  • poll: Is the name Mia too similar to Meka?!

    Yes, it is too similar and it should be changed to Lilyana Eva.

    No, I think it's fine!

    Yes, it is too similar but not feeling Lilyana Eva!

    @Danielle81:  I don’t think they’re similar enough, and if it were me I’d be dissapointed to let the name go after having it for so long, and Mia is lovely.

    I don’t think that Mia is too close to Meka. I think you will regret it if you don’t name her that just because it sounds like your cats name which it doesn’t. I’m sure he and your parents will forget all about it once she is born ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think it’s fine, they aren’t all that similar. And as for DH calling the baby Meka by accident, that’s an honest mistake. He’s being saying the cat’s name much longer than the baby.

    My friend recently had a baby which she named Connor, but she said for 3-4 days she kept accidentally calling him Cooper and she wasn’t sure if she should change his name. It passed and she stuck with Connor, sometimes we just have brain farts.

    If you love the name stick with it!

    I don’t think they’re too similar and you really need to pick a baby name that you’re going to love for the rest of your lives.

    I think it’s a win-win situation. Cat and baby will both respond to similar names.

    And it’s too good of a name to pass up. Keep it!

    I don’t think they are too similar. But just to check, I’m assuming the are pronounced MEE-uh and MEE-kah? 

    If you did want a similar name that was a little more differentiated from Meka, you could go with Maya (Like, MI-uh). That’s one of my favorites.

    i think Mia is cute and is fine. And i hate to say it, but your cat wont be around forever. Your child will therefor the names will only be comparable for a few more years, so name your kid what you want

    My parents have a cat named Emma and that was their reasoning for us not liking the name Emma when we were pregnant (later found it was a boy and didn’t have to worry about girl names). They also have had cats named Charlotte, Frida, and Jean.. normal pretty girl names, if I liked any of those names it wouldn’t have stopped me from using them either. It was annoying though when they’d mention it.

    I don’t think it’s too similar, though personally I prefer Lilyana to Mia.  Mia has become very common, but if that doesn’t bother you, go with the name you love!
