Hi, We are thinking to name our baby girl Mira or Eva. I found them throughout islamic names websites. But couldn't make sure if they are appropriate for muslim name. Can you advise me about that?

This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

Mira, pronounced [(MEE)t] + [(RU)n] with emphasis on the first syllable, is a Persian word that means "female leader", "female ruler", "queen-like", it is taken from the Arabic word Amira, which is an Islamic name, therefore you can consider Mira an Islamic name as well. Since it has a good meaning you can use it. You can also pronounce it with a long "a" as in Miraa if you like.

For Eva please see: Eva
