In Brazil, Mila is short for Camila. My name is Camila, and I was called Mila since I was little.

A famous bearer is Mila Kunis who was born in Ukraine. In her case it's short for Milena.

I like this name. It sounds so much more mature, professional, and beautiful than the trashy "name" Miley.

This name isn't related to Miley (MY-lee). It's pronounced MILL-ah or MEE-lah, not MY-luh. If you want to pronounce it MY-luh, than spell it Myla. Mila is a beautiful name meaning dear. I love it.

I have no idea why they don't write that it is also used in Belarus, Ukraine, Russia and many places in Eastern Europe. It is a nickname for a Slavic pagan name Lyudmila which literally means (loved by the people or dear to the people).

Beautiful, modern, unique. Everyone named Mila should be proud of their name. It's a lovely name!

Everyone likes this name? Really? A relative was like, "It's too bland. All the other names have a certain punch to them but this one is just blah..."

I have to say I agree, something about it is easy to overlook. Plus the male version, Milo, sounds better.

Not so unique anymore, unfortunately. In 2012, it ranked 115. That's just too big and sudden of a leap for a name that wasn't even on the charts 10 years ago for me. It stinks, because this is a pretty name that could've been unique.

I really love this name (& many M names!) but worry about its' rising popularity (due to Miss Kunis?) & that it may be a trend name that becomes dated. I think feeling dated is worse than the popularity issue. It is similar to the popular Mia & Maya and other lovely alternatives like Mira, Maisie, & Macey.

It's feminine and pretty. I really like the meaning too (gracious, dear, loved by the people). It's quite universal sounding too.

Mila J (real name Jamila Chilumbo) is an American singer and rapper.

Yes it's pretty! I like it a lot. Not because of the actress, although she is the one who brought it to light. It's pretty, refined and simple. And feminine!

Really cute and simple name!

This is a really cute and pretty name. :)

It's pretty and simple, but a bit too simple for me. I prefer names with a bit more spunk and edge that Mila simply lacks. I find it a little too soft for my taste.
RoseTintsMyWorld  5/10/2016
Mila is the diminutive form of Ludmilla, Milena, and other Slavic female names with the root word "mil", meaning gracious, dear, and loved.
A popular nickname (in Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia) for the name is Milochka.
This name is timeless in Slavic countries, though trendy in North America.
