Mira is a feminine given name with varying meanings. In the Romance languages, it is related to the Latin words for "wonder" and "wonderful."[1][2] In South Slavic languages, it means "peace" and is often used as part of a longer name, such as Miroslava (masculine form: Miroslav) or Sławomira (masculine form: Sławomir). In Albanian language, it means "goodness" or "kindness". In Sanskrit, it means "ocean", "sea", "limit" or "boundary"[3] In Hebrew, it is a derivative of Miriam[4][5] or the female equivalent of Meir, meaning light.[6][7]

It is distinct from "Myra" which has a different origin.
