For sibling names, not twins! Other options at the moment are Zara, Poppy, Rosie … we can’t agree on many!

We have similar tastes as I have a Maya and a Rosie! I like Max and Maya together. Would you have more then 2 as you might get locked into M initials?

Max and Maya sound great.

The M initial would not be a problem with mail as one would be Mr M and the other Miss M.
I like your other ideas too... all lovely.

If you love the name Maya, then go for it as it's a much lovelier name then Zara, Poppy and Rosie. From those I like Rosie and dislike Zara and Poppy. But Maya is my fav
