After months of looking through baby name books and websites and arguing to find a name for DD3 due in 11 weeks we've finally found a name we both can agree on grin

When i say we've found a name i mean DD1 (4 next wk) has been calling bump this name for weeks and its grown on us and stuck only we cant agree on the spelling (maybe we just love to disagree grin)

So can we have your advice please
here's the list we have also feel free to add another spelling if you know any more

I like Maisie

MadreInglese Mon 29-Jun-09 14:12:18

Maisie (assuming you are pronouncing it "May-zee")

or Macey (if you're going for May-see)

maisy and macy are different names though surely? maisy has more of a z sound, and macy much more of a soft c/s sound????

anyway, I like Maisy

gillybeanie Mon 29-Jun-09 14:13:05

think Maisie is the nicer way to spell it x x

paisleyleaf Mon 29-Jun-09 14:13:20

I hear Maisy and Macy as sounding different
but for either of those 2 names I think I prefer the spellings I've just done

zeke Mon 29-Jun-09 14:14:17

I would go with Maisy.

zeke Mon 29-Jun-09 14:15:08

I agree, I would pronounce Macy differently, too.

MumGoneCrazy Mon 29-Jun-09 14:15:55

We cant decide how to pronounce it either grin

Dp perfers May-see
and i perfer May-zee

MumGoneCrazy Mon 29-Jun-09 14:17:15

Meant to write that on the bottom of OP but forgot blush
im blaming the heat and the baby brain for that one grin

Mammina Mon 29-Jun-09 14:18:35

wouldn't go for Macy without the E because it just reminds me of the american department store, so for me either Maisy, Maisie, or Macey

lou031205 Mon 29-Jun-09 14:18:53

Well you need to get that sorted before worrying about spellings grin

suwoo Mon 29-Jun-09 14:21:41

I prefer the pronunciation May-zee, spelt Maisie.

BunnyLebowski Mon 29-Jun-09 14:23:20

Maisie or at a push Maisy.

The rest of your list aren't names.

I like Margaret w/ Maisie or Maisy as NN: as it was traditionally.

magbags Mon 29-Jun-09 14:28:35

I know a Maisie and a Macy and they are definetely different (although similar) sounding names.

I much prefer Maisie as it is a softer sound imo (May-zee). It is also the more traditional option, if that makes any differece to you. Good luck.

You've listed at least two different names. Maisie and Macy are not alternate spellings of the same name.

Of the two I think that Maisie is a nicer name.

jellybeans Mon 29-Jun-09 14:32:29

I like Maisie but also Maisy is OK.

annasmami Mon 29-Jun-09 14:33:00

I like Maisy (for -zee) and Macey (for -cee).

RetroMum1 Mon 29-Jun-09 14:37:51

I like Maisy but don't mind Maisie.

Don't like Macy or Macey, it's a different name and reminds me of Macy Gray (didn't like her either!)

Blu Mon 29-Jun-09 14:39:50

NOT Maci, Macee, anyway!

Littlefish Mon 29-Jun-09 14:45:32

Maisy (May-zee)

MamaLazarou Mon 29-Jun-09 14:46:24
