Mya is a short name with a long list of variations and roots, including Maia (Greek), Miriam (biblical), Mariam (Arabic) and Ria (German). The Greek and English translation of Mya (pronounced MY-a) is “great one” or “mother.” Expectant parents embraced the unusual spelling of Mya for a girls' name around 1998, which is not coincidentally when the American singer Mya started getting noticed and became a Grammy-winning, platinum-selling R&B success the next year.
