    I like May better for a first name and Mae better for a middle name.

    May, definitely. May just seems so much purer and prettier than Mae. Mae is just...I don't know, but it definitely lacks all of the beauty and fresh flowers that pop to mind when I think of the name May. I usually go for the classic spelling anyhoo.
    Just a teenage writer with a fascination for names!

    I have different images for each spelling. May is a month and the name is gentle and sweet. Mae is spunky and sassy (think of actress Mae West). I used to like the classic spelling May more but I've learned to love Mae now.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I like them both equally, but I voted for Mae because it has a certain "je ne sais quoi" about it.
    Ttc a baby brother or sister for Luther Wolf!

    I prefer Mae.
    To me, May looks overused, mainly from being a month name, and Mae looks very cutesy, like a person's name.
