I would never use this name for my child because i am hispanic and we live in a hispanic culture in the Southwest and it would get pronounce one of three ways depending on who was saying it
M-eye-rah or M-ir-a for those with no Spanish accent
or M-ee-dah for those who are Spanish speaking.
Either way, i don't like it. Its actually a very common Spanish word that means "look at..."

It's very dated without the classical elegance that other dated names like Katharine, Grace, etc...usually have.

Being as I'm half Puerto Rican, I'd have a hard time looking at this name and not thinking it's weird. Plus, we Puerto Ricans are particularly infamous for overusing the word mira in all sorts of ways. That name wouldn't stand a chance within earshot of my family!

I think it sounds pretty, but I wouldn't use it.

I went to Mira Loma High School..... "Lookout Hill" is how it's translated I believe.

Nms. I'd think about looking in a mirror and alot of people would pronounce it that way.
