This name owes its present life to actress Sorvino. Mira and Mirra have an arty aura. Mira is a true cross-cultural choice, with the literal meaning of "look" in Spanish, a peaceful meaning in several Eastern European languages, a well-used name in Arabic cultures meaning queen-like or a female ruler, and a nature name in Sanksrit. In 2014, this name came in at Number 613 in the US Top 1000; it was even more popular in England and Wales, coming in at Number 476. Mira can also be a short form of Miryam or Miranda.
