First Name Directory - Starting with M

This site is dedicated to maintaining a database of first names from all over the world. We are still working to add all meanings to the names and sort them by gender, ethic and other behavior.

Most names come from the European and Arab area, especially italian, spanish, french and german firstnames.

Marija is a feminine given name, a variation of the name Maria, which was in turn a Latin form of the Greek names Μαριαμ, or Mariam, and Μαρια, or Maria, found in the New Testament. It is a name predominantly in Croatia, Lithuanian, Macedonia, Serbia, Slovenia, among others. Depending on phonological rules concerning consecutive vowels or the use of the palatal approximant, “Mary” in these languages is Marija if consecutive vowels are disallowed and otherwise Maria. Marija is the most common female name in Croatia. The male equivalents are Marijan, Marijo, Mario.
Mirna (Croatian/Mirna Serbian/Мирна) is a female name common among Croats and Serbs. Derived from the Slavic element mir, Mirna means "peaceful." It is often confused with the name 'Myrna' (/myrrhna/), which is not Slavic in origin, but Celtic and means "beloved", also "tender".
Milka is a biblical female given name. In many languages such as German, French, and Croatian, Milka is a common transliteration of the Hebrew name מִלְכָּה (meaning "queen" or "ruler"), which is usually transliterated to English as Milcah. In the Bible, Milcah was Abraham's brother's wife and the grandmother of Rebecca (Gen. 24:15.). Milcah is also the name of one of the daughters of Zelophehad (Num. 26:33).

In the data base are, apart from modern and traditional first names also American, Arab, Germans, English, French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Dutch, Northern, Russian, Scandinavian, Slavian, Spanish, and Swedish first names.
