I'm 22 weeks pregnant my little girl and completely stuck I want a name that's not a everyday name so slightly unusual but not to strange I really like Ava-mae and Ivy-mae but none of them really stand out to me my partner likes Hiedi but I'm not so keen any names you all can think of??

Ava and Ivy are both popular (Ava particularly). Mae is also the most popular as a hyphenated name.

Heidi is nice

I know mae is popular but I'm wanting it as made is after my nana

Annie Mae?

If you dont want everyday names forget Ava and Ivy, they're everywhere.
There's nothing stopping you from using Mae, but just with a less over used first name
Heidi Mae is very sweet and not ridiculously popular.
Other suggestions
Nyla Mae.
Rosa Mae
Eden Mae
Aurora Mae
Luna Mae
Nyree Mae

Why not just use Mae on it's own?
Mae is ridiculously overused as a hyphenated middle name, but using if as a first name is very rare (only 85 in 2016 according to one stats).

I’d use Mae without the hyphen.

Annie Mae
Nancy Mae
Audrey Mae
Lucy Mae
Ada Mae
Rosa Mae
Alice Mae
Sylvie Mae
Anna Mae
Clara Mae
Flora Mae

If you're firmly wanting hyphenated, I think Heidi-Mae is pretty.

Or, as an alternative, Edie-Mae sounds good.

Or what about Maeve (as a standalone name, unhyphenated with anything else), which would still honour your Grandmother, but is a little more unusual?

Plasticgold Fri 27-Oct-17 14:04:23

Agreed on no hyphen.

How about:
Phoebe Mae
Rosa Mae
Evie Mae
Georgia Mae
Eleanor Mae
Sophia Mae
Annabelle Mae

Roberta mae?

Marv1nGay3 Fri 27-Oct-17 14:13:57

I know a Maisie Mae. I like Eliza Mae, or Georgia Mae?

Tillie Mae?

Mae on it's own is better than either of the hyphenated versions.

Or Heidi Mae no hyphen

BernardBlacksHangover Fri 27-Oct-17 15:04:32

I know an Ava-Mae and an Eva-Mae, both from my small town, so depends if popularity would bother you.

I like Heidi.

How about Ottolie? Ottolie-Mae could be quite sweet as well.

Mae as a first name is beautiful by itself.

Flora Rae

BernardBlacksHangover Sat 28-Oct-17 09:47:01

Esme (pronounced Ez-may)?

Are you set on the hyphen op?

BernardBlacksHangover Sat 28-Oct-17 09:48:57

Josephine Mae with nn Josie Mae
April-May wink

BernardBlacksHangover Sat 28-Oct-17 09:50:39

Last suggestion I promise!

Mabel with nn Mae?

Do come back and let us know if you like any of these op smile.

IAmTheDragon Sat 28-Oct-17 12:02:21

I think Mae is hideous. May, like the month, is far more pleasing to the eye.

I love month names. June is well overdue a revival.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sat 28-Oct-17 15:51:55

Hi OP, if you like Ivy and Heidi, how about Ida ?

mondler Sat 28-Oct-17 16:02:55

Another vote for Mae as a first name. It's so pretty and underused, plus it would honour your Grandma? If not some other names that may fit:


PandorasXbox Sat 28-Oct-17 16:03:57

Why not May. Much more credible. And no hyphens!
