    Semiramis/Miramis - Usable?

    I should probably start by saying that I'm Scandinavian myself and have grown up with Astrid Lindgren as a big part of my upbringing, not just as story books, but frequently televised movies and tv series as well as making it into small school plays.

    I'd really like to find a Scandinavian name my partner can agree to, but so far he has turned down everything so now I've started thinking outside the box and looking for more unconventional Scandinavian names and remembered that I really love one of the names in Mio, min Mio (I think It may have been Mio, My son in English) by Astrid Lindgren.

    It's used on a horse, but it IS a female name - Miramis, which is short form of Semiramis. But is this name usable in English? (we live in the UK) - I pronounce it as its written with the S, but not sure if its the same pronunciation in all Scandinavian countries.

    Probably wouldn't use it as firstname, but as middlename. WDYT? Too weird?

    I think Miramis is usable.

    I'm loving the name combo's in your signature. My favorites are Alice Marguerite, Rosalie Arabella Pearl/Rosalie Orianthi Pearl & Violet Isabelle.

    Oh thank you! I love them too - unfortunately my partner doesn't *sigh*. He's so picky and difficult!

    Miramis is usable, but I much prefer it as a middle name. It's feminine, sophisticated but may be too unfamiliar as a first name. I would pair it with lovely classic first name, eg Rosalie Miramis or Violet Mairamis. Semiramis is too complicated for English-speakers IMO. GL!
