I'm in love with this name!

If we ever have a girl we want to name her Maebe (pronounced 'maybe').

Like it or not?

Family hates it, we love it.

  • Aw I think it's cute and creative. It doesn't matter what your family likes as long as you like it :)

  • I think it is cute for a nickname. Maybe name her Mae Beatrice, but not as her real legal name.

  • ARmom, I'm not even pregnant yet. We are trying though. So we still have forever and trust me, you all would die at the other name too! LOL!

  • I wonder if you've thought about what it's like to have a name that you have to spell to everyone you meet for decades. Having your name routinely mispronouced and being addressed regularly by the wrong gender.

    It's less fun than you'd think, at least according to the Kahmulas, Kymberleighs and Xris's I've known --who all changed their names to easy, simple names like Sue, Bob and Pam at the earliest possible moment as adults.

    This spelling is similar to the Gaelic name Maeve, which is not pronounced may-vee, but just mave. It's going to be mis-spelled by a lot of people who think it's a typo, with b and v so close together....

    Of course, I plan to name my next cat Maybe.

  • Linda, I do know what it is like to have to spell my name to absolutely everone and correct them on how to pronounce my first and last name. Thanks for the concern though. :)
