Meaning:Proud chief
If the Disney channel raised you, you probably have a strong opinion about this beautiful gender-neutral name of Gaelic origin. Derived from the Irish surname Ó Maolmhuaidh, Miley most commonly translates to "proud chief." Miley is also the name of the outrageously famous singer and songwriter Miley Cyrus. But of course, you met her first on the American sitcom Hannah Montana as a teenage girl living a double life as a pop singer. Although it wasn't the name given at birth, Miley was known for being super smiley on set, and the clever nickname quickly stuck. Whether you're a fan or not, baby can still have the incredible reminder to be a powerful rolemodel for many. There are also some adorable variations to this one, such as Milee, Mileigh, and Mylee.
