Mija is a short but sweet name for girls. Depending on how one looks at it, this moniker can take many forms. In Spanish, for instance, it literally means “my daughter,” and is used as an endearment to address women like “dear” or “honey.” On the other hand, some people say that Mija means “drop of the sea,” “bitter,” or “beloved.” Put a hyphenate in between, and Mi-ja instantly becomes a Korean name whose meaning is predicated on the hanja used to write each syllable. With a world of meanings lying at its feet, baby can choose the one that they like the most instead of an imposition. Surely then, freedom, creativity, and self-expression are bound to follow suit.
