Is it a lovely name? Never mind mentioning the TV programme as that won't matter in a year or so.

Not keen

Yes, it's lovely and its Shakespearian connection will outlive Ms Hart (though she's lovely too).

Not fussed. Not awful but have heard nicer.

I think it's rather soppy.

PicklesThePottyMouthedParrot Mon 24-Sep-12 19:05:06

I like it me!

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Mon 24-Sep-12 19:05:51

I luffs it.

I like it, for the sheakspearian connection, and a I know two women called Miranda, and they are both lovely women.
So good connotations all round for me!

My little sister had a doll called Miranda that she used to shorten to Randy....

But the name as it stands is pretty.

Yes. It is up there on the "top 5 names I would give a hypothetical DD" list.

Dogsmom Mon 24-Sep-12 19:16:42

I'm not keen, maybe because the only one I ever knew was the school bully.

Northernlurkerisbackatwork Mon 24-Sep-12 19:19:33

I have one. Nobody ever shortens her name to anything dodgy and it's a great strong name. Mine is 14 and we once met one about 3 years younger but it is rare.

Lovely name, very pretty.

Mintyy Mon 24-Sep-12 19:23:25

Lovely strong name.

I think Sex & The City and then Ms Hart before Shakespeare. Bit frilly for me and the fear of ever being nicknamed Randy might put me off but I can see why people love it and the other potential nns -Mirrie, Mimi, Mandy- are nice.

...as in, "He's going to Read you your Miranda Rights...". Sounds a little on the
"Arresting" side to us.When you say the word "Miranda" over here...Everyone
Jumps.

I like it, one of The Bard's more 'normal' names.

Mintyy Mon 24-Sep-12 20:40:45

I adore the name Viola. Wish I had chosen it for dd now.

Northernlurkerisbackatwork Mon 24-Sep-12 22:52:04

Viola is lovely. If I had a fourth dd I think I'd go for that. No more babies here though! So we'll stick with Miranda, Rosalind and Beatrice (spot the connection - it's not hard!)

emmyloo2 Mon 24-Sep-12 22:54:22

I love it. I went to uni with a Miranda and she went by Mandy. I always thought it was lovely.

No

KitchenandJumble Mon 24-Sep-12 23:12:17

I love it. In addition to the Shakespearean connection, it's also the name of a character in Antonia Forest's novels which makes it more than O.K. in my book. I like Mira as a nickname.

No. It's a terrible name. No one should ever use it. Ever. At all.

(want to use it if I have another girl and don't want it to get popular)

Mmmnotsure Tue 25-Sep-12 00:19:18

The best girl's name, ever. (Sorry, narked.)
