Currently compiling a list of our favourite boys and girls names for our baby due 30th January. We both love the name Mia but I remember seeing on a MN thread someone saying that 'every little girl seems to be called Mia'. Do other people share this opinion?
I don't know anyone else called Mia but I know its sometimes used as a nickname for Amelia etc. Frustrating because every single name I like DP doesn't and every name he likes I don't. Mia is the only girls name we've been able to agree on so far. I'd love Pandora for a girl but I appreciate its a bit 'out there' so can understand DP not wanting it.
I think it's a pretty name and popularity really depends on the area you live in, I only know of one in ds's school and shes a lovely little girl. More to the point if you and dp both like it who cares what others think! I had a similar dilemma when pg with dd we loved Delilah but others put us off and we ended up calling her a name we both liked but its getting very popular now
I know an awful lot of them, in London and the midlands. I was at a two year old's birthday party yesterday where there was an entertainer who gave out stickers with each child's name, and there were four Mias out of about twenty five children!
It's very pretty, but its popularity is augmented by it being used as a short form of Amelia, Emelia, Maria etc etc.
