Another spelling of the name is Mireya, although it is hardly ever used.

I usually encounter Mirella more than Mireya, which is my name. The Spanish pronunciation is the same, but differs in English. I was named after a rich 'hacienda' owner in Mexico. I currently live in Southern California and it is rare to find someone with the same name and spelling as mine.

The Italian pronunciation is mee-RREHLL-lah, quite different from Spanish Mirella/Mireya. [noted -ed]

It's pronounced Muh-RELL-uh.

I think it has a nice ring to it. I was surprised that it didn't mean beautiful. I think that a good middle name for Mirella would be Rose, Sophia, Alexis, Hope, or maybe Faith.

In Spanish Mirella is used as a variant spelling of Mireya.

My Italian father named me Mirella after his niece who was born in France and used the French pronunciation Mireille.
Growing up in NY in the 60's and 70's with this name was not easy. Not like today where exotic children's names have become very fashionable. I longed to have a simple name like Mary or Ann. As an adult I appreciate the name I was given and do not tire of having to repeat it to acquaintances and have adopted the phrase "My name is hard to remember but once you do it's hard to forget".
Usually the difficulty lies in the pronunciation and I am usually confused with Mirabella or Mariella. Once I write it out for them it's easier for them to remember the correct pronunciation. I have never met another "Mirella" but have met people who knew someone with that name and are always surprised too, since it is so rare in this country. It is more common in Italy.
I love my name.

I just love my name. I have been fortunate to have lived in Argentina, Spain, Mexico and Italy and each country pronounced it differently. It was fascinating. However, the initial reaction I get from people is almost always priceless because they always say 'It's beautiful'!
