question re: Ashkenazi baby naming + Is this frowned on?

Looking for some guidance re: baby names.

My wife is Indian, so we need ideally both sanskrit + hebrew meaning.

We wanted to do the first letter after someone who passed away, and found the name Mira, after My fathers mothers name, Miriam.

However, my (alive, and very nice) mother, is named Mary. Is this the same exact name? Can I not use it?

Just trying to appease all parties and looking for guidance!

Really.. Is Mira, the same name as Mary.. or could it not be?

My wife fell in love with the name and of course, my mother brings it up like a month before she’s due lol.
