Mira is a beautiful name and the meaning 'sea, ocean' is perfect. It might be nice as a short form of Miranda or Mirabelle/a; I tend to like names with more variety for when a girl is older. I think for twins, Mira and Flora would go well together, since they have similar qualities and equally beautiful meanings. Then their middle names could be…
• Flora Pearl
• Mira Jasmine
• Flora Daisy
• Mira Elanor
• Flora Elizabeth
• Mira Isabelle/a
Etc, etc, etc.

I knew a girl named Mira, and she is one of my nicest friends. She says her name Mee-Ruh, not My-Ruh though.

I thought it was a short form of Miranda at first, and still liked it, but now that I know it means sea and ocean, I love it. It is much better then the very common Mia and I prefer it to Maria.

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'... :(

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.

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

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".

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.
