Mira is the name of a movie made in 1971, based on the 1927 novel De Teleurgang Van Den Waterhoek by Stijn Streuvels. The novel talks of a bridge built in Belgium in 1905 which was named Mira Bridge after the character in the novel.

Mira is the short form of Mirabell or Mirabella, a popular name in Serbia, Bosnia and Albania. It is derived from the Latin word "mirabilis" meaning "wonder".

Where in God's name have you heard Serbians or Bosnians called Mirabell/-a (especially with a double 'l' which is impossible). Nowhere! Mira is a short form for Slavic names containing the female form for "mir" (ie. Mira, meaning 'peace") either at the beginning or ending of a name.

The Slavic word for this Sanskrit name is "more", meaning sea (pronounced "mo-reh) though there isn't a name only a noun.

My name is Mira and I have always loved it. The only bad thing about it is that it is pronounced "Mee-rah", but I always get called "My-ruh".

The name Mira is short, simple, and pretty. I imagine this as the name of an artist.

I wonder if Mira is related to the Latin "mare", also meaning "sea". Sanskrit and Latin are Indo-European languages, so I feel it's likely.

I love this name. It's short, delicate and beautiful, like Flora. Ironically, it sounds watery for me! I would love to call my future daughter Mira, but I live on a Portuguese-speaking country, and 'Mira' is a word for 'sight'. So I'd be naming her Sight instead of 'sea'... :(
