    I am really on the fence on this one. On one hand, I really want you to be able to use this lovely name that you both love. On the other hand, I remember just how pervy junior high boys can be. Will it come up, you can pretty much count on it. Maya has a very exotic feel to me. How about:

    Francesca
    Lucia
    Greta

    Love suggestion of Lydia.

    I would echo what boyandgirl already mentioned. Personally, I would avoid using Maya if my last name were Cox.

    How about:
    Edie or Edith
    Eleanor
    Eloise
    Emilia
    Emmeline
    Evangeline
    Evelyn
    Felicia
    Felicity
    Fiona
    Joanna
    Josephine
    Juliana
    Juliet
    Juniper

    It's not just junior high boys. After high school, I dated a guy whose last name was similar to Cox and he said he wanted to name a daugher Ura or Ima (eye-muh). :shock:

    I definitely would move Maya to the middle spot. She's likely going to be teased for Cox anyway, so better to not add to it imo.

    Thanks to all for your honest feedback. You've basically confirmed what I've been thinking anyway - that Maya (yes, pronounced my-ah) is just too similar to "my" and wouldn't be doing any favors for my daughter. This baby-naming stuff is hard!!
