a girl i work with just had her baby on halloween, they named her Maeve Meade (Mave mead). they thought it was cute because Maeve means she who intoxicates and Meade well its honey wine(or means meadow). so they named their kid after the husbands favorite drink. they think its funny because the first time her husband had mead he "chugged" it and had to hold onto my coworker.....how is that funny? especially funny enough to name your kid after....its not...its pretty disgusting honestly.

Maeve is an EXCELLENT name.  It was on our list and if we ever had another girl, she would have been named Maebh (which is a more traditional spelling of it).

However, not so great with Meade, lol. But *shrugs* it's in the middle.  Middle names aren't as big a deal as first names.

I think Maeve/Maeven is a gorgeous name.

99% of the population isn't going to know what the first name means even if they know what Mead is.

I like the first name
And how often does anyone use their middle name?
People are named after all kinds of things
