I pronounce them the same. Mah-Ya. I prefer the Maia spelling, though they are both pretty. What I DISLIKE is spelling it Mia and expecting THAT to be pronounced the same way. I always assume Mia should be pronounced like Mee-Ya.
I think if someone told me their name was Mah-Ya and I had to guess how to spell it I would guess it was spelled Maia... but maybe that's just due to the french influence here in Canada or something?
Either way, very pretty choice.New username is @ truenature

I had never heard of the name Maya/Maia until recently teaching at a school and this beautiful little girl was named Maya. Her name was spelt Maya so I pronounced it as May-a, but she told me it was pronounced as MY-A. I prefer the pronunciation of My-a. It's prettier. Ever since discovering this name, I love it. Its on my list now. I like the way Maia looks though. You would pronounce Kai as KY so I think Maia would be pronounced correctly most of the time. So I'm probably going to go with Maia from now on.
