The attraction of this name is that it sounds a bit like Cooper.

I love the name Miro! In New Zealand, it’s the name for a species of conifer tree. However, there are a number of similar words used throughout Indigenous languages. This means “eggshell” in the Kaurna language of South Australia. It was also said to mean “burning logs”, from the word dooral dooral, but this belief only dates from the 1940s, and is taken from the Wiradjuri language.
