Thread: Maya or Maia?

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.Azula Rosemary

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.

I loved Elsa before it she was cool I saw her as this mystical, magical, completely unique, baffling and all her own kind of girl. She'd also honour my grandmother and great-grandmother from Deutschland.
Ronan will be my future son's name for the sake of spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous. And in memory of Ronan Sean Thompson.
