What are your thoughts on the name Majken?
I actually went to school with a girl who had this name and it suddenly just popped into my head again. It was pronounced "My-ken" though being that it's Scandinavian we could have all been totally mispronouncing it. I always remember though thinking it was a cool name and why couldn't I have a name like that instead of the all unique Jessica (there were about 5 in my class alone). It's definitely a possibility I may run it past my husband when he gets home. Thoughts?Mummy to

I also went to middle and high school with a Majken. it was pronounced my-ken as you mentioned. I always wanted her name. She was very pretty and cute. I am an Ashley, so, I wanted to go from boring and typical to unusual even if it was spelled oddly.
I like it. I would spell it differently if I was going to use it. Miken most likely.

It sort of reminds me of Lichen.
It's quite pretty, though.★ close to my heart ★ Billie Cordelia - Jemima Eilidh - May Margaret - Estella Agnes - Jessamine Martha

I think if your gut instinct goes back to it time and again, use it. I have the name Winter. People pronounced it Win-Ner not Win-Ter. My husband's name is Kelvin, and people call him Cal-ven, completely missing the spelling even. So, spelling and phonetics would be the least of my concerns. As long as you find a great mn, your husband likes it, and it pairs well with your last.....I think you should be fine, best of Luck!Tcc
