    How do you say this name?

    I have started to love the name Maisie. But I realize I am pronouncing it just like Daisy, so with a z sound. "May zee".
    When I look it up, it always says "may see" like Macey. Which I do not like.

    I imagine I could spell it Maizie, but something about that just looks off.

    How do you guys say this name?
    May-Zee or May-See? Or something entirely different?

    Also, what are some similar names that may be less confusing?

    Rhymes with Daisy. If you wanted the other pronunciation, you'd spell it Macy, like the store.
