In fact, the name was invented by Shakespeare for a heroine that was in his play “The Tempest” in 1611. However, the name did not become popular until the 20th century as a given name in the English language.

Eventually, the name became so popular that it has a related adjective that can be found in the Oxford English Dictionary. Although the adjective – “Mirandous,” which is a synonym to miraculous – is not used often, it is unique.
