    Additional info:

    Mia is the Danish and Swedish pet form of Maria, and is also commonly used as an independent given name. In other languages it is used as a nickname for Maria, and sometimes Amelia, among others. Mia is a possessive form in Italian and Spanish, and in some instances the name may be due to a misunderstanding of the Italian 'cara mia', "my dear", where 'mia' means "my".

    Mia was the 13th most popular girl's name in the US in 2006, and the 14th most popular in the UK in 2007. Its popularity may have been fuelled by the actress Kate Winslet's choice of the name Mia Honey for her daughter, born in 2000.
