My daughter is named Mirella - pronounced mu-rell-uh. The Hebrew meaning of this name is "God Spoke" which is why I chose this name- I had two children already and prayed about guidance on whether or not God felt I was finished with having children, though mentally I felt ready to be done. I also had a bible group who prayed for me on this as well. Despite the fact I was on several forms of birth-control and arguing with my husband about being done, I became pregnant within the month! God certainly spoke, and the name fits my daughter beautifully. Her middle name is Grace because God blessed us with grace with this child as well. The Hispanic folks always see her name and pronounce it as some of the other comments: Meraya, etc (mee-ray-uh).

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'!

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 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.

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.

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