    I pronounce it like May-Ah and no I don’t personally think its overused, I’ve only ever met one and she’s a super sweet little girl.

    I say My-uh, and yes, I do find it overused and a bit dated.

    I say my-uh although I like both pronunciations. It’s a good name in my opinion, pretty without being frilly, and whilst it certainly isn’t uncommon I don’t think it’s overused. I only know two myself, a baby and a twenty something, and having just watched the new season of Stranger Things it makes me think of Maya Hawke, Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman’s daughter. Anyway, it’s a name I’ve been liking more and more of late.

    I had always said May-uh until pop culture got me saying My-uh more often. I still prefer this to be May-uh and Miah/Myah to be used for the other pronounciation.

    I wouldn't say its overused.

    I'd say it My-uh. A couple of years ago, there were lots of little Mayas about but I haven't met any recently

    My-uh. And while it does seem like a 90's name to me, I don't think it is overused at all.

    My-uh. Not overused or dated in my opinion. A sweet and strong name, with literary connections. Never met one.

    Maya is popular, but popular for a reason! I wouldn't let that stop you from using her if you really loved her. I do prefer the Maia spelling myself since it looks cleaner, but either way, the name is gorgeous. I'd pronounce it as "my-uh".
