Maya or Maia?
I've loved the name Maya since my very first name-list in the 4th grade. I love the sound of it, and I love it's simplicity.
BUT, I've recently discovered the spelling Maia. Still pronounced My-ah but I really like how it looks written out, and I love the connection to mythology (I'm a mythology nerd). But, I'm afraid it might be mispronounced or mistaken as a yewneek spelling of Maya, rather than a mythological and fairly well-used name.
So: which spelling do you prefer? Would it be mispronounced? Would people think I'm trying to be yewneek?
