    I like the look of Mayna best. I like how it they "y" breaks the straight line of the four names together.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I voted for Mayna. It gets you directly to the pronunciation you want and looks the cleanest to me.

    Pretty name! w/ a lot of great thought put into it.

    I think Mayna, Meina, and Maena are the best, just based on how they appear spelling-wise/written down

    I personally would pick Meina. But any of those three would work quite nicely.

    Thanks for the further replies! We have been leaning towards Mayna, so it's nice to see that so many people prefer it that way as well. Meina has been another strong possibility, but I'm thinking their might be some pronunciation issues occasionally that we could avoid with using Mayna.

    Maynah and Meyna are pretty much out of the running now.

    @emilia- It's possible May/Mae could get adopted as a NN, but I have it feeling it probably won't happen. I find that, in general, when names are just two syllables long, I pretty rarely use NN's. But it's certainly a possibility that it's adopted as her NN elsewhere. I definitely prefer Mayna/Meina/Maena to May/Mae though.
