Girl #7: Mia
It is tempting to talk about Mamma Mia in relation to the seventh most popular girls’ name, but that would distract from what a genuinely pretty name it is. Mia is loveliness all wrapped up in three simple letters. It is of Italian and Scandinavian origin. It can be the short form of “Maria” and can mean “mine” or “bitter,” per Name Berry. Clearly the bitter part has not put people off. Mia Farrow can probably be credited for the name’s spike in popularity. And remember that bitter can be good. Think about citrus, green tea, and cranberries.
