Miley Cyrus was not born Miley Cyrus. During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” with his daughter, Billy Ray Cyrus explained how he and his wife, Tish Cyrus, gave Miley the name Destiny Hope Cyrus and had been planning on calling her that the whole time were expecting. “Before she was born, I just felt like it was her destiny to bring hope into the world,” the “Achy Breaky Heart” hitmaker said. However, once she was welcomed into their lives, they gave her the nickname “Smiley” because she was a happy child. Eventually, Smiley evolved into Miley.
