Meaning

Short, sweet and rather unique, Mia packs a lot of punch into a short name. A favorite amongst many Europeans, especially Dutch and Scandinavians, it is often used as a popular shortening of Maria or Amelia. An extra-meaning, sometimes overlooked is that Mia is the Italian word for mine, as in la mia bambina, meaning “my baby girl”. Moreover, in Greek it means “the one” or “unique”!
