Can anyone recommend any good name meaning sites? I'm getting a million different answers from different sites and I'd like something accurate. SO and I are Cuban and I'm half Russian, supposedly this name is of Russian origin and sometimes it says of Slavic or Spanish origin, which works great for us because it fits in with our culture/easy for family members to pronounce in both languages. Help? :)

nameberry.com is great and tells you meaning and popularity which is great if you don't want something too trendy

It gets down to the root of names better than any other site. Mila is Slavic but its probably popular in Spanish culture because of Camila.

Oh I didn't even think of Camila, I was thinking more along the lines of the word Milagro (miracle).

If we chose it we wouldn't choose a longer form I love the simplicity of it! Thank you for the links though, I appreciate it!
