do you? do you think miley cyrus (destiny was her birth name) ruined them?

wt do you like aboout the name?
does anyoen no wt the name miley means?


[name]Miley[/name] is a variation of a Hebrew name meaning “virtuous woman”. One of my daughters was named [name]Destiny[/name]. She died at birth. Most people here at nameberry and elsewhere consider it “trashy, stripperish-sounding” at worst and “too trendy” at best. However, I loved it when I picked it for her and I still love it just as much almost 9 years later. I don’t think [name]Miley[/name] has ruined either [name]Miley[/name] or [name]Destiny[/name] for good. She is having her moment in the sun, but all things come to an end eventually. She will be replaced by some other young star soon enough I suppose.

I was under the impression that [name]Miley[/name] was an invented name, but it’s interesting to know it may have Hebrew roots!

[name]Pam[/name] and [name]Linda[/name] call it a “Modern Invented Name,” and here’s what they wrote: “This year’s overnight success name, thanks to [name]Hannah[/name] [name]Montana[/name] actress and singer [name]Miley[/name] [name]Cyrus[/name]. [name]Miley[/name] was a childhood nickname (because she was so smiley); [name]Destiny[/name] is her real name.”

I remember hearing that her dad shortened her “Smiley” nickname to “[name]Miley[/name].”

Unie, I’m so sorry about your baby girl… :frowning:

Take care!

Yes [name]Destiny[/name] is a beautiful name , My daughter is 11 years old and her name is [name]Destiny[/name] and when people meet her they say wow she really fit’s her name , she very generous,kind hearted and always smiley like nothing can get her down she very popular and friendly as well, She very strong minded a leader not a follower know what she want’s.

Thank you [name]Jill[/name]. One of my baby name books identifies [name]Miley[/name] as a variant of Mili which is supposed to be Hebrew. Can anyone else verify this.

I dislike both [name]Miley[/name] and [name]Destiny[/name]. I do think that [name]Destiny[/name] is trendy, (no offense to anyone!) but the creative spellings are the worst. I believe I’m related to a [name]Destiny[/name] that’s name is spelt awfully, though I can’t remember it now…
[name]Miley[/name] is far too [name]Miley[/name] [name]Cyrus[/name] for me; but I doubt that connection will last. [name]Miley[/name] is very trendy in my opinion, and I just don’t find it very attractive in the first place. Good luck! (:

Forget these names and if you like [name]Miley[/name] as a nn use [name]Emilia[/name] as her formal name.

im so sorry. destiny is a lovly name. im not to seen at miley at the moment. but sitll. thnx all!
