Is it my-ruh or meer-a?

May-uh or my-uh

Arr-ree-uh or uh-rye-uh

Aria. It's just such a lovely sound.

CatalinaCasesolver Thu 18-Feb-21 10:51:14

Mira is the name of my dad's shower. The make rather than a pet name. Maya is best though inevitably there will be pronunciation differences. I would say My-a rather than May-a.

I also have a Mira shower!
I prefer Maya to Aria which just reminds me of operas (and I hate opera!)

Maya, but I’d default to Maya not Mya pronounciation until you corrected me. Just something to bear in mind as others may do the same which could get annoying.

I like Aria best.

Maya - although very popular, it has a long feeling of "history" and is well used internationally so would be my choice of the 3.

Aria - pretty but sadly feels very trendy because of it's rapid rise in use (probably thanks to namesakes on TV).

Mira - nothing wrong with it, but I've never been keen on the sound (strangely I love the similar Mina!)

Maya is my favourite.

Mira is the name of a shower, also sounds like a contraceptive.

Firebird83 Thu 18-Feb-21 21:33:26

Mira. Maya and Aria are overdone.

KirstenBlest Thu 18-Feb-21 21:39:50

Mira - electric shower. My-ra or Me-ra?
Maya - May-a or My-a? Too many similar names popular
Aria - it's just air.

Not keen on any. Mira pron Meera is ok but makes me think of Meerkat.

Aria is the nicest. On my list of names I like if we ever have a DD3 but I fear it’s too similar to DD2’s name.

Luckyelephant1 Thu 18-Feb-21 22:25:35

I love Maya and Aria but they have both become so, so common especially in my culture, particularly Aria.

I've never seen Mira spelt that way, it's usually Meera. I don't mind it but it's a bit meh.

ladygindiva Thu 18-Feb-21 22:27:57

They're all nice but I just love Maya the best, it's beautiful.

CattyBoomBoom Thu 18-Feb-21 22:29:55

People might mispronounce Mira as Myra (as in Myra hindley)

noname55 Thu 18-Feb-21 22:30:00

Aria is far too popular recently and Mira reminds me of the shower.

BiBabbles Thu 18-Feb-21 22:40:50

All are nice names. My vote would go to Mira, mostly because I know a lovely little girl named Mirabelle who often goes by Mira & it's a lovely name that I hear very little around me.

Myal Thu 18-Feb-21 22:43:39

It has a strong meaning, it's a name in many cultures but has beautiful and multiple meanings.
Plus, I chose it for my daughter 💕

AntiHop Thu 18-Feb-21 22:45:27

I love mira

partyatthepalace Thu 18-Feb-21 22:59:20

Aria is quite nice

I like Maya as May-ah, but think My-ah is harsh, but would probably avoid because of the different pronunciations. Mira is just too slight.

Happynewtier Thu 18-Feb-21 23:24:04

Mira = shower

Maya will get pronounced wrong, so I'd go with Mya/Myah

Aria... nice sound, easy to pronounce, but is popular so might bump into a few!

I'd personally go with Aria (prefer it spelt Arya) out of these 3, as the constant mispronunciation of Maya would annoy me, and I don't like Mira as it is a shower/bathroom brand. If you changed the spelling of Maya to Mya, that would be my favourite.

DiscombobulationStation Thu 18-Feb-21 23:27:46

Mira also means 'look' in Spanish

Maya as the front runner absolutely , such a nice name
