    Maia. I really like the name but not sure how people will pronounce it! Would you say it like the month as in May ah, or like My ah? Thanks in advance!

    I don't think there is a right or wrong way to pronounce a name, you can decide either way, if i was choosing i would pick My ah because i like the way that sounds.

    Good Luck

    Would Maya be a better spelling for May-ah?

    Maia is definitely prn. MY-ah. It's just like Kaia which is prn. KYE-ah.

    If you are going for the prn. of MAY-ah, I would spell it Maya.

    I'd pronounce it my-ah as well. If you want it pronounced May-ah, I'd spell it Maya. Looks nicer as well I think.
