a coming together
Milan may be a fashionable city in Italy, but it’s also a well-liked girls' name in the US (tied to the place names trend). In the rest of the world, though, it’s a popular boys' name—Colombian pop singer Shakira named her son Milan in 2013. The name (pronounced MEE-lahn) comes from a Sanskrit word that means “a unification or coming together.”
