We have narrowed names for our baby girl down to 2. I know names go in and out of popularity, but I am just curious to know how popular these 2 are at the moment?
So... How many children do you know with either the name Imogen or Mya? Thanks smile

How do you pronounce Mya? Is it My-UH? MEEE-uh, what?
I know one Maya (MY-uh) and no Imogens.
Imogen makes me cringe, tbh, not remotely pretty in my mind. I can't see Imogen having a sister called Jayde & a brother called Tyler.

the odd Imogen and millions of Maya/Mya/Maja/Maia so much so it has become a joke. I once walked round the PN ward and only one baby girl was not a Maia/Maya/Mya/Maja. It is super trendy because it is nice and works in a number of languages/cultures and it looks less popular than it is because of the spelling variations.

I know three Imogens. One adult and two little girls of about 5 yrs old. Nice name.

I know infant school aged children called Maya and Mia. Two teenagers called Mya with that spelling. Also a Maja and Maia! Both little girls.
