Short and sweet, Mya is a name of many stories. It could simply be a variant of Mia, nickname for Amelia, especially popular in Scandinavia and Holland. Alternatively, it could be a shortening of Miryam: from the Egyptian word mry for “beloved”. Finally, its roots might go back to Maya, all the way to Ancient Greece. Whichever explanation you choose Mya has oodles of cuteness and positive energy.
