    I must have had this converstaion a million times -

    Random - What's your baby called??

    Me - Maya

    Random - Ohhh Mia. That's lovely, very popular

    Me - No, it's Ma - ya (say this slowly & clearly)

    Random - Yes I did hear, it was one of the most popular names last year you know?

    Me - She is called Maya! As in Mayanaise??

    Random - Oh, right, hmmmmm. Why on earth did you call her that??

    lmao using mayo as a reference to your daughters name.

    And in answer to your question, its does sound similar but in the written sense its very different
