"Miranda rights" or the "Miranda warning" is the name given to the list of rights a cop must read to a suspect upon arrest, including the right to not incriminate oneself and the right to an attorney who can be present at questioning, making it clear that any statement the suspect makes can be used against him and that the court is required to appoint an attorney if the suspect can't afford one. The "Miranda" in the title comes from the Supreme Court case Ernesto Miranda v. State of Arizona, which established the necessity of these warnings.

Miranda is a Shakespearian character. In the play, "The Tempest" she and her father, Prospero, are shipwrecked on an island for years, until some more people come and rescue them. She falls in love with one of them, his name is Ferdinand. I like her because she's gutsy and independant.

Miranda is the child in the "Miranda books". They are children's books by the Swedish author Kerstin Sundh. For example "Miranda and Love". I really enjoyed reading the books as a child.
By the way I love this name. Very beautiful, and then it even means wonderful. I absorb that name's meaning.

Miranda Grey is the name of the other main character (the one who gets collected) in John Fowles's The Collector. I'm not sure I could use this name for a child because it's so strongly tied to that character for me.

One of my favorite books is "The Secret in Miranda's Closet." It is about a young girl named Miranda who discovers a beautiful antique doll, but hides it in her closet because her mother has based her career on the belief that dolls are anti-feminist. Over time, this doll changes the lives of Miranda and those around her for the better. It really is a sweet story and I highly recommend it.

Miranda is the name of the beautiful main character who disappears mysteriously in the Australian novel "Picnic at Hanging Rock" by Joan Lindsay.

Miranda is also the mermaid in the 1948 movie of the same name; Miranda is played by Glynis Johns.

Because of these two Mirandas, as well as the one in Shakespeare, I always think of Miranda as a lovely magical, mystical sort of name, connected to nature and the sea.
