Miranda

worthy of admiration
ORIGIN: Latin
POPULARITY: 578
The film and TV industries have a thing for Miranda, often giving the name to characters who are shrewd (Miranda Priestly in “The Devil Wears Prada”) or smart (Miranda Hobbes in “Sex and the City”). And they’re on point: In Latin, the name means “worthy of admiration.” The name was devised by Shakespeare for the heroine in “The Tempest.” Although the name was created in the 17th century, it didn’t start making it onto birth certificates until three centuries later.
