I named my daughter Mila, but we decided to spell it Meela. It has eliminated any confusion on how to pronounce it. Meela Lynn is her name.

I've never known that the meaning of the name Mila is so good. I feel like, wow... because my real name is Patmila, my nickname is Mila, but my friends and family usually call me 'mil'. And the name of Mila that I get is absorbed from both my parents' names. Besides, in my country (Indonesia) there is no special meaning for the name of Mila.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.
