Miro comes from Slavic element miru meaning “peace; world” from Proto-Slavic *mȋrъ derived from a Proto-Indo-European source. Miro is a Slovene and Croatian short form of Miroslav, a Slavic male name meaning “peaceful glory”; though it may also be a short form of names ending in -miro such as Edelmiro (the Spanish form of Ancient Germanic Adelmar meaning “noble famous”). Miro is also an Italian surname derived from Mirone, the Italian form of Myron, an Ancient Greek name meaning “myrrh, perfume”. Miro is also a Spanish word, the first person singular of mirar meaning “to look at”, deriving from Latin mīrus (wonderful, marvelous, amazing) which comes from PIE *sméyros (laughing, smiling) from root word *smey- (to laugh, to be glad).
