    Tanaya could be a nice compromise. It means "daughter" or "child of mine" and rhymes with Maya.

    Other suggestions:
    Aditi
    Aishwarya
    Shalini
    Safia
    Ramani
    Sunayana
    Ananda
    Latika
    Lalita
    Parvati
    Sarala
    Jasminder
    Nivedhini

    Maya and Mira are DEFINITELY too close, but not even due to cutesyness -- imagine how many times you'll misspeak with those! "Mira! Agh, I mean Maya!"

    Here's a list of feminine Indian names:

    My favorites:

    Aditi
    Arya (which has been growing in popularity due to Game of Thrones)
    Avani
    Devi / Devika
    Esha
    Indira
    Kala, Kamala (though this has a Battlestar Galactica association you may want to check on if you're interested)
    ---- I think Kamala has some good nickname possibilities, including a stretch to Maya if you really want it
    Madhuri
    Malati
    Nalini
    Nitya
    Pallavi (this is one of my personal favorites)
    Parvati
    Priya
    Sarala
    Sati
    Shanti
    Sitara

    Thank you all - I like a lot of these but some have been already rejected by my husband (Jaya, Arya, etc), but i will pass these on!

    What does hubby mean by "long"? Just longer than Mira? Although I think my name- Tara- is wonderful (when pronounced properly) it may be too short. There's Tarala, Tarani, and Tarika, the nn could be Tara.
    I'm not Indian but since name is, I have an Indian-inspired baby name list (that's why I love Lotus)
    Aaliya
    Kemaya
    Chanda/Chandra
    Mohana
    Zahra
    Ashima
    Sonali
    Malaya
    Salima
    Jameela
    Lakhi- love this name because I'm not brave enough to name my kid Lucky
    Ayesha
    Fatima

    Fox * Shea * Jade * Azure * Eden * Greer * Arden
    Lotus * Tallulah * Noor * Jasper * Blaise * Linden
