Origin of the name MIRÈIO.
Etymology of the name MIRÈIO.
Meaning of the baby name MIRÈIO.

  

MIRÈIO.  French Provençal form of old Occitan Mirèlha (q.v.), meaning "admirable."  Modern French Mireille (q.v.).  Italian MirellaMirčio is an old romantic poem by Frederi Mistral, about the lovers Mirčio and Vincen.

... The fact that Mistral's poetry is written in Provencal must necessarily exclude most English readers from reading him in the original; but even those who know no language but their own have the opportunity of reading a translation of "Mirèio," by Mr. H. Crichton, published by Kegan Paul; another in prose, by Mr. G. H. Grant, issued at Avignon; and a third, in verse, published by Roberts Bros., Boston, by Miss Harriet Waters Preston, who has made a special study of the Troubadours, old and new, and of Mistral in particular... (Littell's Living Age, v.168, 1886)
