Etymology & Historical Origin - Miley

The name Miley is essentially an American invention, inspired by pop-phenomenon Miley Ray Cyrus (who was actually born Destiny Hope Cyrus). Destiny was given the nickname “Miley” by her parents because she was so “smiley”. The name could also be considered a feminine form of the male name Miles (which in Latin means ‘soldier’). In any case, the name has only been in use in the United States for a few years.

Popularity of the Name Miley

The name Miley first appeared on the U.S. naming charts in 2007, one year after the debut of Hannah Montana, a Disney channel sitcom which was the vehicle for Miley Cyrus’s stardom. As a result of the show’s super-success, the name Miley entered the popularity charts at an unprecedented and impressive position of #280. The next year, Miley jumped another 150 positions on the charts and almost made it to the Top 100. However, in the past couple of years, the name appears to be losing its luster as it fell off the Top 200 list in 2010. Miley is an example of a name influenced by pop culture and gained fast and furious success in a very short time span. As such, these types of trends tend to languish as fast as they appeared. Miley is a “cutesy” name. Like Bailey, Miley is also a popular dog name. Something to consider before giving your child this fleeting moniker.

    Miles To Go (Miley Cyrus) - “There are multiple sides to all of us. Who we are and who we might be if we follow our dreams.” - Miley Cyrus. Three years ago, Miley Cyrus was a virtual unknown. Her life in rural Tennessee was filled with family, friends, school, cheerleading, and the daily tasks of living on a farm. And then came a little show called Hannah Montana. Almost overnight, Miley would rocket to superstardom, becoming a television and singing phenomenon. Quiet days were replaced with sold-out concerts, television appearances, and magazine shoots. But through it all, Miley has remained close to her family and friends and has stayed connected to the Southern roots that made her so strong. In Miles to Go, Miley offers an honest, humorous, and often touching story of one girl's coming-of-age--from private moments with her pappy to off-roading with her dad, Billy Ray, to her run-ins with mean girls. Miley talks about suffering through drama and heartbreak and coming out the other end unscathed (relatively). And now for the first time, she will discuss it all—the milestones still left to reach (driver’s license! voting!), dreams to live out (travel to Asia! find true love!), and the lessons to be learned (remembering to enjoy every moment!). This is a truly unique look inside the world of one of today’s biggest and brightest stars as she tackles looking back and moving forward. Recommended for ages 9-12.

    Miley Cyrus: A Biography (Kimberly Dillon Summers) - Disney's hit television show, Hannah Montana, tells the story of a young woman trying to balance her career as a super-celebrity pop star with wanting to live the life of a normal teenager. The show's overwhelming success presents many of the same challenges to its star, Miley Cyrus. Recommended for ages young adult.
