New one that came to me last night.

Any thoughts? smile

I'm currently snuggled up on the sofa with my 8 day old Mia Elizabeth, so slightly biased!

Enasharpleshairnet Sun 29-Nov-15 18:37:51

It's pretty.

I know quite a few around 10 years old. There might be a question is it said Mee-a or My-a. I would suppose Mee-a as in Mia Farrow.

Personally I like it; I know a very lovely girl with the name.

There is also a Welsh name Nia.

Pretty but dull and very popular. Saying that, the popular names are popular because they are liked.

GothJoose Sun 29-Nov-15 18:48:07

It's my favourite popular name. Definitely a contender if I ever have another dd

I used to work with someone in Australia who was upset Lleyton Hewitt and his wife called their daughter Mia because it got super popular.

Is it popular confused I don't know any at all !

SoWhite Sun 29-Nov-15 18:54:06

It was 13th most popular in 2014.

SoWhite Sun 29-Nov-15 18:55:05

7th most popular in 2012.

Very plain and a bit 'meh' and insubstantial.

celtictoast Sun 29-Nov-15 19:13:25

Would you pronounce it Mee-a or My-a? If it's Mya I'd spell it that way so people don't say Mee-a.

celtictoast Sun 29-Nov-15 19:13:27

Or Maya (but then would people think it was May-a?)

thorshammer Sun 29-Nov-15 19:14:25

No it would definitely be Mee-a

angelazul Sun 29-Nov-15 19:16:11

We have 2 nieces called Mia (Mee-a), my 7 yo niece, & dh's 18 yo niece. The younger one gets called My-a quite a bit, much to my ds's annoyance

Donge13 Sun 29-Nov-15 19:16:16

We have 16 Mia's at the school I work at,all of varying ages but I still like it

thorshammer Sun 29-Nov-15 19:17:50

Oft that's it out the window then . Too popular. Thanks for the replies everyone smile

IoraRua Mon 30-Nov-15 21:37:54

Oh man, lots of these in the school I work in. Ditto Tia/Leah. Lots of -ia names in general and they all blend together tbh. I wouldn't go for it.

Skiingmaniac Mon 30-Nov-15 21:40:37

What about Thea.....I've always liked it

Gutterflower Mon 30-Nov-15 21:49:57

Shitwithsugaron I have a Mia Elizabeth too but mines 8 years old. Obviously biased but I love the name and it's one which hasn't been overused in the last few years

Gutterflower Mon 30-Nov-15 21:52:28

Hmmm...Mine is the only Mia in her year group, 2007 must not have been a popular year for Mia's where I live.

squoosh Tue 01-Dec-15 11:53:37

I know a LOT of little Mias.

HopefulAnxiety Tue 01-Dec-15 12:07:37

What about May/Martha/Mara? Meredith? Marisa/Marissa?

Nina/Serena/Selena have similar sounds but less common.

MrsGentlyBenevolent Tue 01-Dec-15 15:19:22

I like it, though prefer Nia (Knee-a) myself. I always presume Mia is Mee-a not Mai-a - always thought the latter was spelt Maya. There's also Thea or Rhea, which are obviously similar but less popular.
