  • "My Mia arrived in September of 1999. I'd always loved the name, but had sort of forgotten about it until the Women's World Cup during the summer of 1999. Mia Hamm was the star player on the U.S. team and I was reminded of the name. I named my daughter "Mia Yasmine" (middle name pronounced "Yas-meen"). Like many others have noted, a LOT of people pronounce her name "Mya" ("Maya"). I wanted a unique yet not unheard of name for her. It never occurred to me that so many people apparently have indeed never heard of it, hence the botched pronunciation. Like the poster under mine, I often call her "Mimi". But that is a family nickname for her --everyone else refer to her simply and "Mia"." May. 7, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Our daughter - Mia Charlotte Southern, born 2004 (turns 3 in a couple of weeks). When I was pregnant we kept the name Mia under lock and key as we didn't want anyone else to have it. And every day or 2 I would check the births section in newspaper to see if anyone had stolen it and right up until 2 wks before Mia was born there had been none in there. Then I was crushed as I saw 2 one week & 1 the following. But that didnt deter us, its such a beautiful name. The name reminds me of a beautiful angel I once knew. R.I.P.

  • "My name is Mia Angelyne. It means "mine" in Spanish and in Italian, and my mom is Mexican and my Dad is Italian, so it's very fitting. I'm 24, and I don't know anyone my age with my name. A friend of mine named her daughter Mia, and that won't be the case for her as it's becoming very popular, which kinda makes me sad. I've enjoyed growing up with this unique name."

  • "I like being a Mia, except for the occational mispronouncment by some new teacher in my school years. However I do think that one of the major reasons me and my name have gotten along so well is how rare it was. I have only ever met one Mia in my age group. The first 29 years of my life with out meeting another person with the same name was nice. I don't think I would care for it so much if I had to share it with my peers. So now I seek more unique names in naming my children." Aug. 6, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • " used to be a great name ie Mia Farrow in her elfin hair marrying Sinatra in that 60's style suit...fab fab fab. But now, I have to be honest, my personal reaction is...yawn. Every second girl is Mia or Ava...I warn will be the next decades Jennifer." Jun. 23, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "It's funny that the people who have commented use "Mia" as a nickname. My name is just Mia (me-UH), and I love it, partially because it doesn't invite any stupid nicknames. Altogether, my first and last names have 7 letters, so it was nice that I could write my name before any of my preschool compatriots. It's a very feminine name with its terminal a. Some people like to pronounce it wrong (like my-UH), but this is improving as the name becomes more popular. I was born in the early eighties, and back then no one had heard of this name. I've actually had a few of my parents' friends name their kids after me because they like it so much (I'm not too bad a namesake either with these looks and brains). I'm not surprised Mia is getting more popular. It's simple and beautiful, and it rolls off the tongue with no harsh consonants. I've never disliked my name, though the 25th time I had to correct a teacher calling roll, I considered how much easier roll call would be if my name were Lauren."
