In kashmiri language miya (meey) is related to collection of custom duty in the form of lagaan. The people in those times were fleeing on seeing meey in their village. This meey changed into Miya.

Auri says I'm married into a wonderful Kashmiri family called Miya (of Rainawari). Any more info about the origins of this surname would be great! I'm told this was a title, whilst the original surname is Kaul.
