Comments for MIA:

This name is from Italy. But in Spanish the definition is "mine". Some people don't believe that it should be considered a name, just a word showing possession.

The name Mia is pronounced "Mee-ah". I don´t like it pronounced like Maya "My-ah" that´s just wrong.

This can be a pet form of the name Amelia.
-- PeacieFreak13  5/29/2005
Mia is simply cute. And I have to say MEE-a is the right way to pronounce it. But spellings don't always follow the rules. Personally, I like to pronounce it MEE-a in some names, and MY-a in others.

For your info, Mia also means MY LOVE! My name is Amelia and I mostly get called Mia. Put your head on right and respect other peoples names, please! It's a good name! You don't have to agree with me, but you don't need to insult all the innocent Mia's out there!

I named my daughter Mia and I think it's a beautiful name. It's simple but it's different enough that you don't hear it everyday. I would love to see the name of this person that thinks it's so stupid, but it couldn't be any worse than their screenname. lol.

Mia... A sweet but ordinary name. I mean, it attracts attention, but everyone loves sweet names. It isn't a harsh name, it's easy to say, quick to get through with, but mostly adorable. I love it.

Mia has recently become extremely popular with Hispanics in the USA because of a telenovela called _Rebelde_, which featured the very popular young Mexican actress Anahi in the role of Mia Colucci.
-- clevelandkentevans  5/12/2006
The name Mia Colucci that clevelandkentevans mentioned previously was also used for the same character in the original version of "Rebelde" made in Argentina that was called "Rebelde Way". The character was played by Luisana Lopilato.
-- 6diablesse6  12/30/2006
I've always found this name to be sappy and simple, almost sickly sweet. It sounds okay for a 2-year-old, IMO, but once you reach puberty, it sounds like...ugh...unpleasant.

I'm sorry, but if you MUST name your daughter this, name her Maria so she'll have something to go by when she's 13.

I think my name MIA is a wonderful name! It's so cute and short. It works for kids and adults. And by the way, be nice, other people have feelings too.

-- alexyasha  12/27/2006
I think Mia is an adorable name for children under five, but I think it sounds a bit wierd for teens and adults. Name your child Amelia or Maria. You could call her Mia as a nickname. (I dislike Mia from Princess Diaries, pretty or not.) In my opinion, Mia sounds a bit too simple, and too goody-goody.
-- 7up  1/2/2007
I think this is an simple, yet somehow elegant name. It reminds me of someone who's uperclass and social, with maybe just a little bit of a wild side.
-- equestian  1/10/2007
I strongly dislike this name, and I would no more consider it for a child than I would my, mine, or mi. It's indicative of possession, not a name in its own right. I admit it has a cute, nicknamey sound. As such, I think it would be better to select an actual name such as Amelia, Mary, Maria, or Michaela and just use Mia as a nickname.

And Mia does not mean "my love." Mia on its own doesn't mean "my anything." It just means "my."
-- GasolineAllie  1/23/2007
Mia is so common, I've been called Mia G every single year in school, even when one of the other Mia's moved out of town. There was 4 Mia's in total, just in my class, and made the name totally uninteresting. It's ruined every thought of naming my child Mia something, even though my husband insists if it's a girl.
-- Anonymous User  2/6/2007
I don't like this name. It's too short and plain. Name your daughter Amelia or Maria, not Mia. It's not a name that's built to last.
-- black_lace  2/7/2007
I love the name Mia! It's simple and cute. But, I would rather name my daughter Amelia and call her Mia because it doesn't sound like much of a name for an adult. I always associate it with the adorable book, A Mango-Shaped Space, too and that makes the name even better to me.
-- writing the world  2/16/2007
If I have a 2nd daughter, I'd like to call her Mia Angela and it is such a nice name. I know that my daughter would love it.

My daughter is named Mia and I love it! It's beautiful and different and is your all-around perfect name for a girl. People need to understand that when a mother is naming their child, it's something that is special to them and they don't need people with bad attitudes to make fun or criticize the name. It's a special thing. Don't take that away from mom's like me!

I think some of the comments on here are a little harsh, I have a daughter named Mia, I think it is a lovely name and picked it because I thought it was a name that would grow with her and still do. It is a simple feminine name, I don't think it is a name that is neither here nor there, and certainly not a name I would give to a pet! I am hoping my daughter will grow into a strong independent women and I don't think this name holds her back from doing this!
-- NinaC  12/6/2007
My daughters name is MIA. As far as I'm concerned, it does sound upperclass, short and sweet, it's arty and sophisticated even though it's short. And the name sounds even better for a fully grown woman, especially if she's a head turner. As far as the name being "just a word" ? check out all the other names out there? Most of them are (just a word) and sound very much just like words. The name Mia means "the Greek feminine version of (the one)" and in Latin languages it obviously means "mine". The name Mia is a shorter version of the name Maria, in many languages. It's also a shorter version of the name Euphemia. Im sorry but to me, the name Mia is a short, sweet, beautiful name, which means a lot more than any word. To me it means that this little girl was loved from the day she was born, and that love will always be with her, as a subtle reminder (to all who choose to see it that way), in the form of her name.

I love this name, it is simple and sweet sounding. Not much room for anyone to misspell it. Although my daughter goes to school with a Mia, and a lot of people call her Miya at first and sometimes spell it either Miya or Mea, but after one time, they always get it right. And sometimes they think twice and think that the way they had it spelled doesn't look right and spell it as it is supposed to be. Mia.
-- Patricia Underwood  2/17/2008
I think of a pretty Italian girl when I hear this name. It's a pretty name, nice and simple, without pretensions. Not prissy, but very feminine.
-- ashesofroses88  3/11/2008
I love this sweet little name. I plan to name my first daughter this in the future, possibly Mia Lily. I hope Mia's popularity won't slip by the time I'd have a little girl because I don't want old-fashioned names for my children, but "in" names.
-- diamond  3/14/2008
It's a pretty name, but very common.
-- slight night shiver  4/30/2008
I think Mia is a beautiful name as a matter of fact. That's why I looked it up. My husband and I have decided to name our daughter Mia, which I absolutely adore and cherish. For all of the people who posted such negative and rude comments. Why did you even bother to look up this name and then go through the trouble of posting a comment on it? It seems mundane to do so IMHO.
-- Anonymous User  8/12/2008
I like the name Mia very much because, as others have said, it's short and sweet. I agree it sounds better on a little girl than on a teenager but not so much as other names I've heard. I hate the Mia in Princess Diaries but she doesn't ruin the name for me at all.
-- renee06  8/21/2008
Okay. For everyone out there complaining that this name means "my" or "mine," LOOK AT THE *MEANING* OF THE NAME AND THE *USAGE!*

It's a SCANDINAVIAN, DUTCH, GERMAN, or ENGLISH diminutive. It is *NOT* Spanish. Yes, there is a Spanish word that is spelled the same way that DOES mean "my" or "mine." However, the name Mia and the Spanish word Mia are NOT RELATED so quit the ugliness already!

One more time, say it with me, people, the name Mia and the Spanish word Mia are NOT RELATED.

"Mia" is used in the online pro-eating disorders community as a short form for "bulimia". Like "Ana" for "anorexia". I've had an eating disorder for 11 years, so trust me on this one. Kind of a shame, as I think both names are rather pretty.
-- Katja32  11/12/2008
Yes, it is also pronounced 'My-ah', as it is my name. In fact, every girl I've known with the name has pronounced it the same and ABHORS 'Mee-uh'. 'Mee-uh', now THAT is just wrong. But yes, I do love my name. When it is pronounced correctly.

I used to like this name, but the more I look at it the more I think Missing In Action.
-- faye  1/25/2009
I love the name Mia even though it also means missing in action, but it's cool if your daughter's name is an acronym! I would name anything Mia. The name is just flexible like that. I could name my daughter, my fish, or even my calculator Mia!

I have a daughter called Mia and think it is a beautiful name. As well as being very cutesy and sweet on a young girl I think it is very beautiful and classy for adults too. It is becoming quite popular which is sad to see but I don't blame people as it is such a lovely name. At least it isn't like a lot of recent popular names that have a modern trendy feel to them. Mia still sounds classic.

I'd like this name as a nickname for Amelia or Melinda or some other name, but not just on its own. It's too short just for a first name.
-- plutogirlgenius  7/24/2010
This name irritates me because the people who bestow it on their offspring always seem to have the idea that it means "mine" or that it is Italian or Spanish in origin. Or that it can be used as a nickname for almost name with an M in it. As a result, I associate with stupid and annoying parents who I imagine speak in a whining yet forceful way.

I'm completely bored with it; wake me up when the Mia craze is over please.

If this is for the pronunciation "Mee-uh", then I really dislike this name. If you say the name "Mia" over and over and over, it actually sounds painful to the ears. Also, when I imagine a girl saying "I'm Mia" or "My name's Mia" she automatically sounds annoying. It's like you can't take a "Mia" seriously. It's not even professional, I can't imagine someone named Mia as a lawyer, teacher, doctor, even a salesperson. It's just not a nice name. I now have a headache from saying Mia over and over again...
-- avengingangelx3  5/6/2013
I love this name, but people really need to stop saying that Mia is said as 'My-ah.' If you want it said that way spell it Maya. Mia and Maya shouldn't be so confusing, but Mia is a really nice name. Its sweet and short. The name can suit pets and humans which is nice as well.
-- Anonymous User  6/23/2013
I would be concerned with Mia being an acronym for Missing In Action. Adding a fourth letter would avoid this acronym & make it more substantial of a name. For those who like Mia, I would consider the alternatives of Mila, Maya, or the less dated Mira!

My name is Mia and your meaning/origin is all wrong! Mia is Spanish/Italian, the meaning means "Mine" as anyone who speaks Spanish, they will tell you what Mia means.

"Mia" is pronounced MEE-ah peepz, NOT MY-ah. (: If you like saying MY-ah, the correct way to spell it would be "Maya". "Maya" has a completely different meaning from "Mia".
