Destiny Hope Cyrus was born on November 23, 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville, to Letitia Jean "Tish" Finley Cyrus and country singer Billy Ray Cyrus. She grew up on a 500-acre (2.0 km2) farm in Franklin. Her name was derived from her parents' belief that she would accomplish great things, and she was given the nickname "Smiley", later shortened to "Miley", because she often smiled as an infant. She officially changed her name to Miley Ray Cyrus in 2008; her middle name honors her paternal grandfather, Democratic politician Ronald Ray Cyrus, to whom she remained close until his death in 2006. Against the advice of her father's record company, Cyrus's parents secretly married a year after her birth on December 28, 1993. They had two more children together, son Braison and daughter Noah. Cyrus has elder siblings, Trace and Brandi, and an elder paternal half-brother named Christopher. Christopher grew up with his mother Kristin Luckey in South Carolina. Four of her siblings also eventually entered the entertainment business; Trace as a vocalist and guitarist for the electronic pop band Metro Station, Noah as an actress, Braison as model and Brandi as a guitarist. Cyrus's godmother is entertainer Dolly Parton.
