Were planning on naming our daughter, Maia Elizabeth Mark, but so far were concerning that might very similar sounding for the public to formal known her as Maia Mark? Much appreciated,

I think Maia Elizabeth Mark is a lovely name! Alliteratives such as Maia Mark are actually more common than you might think and probably won't be met with a lot of resistance,

In short, go with it, baby.

Ooh...like that name. I would say go for it. My only concern is that the consonants might bleed together when she introduces herself as maiamark. Think a little bit...are you only a little sad to see Maia go? But if it's your favorite, do it! I think Maia Mark is a fine name.

I think Maia Mark works great! It might blend together a bit, but if you're okay with that, then it'll be fine. Another option is to give her a long name with Maia as a nickname - Amaiah, Mariah, etc.

Maia Elizabeth is a gorgeous name!  One of my favorites and it works well with your last name.  :)  I love that spelling of Maia too.  It's different but still very sophisticated and I personally think it looks a little better than Maya and much nicer than Mya/Myah too (which I don't like at all.  lol).

I find first and last names that start with the same letter - Maia Mark, Susan Sarandon, Marilyn Monroe, and Rebecca Romijn, to name a few - are striking and memorable in a good way.

 

There are hurdles with every name; I wouldn't sweat this one. Maia Elizabeth Mark is a gorgeous name that will age well and suit her well no matter who she grows up to be.
