How one come to the conclusion that Mia is a male or female ? Its is a site accessed by people world over. In my country some names are found to be used by male as well as female. I feel this kind of questions should be avoided

In my country some names are found to be used by male as well as female, but not all.

We know Mia is a girls name because a man would not use it.

If you want to learn English, please don't expect us to change the rules, just because you don't understand or agree with them!
