How would you spell may for a middle name??? First name either Chloe or Jessica

May. Definitely May.

Mae after Mae West. I'm a huge fan. Without a moment's hesitation.

May.

'ae' looks so jarring and weird.

May, but it does translate as blah.

I prefer Mae

DickDewy Fri 04-Dec-15 20:15:50

May. But avoid if you can. It's so blah

Mae

My dN has mai as a middle name.

May.

But it just seems meaningless now - like Rose - SO overused it just seems like a filler name now.

Oh god mai- yes the other variant which pops up. Never Mai, please

May.
I think it looks nicer...

Is there a particular reason you want to use it as a middle name, i.e. you're naming her after someone, or she was born in the month of May (I'm guessing not, or you'd be set on the spelling)?

Because otherwise, May/Mae is such a default, 'filler' middle name now, that I don't know why people bother with a middle name at all, if they're just going to plug May or Rose in there just for the sake it.

There are so many lovely girls names out there - simple, elegant one-syllable ones as well, if that's your bag - so why so many people default to these two is a mystery.

Our oldest daughter's middle name is Mae, it's a family name which has in the past has had both spellings. I prefer Mae as it looks better with her first name smile

Same with my niece Durham

Dn has Mae as a nod to her roots.
