Comments and insights on the name Maiya: | Edit

My brother and his wife were looking for a spelling for the name Maya, Mia, Maija... that was the least likely to be mispronounced. They especially did not want her called MAY-yuh or MEE-yuh.
This was what we came up with.

Maiya is the middle name we have picked out for our baby if we have a girl, with Aeris as the first name.
