What an epic name.

This is such a cool name but I feel like a lot of people would mispronounce it, although the actual pronunciation is lovely.

Pretty. If I lived in France or Germany I could name my kid this.

It is a wonderful name! It's rare, indeed. My name is Mirela, the Romanian form and back in the day I was so avid about finding out what it meant and I asked one of my high school teachers about it and she said: "It comes from mirar, the French word for the English to admire. It also means the marvelous one."

It's a beautiful name, even though its kind of dated in France. It was relatively common at the beginning of the 20th century, got really, really popular in the 1940's, and by the 80's it was practically unused.

Pronounced mee-RAY-(yuh) with the gutteral French 'r'. [noted -ed]

I've lived in France for the better part of a decade and have never once met a Mireille. It could be that its origins in Provence make it a 'peasant' name, equivalent to the American 'redneck', so any name that originates there will NOT be fashionable here in Paris.

What loveliness.

Mireille Mathieu is a famous French singer.

This is my name, and it's generally pronounced Muh-ray by Americans. I personally don't like that pronunciation, and I'd much rather people pronounced it 'correctly'--a matter of opinion--Mee-ray is much nicer.

If anyone has taken French in the last few years, Mireille is one of the characters in the dreaded series "French in Action." Apparently, the actress was also a former porn-star (oh my!).

This name is so beautiful. I used to believe that it was pronounced "mee-relle" or "mee-rayl" or something like that, but a French friend of mine set that straight for me. It is pronounced "mee-ray".

I live in the US and my name is also Mirelle. When I was born my parents named me after a French singer named Mireille. When I was about seven they changed it to Mirelle because it was easier for people to pronounce.

In the anime Noir, there is a character named Mireille Bouquet.

There is also an Americanized version of Mireille: Muirae. There are two known bearers of this name in the US, myself and a teenaged girl in California. We've been in contact and have found that we both received the name after our parents "anglicized" Mireille.

A pretty name, pronounced mih-RAY in English. In French, it's mee-RAY with a gluttural R.
