DP and I had sort of agreed on Maya Jo for DD2, but now I'm thinking that Maisie Jo is prettier. DP doesn't agree. What do the wise women of MN think???

Agree with you, Maisie is nicer.

I prefer the name Maya but it doesn't go as well with Jo.

Maya definitely
Maisie just reminds me of those crap books

Are you going to call her by both names or just the first? I like Maisie or Maisie Jo, not so keen on Maya with Jo; Maya seems too Spanish/ South American to go with Jo.

I like Maya. I like Jo but sometimes a short first name takes a more substantial mn to balance it out. There is a beautiful children's book called 'Journey to the River Sea' by Eva Ibbotson and it's heroine is named Maya.

Maya Joie
Maya Jonelle
Maya Josephine
Maya Jocelyn

I take it Maya would be the first name and Jo the middle?

I prefer Maya. Maisie is lovely but I think it's a little girl/ baby name and Maya has more mileage.

I prefer Maya to Maisie, but I don't think it goes with Jo.

Maya - lovely
would suggest a full name for a middle name, in agreement with Heated - there's also Joanna, Jocasta (I wouldn't use it, but people do), Jolene, Jody, others, I'm sure)

thanks all - would be using Jo as a middle name - so not together. Jo is a given - naming after DPs best friend hmm

Def like Maisie better!

i like both of them but not the jo bit.

If you extended the Jo into a full name like Josephine, for instance, it still is honoring DP's bf (or is what you can tell him) but feminising it & making it work better with Maya.
