All boy even with the odd spelling! Maisie or Macy would be nice.

Sorry but I dont like it for a girl... or a boy actually, but definately not for a girl...

I think it’s fine. It’s mostly a boy’s name, BUT the way you spelled it makes it girly. Maesyn Louise sounds best.

I really don’t like it at all, sorry. If you absolutely live it, at least spell it correctly. "Yoo-neek" spellings don’t make a name any more feminine or unique; it’s still exactly the same name.

I actually don’t mind Mason on a girl, but this spelling just looks like you are trying too hard to make the boy name feminine and girly. If you want a different spelling, I’ve seen Maison, I think it looks nicer than Maesyn. Beautiful middle names!

Up to you! I think it looks pretty, personally don’t like how Mason or Maesyn sound. I you like it, go for it!

I think it’s fine because Mae is a girls name. Mae + Syn is Maesyn. Also, Madison was once all it’s girl. So what is the big deal if she uses the name Maesyn on a girl?

Mason is currently #4 on the SSA popular name list for boys. Use it if you love it, but she will likely have boys in her class with the name.

I agree with the fifth poster. If you’re going to use it, at least spell it Mason. And to the eighth poster, that’s the worst use of logic ever. Personally, I wouldn’t use it because it’s so popular now that she’d be known by her last initial all the way through school. I’d keep looking.

Yes she’ll have boys in her class w/the name, so if that bothers you don’t use it.

But I don’t think my logic is bad. Mae really is a girl’s name. And they are just adding Syn to the end. What if they added Lyn to the end? Then it would be more feminine.

I guess I’m open to all kinds of names because names have evolved since the beginning of time. Names that were once ALL boy are now mostly girl names. I wouldn’t be shocked if Maesyn becomes a popular girl name in the next 20 years or so. Right now if you use it, she’d be one of the only girls with the name. It’s up to the poster to decide...if you don’t mind your daughter sharing a name with many boys use it.

I’m a second grade school teacher and have had at least 10 little girls over the years named Maesyn. It is not unusual where I come from, not even the spelling. I don’t think a think a thing of it because I’ve had as many girls with name as boys. To me it’s like the name Taylor, it can be used for either gender.

The reason I’m open to is because once all male names like Madison, Allison, Ellison etc are now mostly girl names. I know that bothers some, but "son" names can work on girls.

It’s quite common where I live as well. They usually go by the nickname Macy. I’m not a fan of the name for a girl however, I just don’t think it’s very feminine IMO. But if you love it go for it!

Honestly, I think it works fine for a girl, I just don’t like that spelling. It looks way too contrived - like you’re trying too hard. I think the name sounds girly enough. A slight change to the spelling wouldn’t be bad, but the "ae" and syn" is too much.

Macen or Macyn

I just don’t like it much at all, sorry.

No, for a girl.

I would eliminate Maesyn..inevitably she would end up getting call Mae..which is terrible..Maci or Macy is much prettier
