ORIGIN:Scandinavian
POPULARITY:15
This all-star name is chic and sporty with a dose of spunky girl power. In Spanish and Italian, Mia means “my” or “mine,” but it is also the Scandinavian and German pet form of Maria. Actress Mia Farrow introduced the name to moviegoers in the 1960s, but soccer icon Mia Hamm really kicked it to the next level. Although Anne Hathaway's character in The Princess Diaries and British musician M.I.A. also helped, and now this rockin' baby name shows little sign of slowing down.

The daughter of Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall, a former professional rugby player, Mia Tindall was born in Gloucester on January 17, 2014. Like her cousins Savannah and Isla Phillips, Mia has a nontraditional name that wasn't passed down from British ancestors. (The name Mia is a shortened form of Maria, which means “mine.”) Breaking tradition never looked so cool.
