Comments for MAEVA:

I think this name is very beautiful. It would work well as either a first or middle name.

Maeva is a wonderful alternative to the Irish name Maeve, which although is nice enough has an unwanted meaning of "intoxicating".

Actually, the Irish name is Meabh or Meadhbh (both pronounced MAYV). Maeve is just the anglicisation. You cannot call Maeve the Irish form, since "v", as a letter, and the diphthong "ae" does not exist in Irish.

Since my last name is Maeva it does have a lasting impression. The name was given to me by my father, and his father was from American Samoa, which seems to be a large family in the islands. The e is silent and is actually pronounced more with an long a sound Ma'ava, something do do with the actual vowels recognized in their alphabete.

It's pronounced MAH ay vah (spelled Maéva, with an accent).

My name is Maeva and I'm half Samoan so my name is pronounced like this-mah-EH-va. But everyone just calls me mayva because they cannot pronounce it.

Maeva is a great name. I love Maeve and Méabh, but they are so overused in Ireland. Maeva is a lot more unique, and it's a very beautiful name. Even nicer than Maeve, I must confess. I really like it. I think it would suit any sort of girl.

I really like how this name sounds and the meaning -- "welcome." It feels like if a parent gives child this name, they are welcoming their baby into the world.

My sister up top's (who's half Samoan like me) name is Maeva and it's pronounced "ma -EH -va" . Like the EH is "e" in egg. I like this better than Maeve.
