Maisie? Maisy? Maisey?

LeoTheLateBloomer Sun 26-May-13 07:20:24

I would say Maisy.

Both Maisy and Maisie are correct,but imo Maisy looks better and a bit more grown up.

Eskino Sun 26-May-13 07:25:31

Thought it was Maisie.

I think Maisy - Maisie looks more like a nn imo.

lovesmileandlaugh Sun 26-May-13 07:32:03

I thought Maisie, Maisy was made more common by Maisy Mouse.

My DD is called Maisie, but just about everything someone else writes her name on, spells it Maisey. It really bugs me. Just wondered if I had somehow spelt it wrong? (I know I hadn't as the name was pinched from an elderly aunt before I'd realised how popular it was!)

Minoan Sun 26-May-13 07:33:38

Maisie, I think

AcrylicPlexiglass Sun 26-May-13 07:42:29

It's like Katy, Catie and Katie. All fine.

lovesmileandlaugh Sun 26-May-13 07:56:30

I agree with Katy and Katie. Catie would never be my default spelling if I wasn't sure!

It was the Lucy/ Lucie thread that made me ponder it!!

either Maisie or Maisy

Maisie is a person, Maisy is a mouse.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Sun 26-May-13 12:52:05

Maisie, I thought.

sjuperyoni Sun 26-May-13 12:52:39

Maisie - i've never seen maisey it looks like it's been 'cute ified' (real word) as the baby names people love saying ''it looks nicknamey'' wink

My neice was nearly a maisie but ended up a lucy smile

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 26-May-13 13:54:57

I've never seen Maisey before.

Either Maisie or Maisy are the spellings I've seen. I think I'd assume Maisy if I was just told the name and had to write it down though.

jellybeans Sun 26-May-13 13:57:53

Maisie is nicer.

Lebkuchenlover Sun 26-May-13 21:34:59

Maisy looks the nicest and most 'normal'.

Maisey/Maisie are too cutesy/babyish imo!

nooka Sun 26-May-13 21:40:07

Maisie is I think most correct, although Maisy mouse makes me think that's OK too. Maisey is just wrong!

But then I have a Lily (Lilian) who gets Lilly, Lilie and Lillie at times, all of which look very wrong to me, but presumably not to the writer!

The only RL person I have ever met with this name was a girl at school, who spelt her name "Maisie". My mum's dog is Maisie too.

Lebkuchenlover Sun 26-May-13 21:45:21

Yes, Maisy Mouse! That's why I think Maisy.

It's Maisie in 'the boyfriend' that's how I've always known it smile
