Personal experiences with the name Mia: | Edit

I called my girl Mia in 2007. Short, sweet and enigmatic and I had only ever heard it twice before ( 1. a likeable kid in year 12 at high school and 2. Mia Farrow, who had really good hair). I can't have been the the only Mum feeling wildly successful about my rare choice that year because fast forward to 2019 and there are 4 other brillantly unusual Mia's on her class role. None like her though ;)
