Miley was originally called Destiny Hope Cyrus because Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus both thought her destiny was to bring hope. But as she grew up she smiled so much that people called her smiley. They shortened this to Miley. She is called Miley Ray because her dads middle name is Ray also.

Yes she did. She was born with the name Destiny Hope Cyrus and also they would call her "Smiley-Miley" but she did change her name to Miley Ray Cyrus because she didn't like her other name. Hope this is an helpful answer. In may 2008 Miley Cyrus officially became Miley Ray Cyrus.
