Just wanted to get peoples opinions on Mia? Pronounced Mee-a not My-a..

And what middle names might go with it.. Longer names or shorter ones?

Thanks smile

I think it's lovely,polysyllabic middle name would probably work well with it rather than another short name.

Mia Giselle?

Also,would never think to say My-a! Definitely Mee-a!

Everyone will say it's too popular but I think it's lovely.
Middle name probably depends on your surname but make it equally prettysmile.

Love it.

Mia Rosalind?

Thank you.. Was originally DP's suggestion but Im growing to like it smile

I didn't realise it was common.. I've never met a Mia before (adult or child)

Surname is Harvey if that helps!

It is very popular, but don't let that put you off, its popular for a reason- it's a lovely name!

I think a short middle name would work best with Mia and your surname.

Mia's lovely, and I know only nice ones. I think a longer middle name - you need some extra consonants in there. Unless you have a very long surname.

X post.

Friends dd called her baby Mia, as written on birth certificate. Pronounced my -ah! Don't ask me why!
Know three other my-ahs,must be popular

CityGal29 Wed 24-Apr-13 20:59:39

Very popular I know lots of them pronounced mee-ah and my-ah. Spelt Mia or mya or Miia. Mostly aged 3-4 thought it was popular in 2008 really.

NTMummy059 Wed 24-Apr-13 21:11:02

Thank you all! Not to bothered about popularity - my name has been in the top 10 for about 10 years and its never bothered me smile

Any middle name suggestions?

It looks like it's become very popular if you look at the current thread where people are listing the latest babies born.

Not keen. Mia, Maia, Maya - lots of samey sounding variations.

If you go with it then agree a longer middle name would suit.

SavoyCabbage Thu 25-Apr-13 12:40:18

I never know how to pronounce it. Some say me-ya and some same my-ya but spelled the same way. I find it confusing. I have to think "space station" in my head to say it right.

MyTushTingles Thu 25-Apr-13 12:53:59

My friends 14 yo is called Mia, named after Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction.

mrsyattering Thu 25-Apr-13 12:58:45

Ds has 2 in his nursery class and Dd has 2 in P1 class, 2 pronouced May a
and 1 pronunced Mee a. The other is My ya I get the wrong pronounciation every time!
I like it though, I prefere Mee a

Dontbugmemalone Thu 25-Apr-13 13:08:41

I love the name Mia, if DS2 had been a girl, I would have chosen this name smile

hellokitty124 Thu 25-Apr-13 14:22:29

Lots of little Mia/Mya/Maia/Maya/Majas around but if popularity doesn't bother you, then I think it goes nicely with your surname. I've heard both pronunciations - Mia and Mya.
