I think May is better, it just looks less rough around the edges.

My middle name is Mae and I really love it. It's very pretty, but simple. A lot of people are confused by the spelling, but you should spell the name of the month and the given name differently.

I love the name Mae, I think it makes a great middle name. Vivienne Mae or something of the sort. It's gorgeous and short. I like it better spelt this way then May.

Mae is my middle name, and I much prefer the spelling with an "e" versus a "y". MAE looks better in my opinion, MAY being far too common and modern looking. MAE reminds me of Old English spellings using 'ae' as (basically) one letter.

Mae West, a risque American actress of the 1940's.

Mae is my middle name too, Sara Mae. I also agree with the above poster about the AE in Mae it also reminds me of Æ though it would sound like Mah if it was used, which is nowhere near as pretty as Mae. I prefer it to May also.

This is a very common middle name in the American South.

Mae is one of those filler middle names for people who don't really want to put the time into thinking of one.
-- scholasticastewart  12/19/2007
This name sounds like a generic middle name for a female redneck.

I like Mae, it's more original the May, and it's the middle name I am planning for my 1st daughter I will have.

Mae is an indie/alternative rock band from the US that formed in 2001. For them it's an acronym for Multi-sensory Aesthetic Experience.

I really like Mae. It's simple and pretty without being too girly or cutesy. In my opinion this spelling is much better than May.

Mae Mordabito was the name of a character in "A League of Their Own." She was played by Madonna and known by the nickname "All The Way Mae".
-- Madyson  2/6/2012
Totally love it. This was my grandmother's middle name and was recently passed onto my cousin. It's a more interesting variant of May and a great alternative to Marie as a middle name. It just sounds so simple and sweet.

Actress Mae Murray (1889-1965).
-- moonbaby9307  12/29/2012
Much better spelling than May. It's a cute nickname for Marie :)
-- Oohvintage  1/12/2013
Also can be a nickname for Margaret. I think it's a lot prettier than marge/Madge, and a lot more unique than Maggie, although I like that too :)

I LOVE the name Mae. But I wouldn't want that to be my name alone, I would have it at the end of a common name to make more unique. I especially like the name "Daisy Mae". I don't know why, I guess because it seems everybody is named Daisy, and if you want a character to be named Daisy anyway, you can make it Daisy Mae and it becomes more unique, and yet you still have the "Daisy" part in there.

Love this name so much and like spelling May too. Great first name, better than middle- then it sounds like an old person.

This name is more popular for boys than girls in France. I cannot see a boy or a man for that matter named Mae.

A famous bearer is Mae Mobley Leefolt from the Help.
-- EUPHOORIA  3/16/2014
I have to disagree with all the people that prefer Mae over May. May sounds classic and pretty, if a bit old fashioned and rural. Mae sounds too "kre8tiv" and odd, and vaguely unbalanced.
-- kvpp88  8/19/2014
I love the name Mae! It also looks so much nicer than the spelling 'May', 'May' looks too... well, Mae looks a lot better. It looks like a spelling of a girl's name, not a month.

Mae looks cute but the advantage of May is that May is also the name of a flower (the blossom of the hawthorn bush) and so a plant or nature name whereas Mae is really just a nickname for Margaret or Mary.
