Mila is a Slavic name derived from the root “mil” (meaning nice, lovely), that’s why the name is translated as “nice”. In modern times, this name is not only an official given name but also a related name to many female names with the same single root, such as Milena, Milana, Militsa, Milusha, Milada. The name Mila is often used as a hypocoristic of Slavic names with two roots, such as Miloslava, Milolika, Milomira, Milovzora, and others.

The name Mila is often used as a short form of some female names containing the element “mila”, including Ludmila, Tomila, Camilla, Miloslava, Radmila, Dobromila, etc. There are also some male names that have a hypocoristic Mila: Milan, Dobromil, Vsemil, Milyutin, and Miloneg.

The Slavic name Mila is written with one “l” and it shouldn’t be mixed with Milla that is similar to the name Milica used in former Yugoslavian countries, including Croatia and Serbia.

In the USA, where Mila is not considered a short form, it became popular as an official given name. But it’s possible that it is not related to the Slavic origin of the name. In the USA it could appear as a short form of the name Mildred.
