Miley Origin and Meaning

The name Miley is a girl's name of American origin.

One-time overnight success name, thanks to Hannah Montana actress and singer Miley Cyrus, Miley fell just as quickly from her peak of Number 127 in 2008 as the star entered her rebellious era.

Now Miley seems to be on a comeback — both the artist and the name — as Miley rose over 250 places in 2023.

For Miley Cyrus, Miley was a childhood nickname (because she was so smiley); Destiny was her given name, although she legally changed it to Miley in 2008.
