I'm also struggling to find the difference between Mihr-ra and Mee-ra
For pronunciation purposes:
M(rhyming with ear)-uh Vs. M(rhyming with bee)-ruh?
With that basis in mind, I pronounce it like the first choice. I don't think it comes off as trendy at all, though for what it's worth Mirabelle seems a bit more childish than Mirabel does (which seems more put together and versatile).
The only other name I have heard Mira be a nn for is Samira. I don't personally think Mira stands alone as it's own name and prefer Mirabel to the choices you listed a few posts up.

I loved Elsa before it she was cool I saw her as this mystical, magical, completely unique, baffling and all her own kind of girl. She'd also honour my grandmother and great-grandmother from Deutschland.
Ronan will be my future son's name for the sake of spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous. And in memory of Ronan Sean Thompson.

We have a Slavic last name (my husband is half Croatian), and that's partly why we picked Mira, as it's a Common Slavic nn. We actually considered Mirjana (close, obviously to Miriana, but my husband's sister's name is Jana so we liked the "j" spelling) but ultimately decided that Mira is lovely on its own.
