Simple question -



Is the name Miri usually short for Miriam, or have you ever heard of someone naming their daughter Miri? I love the name Miri, but Miriam makes me wanna gouge my eyes out with a fork.



I dont care if you dont like Miri, I just need the facts. :)

You could name your daughter Miri if you wanted to.
I only heard it as a nickname for Miriam....mainly in Zack and Miri make a porno (sorry)



But, Miri as a name sounds very cute

I've heard of Miri being more of a NN for Miriam, rather than a first name.
We call my niece Miri but her name is Mireya.

LOL! We call my daughter meercat because she would be lying down and then suddenly pop up and look around :)

BTW Mira means sea or ocean in Sanscrit. It was the name of an Indian Princess.
