Alternate spellings: Mylee, Mylie
If you’re looking for names with history, look the other way. As legend has it, Miley Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus) was nicknamed Miley – short for “Smiley” – because she was such a happy kid. When she got big in 2007, her name shot up the charts, from completely unknown to #128 in two years. This name was 100 percent invented by the Cyrus family…but if that doesn’t bother you, it’s a fun and fashionable firstie!
