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 2015, this name came in at Number 586 in the US Top 1000; it's also now in the Top 100 in Sweden and Germany. Mira can also be a short form of Miryam or Miranda.
