Boy name that sounds like "Mirko"?
I am in love with this name--kind of. We've been having a really tough time coming up with name ideas for our first child, and out of nowhere my husband suggested Mirko, after a friend he had back in Italy. I wasn't into it at first, but it's really grown on me! I love that it's unique (but not made-up), adorable for a baby/ little boy, and works just as well on a grown man.
BUT: It's short for Miroslav. And we're not Slavic. Dad is off-the-boat Italian and I'm an English/ Irish/ American alloy. I'd really like our son's name to in some way represent one of these heritages.
SO: I'm looking for suggestions of other names that sound like Mirko. Marco is the obvious Italian name, but it's *so* popular. I'm not obsessed with my child being the only one in the world with his name, but I would like it to be something more unique or memorable.
I would be so grateful for any suggestions you guys can come up with. This baby naming thing is hard!
