This name is considered very dated in Croatia today. It's cute, but I wouldn't use it.

I always thought of Mira (pronounced "mear-uh") as a stand-alone name being very refined, elegant, and mature-sounding, kind of fit for the daughter of some rich well-to-do family.

As a nickname for Miranda, Mirabelle, Miriam, etc., it's a little too cutesy for my tastes. It kind of ruins the image I originally held for the name in itself.

This is the middle name of the character Olivier Mira Armstrong from the manga/anime Fullmetal Alchemist. I had never heard of it before, but it is a cute name.
