Origin and Meaning

1) Fantasy name invented by Astrid Lindgren for her book Mio, min Mio (1954); no meaning is given in the book. The name of the book character Mio in the real world is Bo Vilhelm Olsson (Bosse). [1]

Nevertheless, a popular but very implausibel guess for its origin an meaning is a relation to the Italian word mio = 'my, mine', but in this case the book's title would not make sense('mine, my mine') [2]

These two other derivation theories are unrelated to the Nordic fantasy name as well:

2) Croatian pet name, short form of names beginning with Mio-, a Croatian form of the name element MIL [3] [1]

3) Male form of Mia [2]
