My name is Mira I'm Lebanese and Muslim (so yes Muslims can name their children Mira) and apparently it has so many meanings that I didn't know about :P Spanish: Look/see I've heard that in Polish it means the moon and also there's the thing about the star. In Arabic Amira means princess but in Lebanon in  the old times they used to also say Mira as princess (I have no idea why). And I've heard from someone that Mira also means wheat. In Hebrew it means bitter/cold hahahah and in Slavic it means peace in Greek it means abundance in Indian it means mythical princess and in Latin it means worthy of admiration/wonderful and that's all what I know so far :P  I hope that helped :)
