    How would you spell this name?

    Hi there.

    I am curious to know how you spell the name May/Mae.

    Which spelling is more popular?

    Which spelling is your favourite?

    Which spelling is more intuitive for you?

    Have you seen either spelling used more?

    May/Mae will be paired with Lucie/Lucy as a second first name.

    All help is appreciated.

    My answer to all these questions is Mae. I’ve only met people with Mae as their middle name though and that is always Mae.

    Mae feels automatic but I kind of like May more, especially is the baby is born in May or if you want to honour somebody born in May.

    I've been debating this myself lately; but prefer May overall - I'd think this would be the traditional spelling here in England, but Mae has also become more popular, especially when hyphenated with another name e.g. Lily-Mae. I've seen both spellings used, but probably, going against what I've been saying, Mae as a first name in my area (London suburbs) seems to be most popular whilst May seems to be a more popular middle name spelling.

    Personally, I prefer Mae! I think this is most popular as a MN, but I'm honestly not sure, lol. When I looked at the charts on https://names.darkgreener.com though, it shows Lucy-Mae as having 5 births, as opposed to Lucy-May with 4. Over the course of the years though, it looks like Lucy-Mae was more popular!

    I prefer Mae personally. May makes me think more of the month when I see it as opposed to Mae, where I automatically know it's someone's name, if that makes sense? I would go with Lucy Mae or Lucie May. Good luck

    I only know one woman named May, and she actually changed her name to Mae because she liked that spelling more.
    I think May is classier but Mae is spunkier, and slightly prefer the latter.
