Miles, Myles

Name Nerds main

FOR REAL: Miles was brought to England by the Normans. Since most Norman names are Germanic in origin, Miles possibly comes from the German name Milo, which may be derived from a Slavic element meaning "gracious." Miles also may be a form of Michael, altered to reflect the Latin word miles, meaning "soldier" (probably as a nod to the Archangel Michael who was said to be a warrior).
