My-er. My friend has spelt her daughter's name maya and that's how she pronounces it x

see i like may a but having googled it it seems some people pronouce mya.
Cp can i ask where the my sound comes from?
I dont want to use a name thats going to spend a lifetime getting corrected.
secondly what do we think?

My-ah. There's a girl at C's school called Maya, and that is how she pronounces it.

I teach three in one class at school and they all have this spelling but one is pronounced 'may-a', and two 'my-a'. I think I'd automatically go for 'may-a' though.

My H's best mates daughter is called Mya and a woman in my team at work's daughter is called Maya they are both pronounced My-ah/M-eye-ah so the same way CP pronounces it, that's the only way I've heard it pronounced but love the name. That or Mea (Me-ah) would have been my number 1 choice if we were to ever have a girl but we wouldn't use it now after H's best mate using it for their little one x

One of Zoe's friends is called this and pronounces it My-a. I wouldn't every make presumptions and would ask tbh, there are so many similar names and even the same spellings have different pronunciations for different people. I'm thinking Maya, Mia, Mya etc

Can be various, I've taught 3 M-eye-ers and one May-er in the same year group, this year I have a May-er. All spelt the same Maya.
I'n always surprised the name isnt further up the name chart.

I've never heard it pronounced May-ah.
31/03/2013 at 19:11
My-ah. Never heard it another way.
31/03/2013 at 19:14
Iv no idea where the m-eye-ah comes from, I worked with a dr who called her daughter that and it was spelled maya so that's how I'd pronounce it
31/03/2013 at 19:49
Maya would be May-Ah to me
To me Mia would be pronounced Me-ah
31/03/2013 at 20:29
I would pronounce it May-A.
To me My-Ah would be Mia/Meah
31/03/2013 at 20:46
To me Mia is Mee-ah.
