Lovely girls name or a bit boring? I don't know any so hopefully not really popular. THanks

I think it's lovely. I wouldn't say it was boring, but perhaps a little safe.

I think its lovely smile

a bit boring IMO. To me it's that good old middle name staple that goes with everything a bit like Jane and Louise have been in the past (maybe still are who knows!) How about Maya to make it slightly more interesting.

I always think, 'or may not'. Sorry, my own quirk.

I really like May. Not Maya - as a teacher I see more and more Mayas but no Mays. May is lovely.

Very pretty, and underused as a first name smile

I like it, a lovely classic name, and the bonus for me is that it cannot be shortenedsmile

May is lovely, i know a lovely adult called May, she is a real lady.

It's a very pretty name

Prefer it as a middle name smile

I like it spelt Mae. Know a really lovely little girl called Mae.

Plus she'll be top of the class when it comes to writing their names as is nice and short!

I love it. Everyone knows it, but it's gorgeous and rarely used as a 1st name.

I'd love it if our surname was long enough to take it!

'I'd love it if our surname was long enough to take it!'

How short is your surname? Mae West did quite well with it?!? I think its quite snappy with a one syllable surname.

TarquinGyrfalcon Thu 01-Sep-11 13:50:39

I think it's lovely as long as your short surname isn't Day

May is lovely! especially with the traditional spelling

MelinaM Thu 01-Sep-11 18:10:52

Mae is an awful spelling, Mai is marginally nicer but May is definitely the bestgrin

I agree it is much nicer than Maya, and the May spelling is my favourite. Looks like a real name and not a cocktail (Mai tai) or Mae West. I like it far more as a first name than as a second.
