    Thoughts on the name Mirage?

    I like using words for names, and I came across the girl name Mirage. It is pronounced mah-rahj, just like the normal word. I think it sounds so pretty and is gorgeous! But others might think it is tacky or ridiculous. I love it, I think it is really unique. Tell me your opinions! Do you love it or hate it?

    Have you been watching The Incredibles lately?

    Nice thought, I adore word names, but it just doesn't sound as...name-like as some word. Maybe you would like Mira or Mirabel?

    Mira is gorgeous, one of my favorites! I think Mirage is more of a guilty pleasure name... I think it is beautiful, but would never use it on my daughter.

    The sound is pretty, but it's sort of like naming your kid Illusion. A mirage usually isn't a good thing; for me, it conjures up images of thirsty explorers drowning in deserts.
    If the meaning is what's drawing it to you, I'd suggest Oasis.
    If it's the sound, Azure has that soft J/G sound (a-juhr).

    I agree, I went straight to The Incredibles movie. It's a nice word, but not my favorite as a name. Mira, though, is awesome.
