"My name is Miah, I have never actually met a person who spells it this way.(pronounced my-ah)
The correct pronunciation is my-ah not me-ah
You don't say Jeremiah like me-ah. That's how everyone pronounces it when they read my name though, for some reason.
I love it, it's beautiful and unique :)" Jan. 1, 2014:
"My name is Miah and people most often pronounce it mee-ah, instead of my-ah. I have never met anyone else with the same name. My middle name is Jenai ( juh-nay) and I think that the two names fit nicely together" Jul. 19, 2013:

My name is Miah it sounds exactly like "Mia".... I'm half Italian and half Mexican and proud;)...I'm 14 years old going on 15:)...I'm also a sophmore in highschool:)I love my name... I now know there are many girls named "miah" but I have never met any one with the same name:(... which I find pretty unique:D I know in spanish and Italian my name means "mine", in greek it means "great",in hindi it means 'a dream":)... My parents had decided my name after they had already discovered the name "Mia" they didnt want to name "Mia" since it happens to stand for MISSING IN ACTION = M.I.A. so they simply put a silent "H" at the end:) And YES! it is sometimes miss pronounced as "Maya" but what can I possible do than correct them by telling them exactly how its pronounced?...:) but all the miss pronouncing can not change how much i love my name and my parents for giving it to me:)

"Miah is my daughters name. Just a different spelling from Maya. Which means "mother" in Greek, "close to God" in Hebrew and, my favorite, "divine creative force in everything" in hindu. The only problem she's had is with pronunciation. People say me-ah long 'e' instead of long 'i'. But it doesn't bother her, she just corrects them and continues on her way!" Jul. 8, 2005:
