I first heard this name 6 years ago, and I thought it was pretty unique. I’ve noticed that Mila has suddenly become super popular and there was a point where I felt like every baby girl was named Mila. I like the name Mila and I think it’s a really pretty name for a girl. I know someone who named her daughter Mila 3 years ago, and the name was probably at it’s peak at that time. I think Mila is one of those names that were super trendy for a short amount of time, and it is probably because of Mila Kunis or its similarity to Mia, which is even more popular so maybe parents saw it like an alternative to Mia. But it is a pretty name so I see why. I would use Mila as a middle name for a girl.
Mila is a very pretty name. I pronounce it MEE luh. It’s definitely in my top 10 names for a girl.
Not a huge fan it’s a lot better than Nala but still carries the same sounding. Maybe consider Myla.
I agree this was so trendy for a short period of time... kind of like the Debbie’s of the 60s.
So overdone and so over it!
I recently legally changed my name to Mila-- as I'm transgender, and I've always loved that name. It's very unusual to me, I originally heard of it because of Mila Kunis, and the name stuck to me for years. It's seemingly not a very common name here in America (at least from what I've heard), but it is in central/eastern Europe. I of course think it's a beautiful name.
This name was SO trendy for a short period of time.
My real name is Mila, (Anna’s my middle name) it wasn’t really common from where I’m from when I was born and I’ve only met one person I’m pretty sure with the same same, but I’ve noticed it’s become more popular which I find kinda sucks, since it used to be more unique.
This name is so lovely! It's on my top list - Mila, Rose, Grace, Willow and Clara.
Also an English name.
My-Luh.
Something similar like Mia, only with an extra L in it. While Mila looks a little bit better than the really boring Mia, however also nothing much interesting about this name.
I love Mila so much. My Slavic roots make this name very dear and special to me. I understand this might not be everybody's thing, but to me it is wonderful. Much love!
Beautiful name.
I feel like every other birth announcement is Mila. I’m kind of over it.
Okay, but there are better names out there!
Cute, but I don't like how popular it's getting. I've had Olivia picked out for over 10 years and it's became so popular, I don't think I can use it. Mila is riding the same wave.
I prefer Kamilla or Camilla, sorry.
This is on our name list, although I'm not quite sure I like it as a full name. I prefer it more as a nickname.
Mila Kunis is a good namesake.
Okay. Where I live, this is the most popular name for girls. I think it's a sweet name, but it's so popular. Like, Mila is the new Emma where I live.
I’m surprised to hear that this name is so popular, I had never even heard of it up until recently. It’s cute though. I prefer this to Mia.
My name is Mila, and I think it's 'cuz` I'm French. It is a very cool name, made of two musical notes!
I like Mila for a name. It's very pretty. I prefer the “my-luh” pronunciation. I really like the sweet meaning, “gracious, dear”. I like Mila both as a nickname (especially for Camila) and as a full first name. Although it is very popular, I don't think its prominence has to ruin the name. It's still beautiful; in-fact, its fame just goes to prove that!
Also, I think Mila would be a cute “sister name” for Maya, Mia and Miles.
Lastly, commenter “Ivypool8465” mentioned that the name is a combination of two music notes (“mi” and “la”), which, especially as a devout music lover, I think is very cool and creative.
Overall, I think Mila is a nice name.
So trendy. I see this name every other week in birth announcements. It was actually at the top of our list until I said it a few times (pronounced Mee la). It just annoyed me having to say it for some reason.
My name is Mila [MEE-la] but my mom named me that because she wanted me to have a name no one else had...And I was not named after Mila Kunis.
Also Slovene: https://sl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mila_(ime)
Also Moldovan (you'll find numerous bearers on social media).
I have a friend called Mila but it's pronounced MILE-A (like Myla) and personally I prefer it that way.
Pretty cute, but it's very trendy. There are probably a bunch of Milas under the age of 5 currently. Along with Everly and Luna, I think Mila will become dated to the 2010s.

JEEZ! This name is too gorgeous for me to even say it! One of my best friends has the name Mila! Honestly, if I had a daughter, I would give her the name Mila, because the name defines the beauty and purity that my child would have!
It's pretty and has a cute meaning, but hard to pronounce for most and it's getting too trendy, mainly because of the actress Mila Kunis. I wouldn't be surprised if this name dies as much as it got popular in the next 10-20 years.
Mila [MEE - la] is used in Spanish-speaking countries as a diminutive of Milagros.
Liam is an anagram of Mila.
I don’t particularly like this name, but I have a friend named Mila. She’s very funny, but “gracious” or “dear” are not what comes to mind when I think of her.
Mila is a very beautiful name, however it's becoming very common. I think it would be a lovely nickname for names such as Camila or Milena.
Actually even in Slovenia we use Mila as a name, the various names have the element 'Mila' inside them:
Ljudmila (Lyudmila)- ljud-people Mila-kind, aka "kind to people", Bogomila (rare)- bogo/bog -god/gods, Mila- kind/-->aka "kind with gods" or "gods are kind with her" and so many more. I particularly don't like my name (Mila), because everyone thinks I am calm and kind. Maybe I am not like my sister whose Slavic name means barbar (barbarian), which describes her pretty well.
In my opinion this name is kinda heavy and it sticks in your mouth when you say it... or it is just me...
Hate the way this name sounds.
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.

A very sweet and charming 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.
It's nice as a full name but I like it best as a nickname for Millacent.

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.
This is a really cute and pretty name. :)
Really cute and simple name!
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!
Mila J (real name Jamila Chilumbo) is an American singer and rapper.
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.

Beautiful, modern, unique. Everyone named Mila should be proud of their name. It's a lovely name!
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.
