I've really been falling in love with Mae names. Mabel and Maisie have both been on my list for a while but Mike dislikes them. I also love Maeve but he's disliked that since forever. I thought of suggesting Maeva, but I don't he'd go for it. But I feel like a Mae name would make an awesome sibling for Archer.
Anyway. I'm still keeping all three on my personal list and searching for middle names for Maisie... I've also got three new Mae names I'm loving and would love opinions on!
Maelie / Maylie
The first is the original spelling. Its a french name, apparently trendy over in france ATM according to Nameberry. It can technically be pronounced as either "may-lee" or "Miley", but I personally much prefer "may-lee". I'm not sure if I prefer the original spelling or not as I feel its got a lot of vowels smooshed together. I guess this names related to saint "Mael" though. Maelie means "princess" though.
Another french name. Meaning "chief" or "prince". Also a variant of saint Mael. I'm not sure if I love it or not, in a sense I do but I'm not sure if it feels choppy.
Maella / Mayella
Yep, another French name variant of saint Mael Who'd of thunk? I want to love it, but I'm also having some reservations. I love Ella names, I love Mae names. Technically Maella would be mah-ella, but I don't love of Mayella looks. I'm unsure on this one.
I've been toying with some middle names for Maisie as well.
Maisie Dahlia (I want to love it as I'm severely crushing on the name Dahlia, but theres too much ee!)
I'm not in love with the Maisie combos though. I'm struggling. I'm opened to suggestions there too!
