  • Yes, there are:
    - mimo (noun) is the word for the person who mimes (a mime). It's the same for men and women; the word mima doesn't exist in Spanish.
    - mímica-mímico is like mimic in English.
    - mimetizar (verb) is the translation for 'to mime' (the verb). The word imitar has a similar meaning to mimetizar.
    - mimar isn't very related to the others words. Mimar (verb) means several things in English: 'to spoil', 'to fuss over' or 'to flatter'.
