I would like to name my daughter Maira but I am confuse because in this website you mentioned the meaning is light fast mowing or bringer of food but in the other website is the meaning is moon or bitter… certainly I don’t want people to confuse her with something bitter. What is actually the correct meaning and if the meaning is different is it still good?

    I have named newly born girl as Maira. Really a pleasing name. Everyone is appreciated this name. Hope its meaning is good. I wanted a name starting with ‘M’ cose am Mukarram. ..
