    Miles seems like a perfectly normal American name. Yet I have not in my life met someone that is named "Miles."

    Maybe after Miles Davis came along, people felt that the Miles mold was broken; the same kinda way people feel about using the name Jesus.

    Though I guess there are still Jazz atheists there who have no qualms about naming their kids after someone they can't possibly live up to.:tongue:

    yeah!! Miles Davis is a cool cool cat!

    The latin meaning for the word miles is military personnel, aka soldier. It's been a while since I took latin, so I'm not too sure about that.

    Is Milo a variation on Miles - or is that a completely different name?

    So would Kilometer be a suitable European name as opposed to Miles? :biggrin:

    Anytime I hear a Miles on TV it always seems to be a kid with cancer that needs money from me. Anyone else have this problem too?

    There seems to be a connection...

    With no respect for political correctness:

    if you are
    - Black
    - A child with cancer
    - Gay
    - Metrosexual
    you can be named Miles.
