Comments for the name Mai


Comments for MAI (1):

"Mai" is also a common female name in Estonia since Christianization in the 13th century. The same female name appears in Norway and Sweden, but not so much any more. "Mai" refers also to the 5th month of the year in Scandinavian, Germanic langauges and in the Estonian language.

"Mai" is cherry blossom, a specific flower rather than just "flower". [noted -ed]

"Mai" is also the month of "May" translated into French.

There is a mistake. I am Vietnamese and from what I've learned in Vietnam since birth, Mai is a gorgeous yellow/golden flower used on Chinese New Year along with the real cherry blossom tree that is known as Dau in Vietnamese.

Cherry blossoms don't come in the color of yellow or gold. Mai has a large difference between Dau. But they are both Chinese New Years' special trees. Please don't mix them up! I know this because my last name is Mai! [noted -ed]

Just a little plain, but pretty. I like this name, especially spelled "Mai."

Mai is also a Chinese name. One of the symbols for it is èÈ or With this meaning, it means "windblown dust falling like rain". It is a very rare name but I am fortunate enough to have a best friend named as such.

Mai would be great as a middle name. It is simple and sweet and goes with any name, really.

Cool name. Also means "May" (the month) in Romanian.

I think this is a very pretty name, but a bit too common since there are tons of girls named Mai at my school.

"Mai" is also the month of "May" translated into Welsh. It is used as a first name, but also a very popular middle name.

I never really liked this name, especially not how this girl in my class named Mai pronounces it. MY - exactly the same as the word 'my'. If you must use it, pronounce it MAY, like the month.
