My friend just named her daughter Maia, pronounced May-a. I love that name!!
well, when i was a kid i hated my name. i thought it was weird. but as i grew, i've learned to love my name. It's actually cool. although sometimes i hate it when people pronounce my name jasmin. i clearly said my name is yasmin and they keep on saying jasmin. i actually have to spell it out for them.
I always hated saying it out loud. I'm not sure if It's just weird saying your own name or if It's because It's still quite unusual. As an adult, I am now forced to introduce myself rather than hiding behind my parents' legs, so I tend to be quite slow about It'so I won't have to repeat it. I always do anyway, and I always have to spell it. Then I'm told how pretty and unusual it is, and I smile, thinking about how ten years from now, elementary schools will be swarming with us.
Hated it as a kid, love it as an adult. No matter how you spell it people always have somthing inter'sting and complimentary to say about it. -Proud to be MAIA
