tia- It isn't only a nickname for names like Laetitia for example, it's meaning in Spanish is "Aunt".

Marya- It is a Slavic form of Mary and while you have her listed as a namesake under the name Marie, Marie Curie should really be listed as a namesake under this name as her real name was Marya Sklodowska, she was of Polish descent.

Thanx!
