Have you met many Maya's?

I have met a couple, but I really like the name anyway.

And which spelling do you like best?


Thanks in advance for your input. But PLEASE, I'm not asking your opinion whether you like the name or not..... because I do.

  • I have not met many but I love the name. There is another spelling for it from the netherlands. It's Maija. Pronounced the same way as maya.

  • I do know a Maya, I think it's a beautiful name. I would go with the spelling "Maya" because it sounds like it's spelled, that way she won't have to correct people all the time ;)

  • Yes, quite a few- my dh's family is Indian and it's a common Sanskrit name (it means 'illusion'), and then I have three friends with babies named Maya. Two spell it 'Maya' (this is the way I'm most familiar with because it's the Sanskrit spelling) and one spellia it Miah.

  • I grew up having a close friend named Maya. Since that time I can't say that I've run into another, how strange!
