I like this name and thinks it goes well with my DD's name which is Erin. What do you think?

CremeEggThief Wed 21-Nov-12 20:07:14

I'm Irish, and it was the name of one of the main characters in a long-running soap called "Glenroe". He was a grumpy, middle-aged farmer...

I think it's horrible.

And it makes me think of Miley from Glenroe <gets coat>

LittleDonkin Wed 21-Nov-12 20:09:33

Erin is Irish too so prehaps it could work on some level grin

Also thinking of Mick lally as Miley!!!!!

Makes me think of Miley Cyrus aka Hannah Montana!
How about Milly?

LittleDonkin Wed 21-Nov-12 20:21:01

I dont like Milly as I see it as more of a "cutesy" baby name whereas I see Miley as having a bit of attitude and can actually imagine an adult with the name.

Sorry but it's really dire. Reminds me of that dreadful Miley Cyrus person.

I think it'd be bad on a child, terrible on an adult woman.

It's worth noting that Miley is Miley Cyrus' nickname, from "smiley", it is not her "real" name.

I have come across a couple of very young Mileys and sorry, I don't like it, I think it's chavvy.

what's her real name?

EvenIfYouSeeAPoppy Wed 21-Nov-12 20:28:33

There are so many pretty names you could use. Please don't saddle your child with that name.

Girls' names that go with Erin (nice name btw): Lucy, Amy, Amelia (and you could call her Miley as an unofficial nickname if you really had to), Lily, Emily, Anna, Sadie, I could go on.

Hulababy Wed 21-Nov-12 20:29:29

It would make me think of Miley Cyrus, as in Hannah Montana. As said already Miley was originally just her nickname, not her real name (think that was Destiny), although I think she has now changed her name formally to Miley.

Looks like I may revert back to my original favourites which are Lois or Thea!

Lois is fantastic!!

Thea sounds wet and lispy.

LittleDonkin Wed 21-Nov-12 20:41:28

Lois is my favorite I think it sounds great with Erin smile

RancerDoo Wed 21-Nov-12 20:52:11

Lois is a fab name, v v v cool.

Rhubarbgarden Wed 21-Nov-12 21:15:19

Thea is beautiful.

ConfusedandBemused Wed 21-Nov-12 21:27:56

Little donkin google Miley from Glenroe.....just awful really really awful!

forgetmenots Wed 21-Nov-12 22:24:55

Love Thea. Lois so-so, really dislike Miley, it's very trendy whereas I think Erin (and Thea) are classic. Good luck OP smile

I like Miley a lot.....It sounds like I'm alone on that one though!

winkle2 Sat 24-Nov-12 09:39:04

I like Miley too but I would use it as a nickname. Then you could say it evolved from her full name and people wouldn't think you named her after Miley Cyrus!

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 24-Nov-12 15:45:54

Miley Cyrus real name Destiny Hope Miseltoe

Miley is marginally better than that.

I really don't like Miley. At all. Marley might be better? Thought I don't like that much either.

mathanxiety Sat 24-Nov-12 17:53:59

Please NO.

With Erin as a sister, you would make a lot of Irish people smirk.

Lois or Thea would be far nicer.

How about Mila?

squoosh Sat 24-Nov-12 18:12:52

There could be a hundred perky American starlets called Miley in the world and still the first person that springs to mind when hearing that name is a certain craggy faced farmer from Glenroe.

Combine it with Erin and I'd think you were a Glenroe superfan!

squoosh Sat 24-Nov-12 18:14:15

math grin

I think the First and True Miley has a more earthy charm!

B1ueberries Sat 24-Nov-12 18:56:20

Well HOLY God Biddy

squoosh Sat 24-Nov-12 18:57:52

Is there anything shtirring Biddy?

B1ueberries Sat 24-Nov-12 18:59:03

it's for a girl!?

well holy god and I really mean it this time wink

What about Biddy?

LittleDonkin Sat 24-Nov-12 21:37:40

I quite like Mila smile

MaryAstor Sun 25-Nov-12 18:24:40

Maile pronounced My-lee is a Hawaiian name.

I knew one at primary school in the eighties. And there is an author called Maile Meloy and an actress called Maile Flanagan. It is unccommon but it is used.

Maile is a proper name. Miley - as has been pointed out already - is a pet name derived from 'smiley' in Miley Cyrus' case.

So, if you love the name I would go with the spelling 'Maile'.

Frikadellen Sun 25-Nov-12 19:24:18

I like Miley and I prefer it over Lois and Thea personally..

to the poster who asked what Miley Cyrus real name is it is..

Destiny Hope Cyrus according to wiki... (I think I would have taken Miley too)

LuckyOwl28 Sun 25-Nov-12 21:12:03

I really like Miley, makes me think of 'Smiley'
