    If you don’t know anything beyond the movies then I don’t think it would be weird to name her Mara Jade. With me- I was already influenced by the name and wouldn’t name my daughter that (I would have gotten “obsessed much?”)

    She was a very strong character and had a following of her own. But now- those stories mean nothing and my whole SW book collection is worthless (can you hear the bitterness?). 

    She eventually married Luke Skywalker in the books/comics  and they had a son. I can’t say how much I loved her as a character- even more than the actual SW characters like Leia and Padme. But that is thanks to some wonderful writers. 

    Sorry for going off tangent!

    I’m biased because if we have a girl at some point we have decided on Mila! They are all pretty names, pick what you like the best don’t worry if it’s popular or not. 🙂

    I know a 15 year old named madelyn and a 10 year old named maya.  aside from that, those names are entirely unique to me!  🙂

    How are you pronouncing Mila? I like it as Meela, not so much Myla or Miller. Whichever you pick she’ll probably have to constantly correct people (not necessarily a big deal though, I’m always having to tell people how to say my name and it’s fine). I’d say Mara is the least common, it makes me think of a celtic queen!

    I vote Mara (Mar-uh). It’s my Moms name and Amara (uh-mar-uh) is my daughters middle name though so I’m partial. <3

    I had my son in 2015 and knew SO MANY pregnant women who were naming Mila, Emilia or Amelia (nn Mila) at least 4. So I vote Maya or Mara.
