I love this name; it's so beautiful and unusual. There is a character in the anime Yuugiou with this name, and if the name means a golden flower, that explains why she got the name (her hair is bright golden blonde.) :)

Actually the character in "Avatar: the Last Airbender" does spell it "Mai" with an "A" not an "E." She pronounces it like the month "May."

There is a young woman on the anime Yu-Gi-Oh! with the name Mai. In the Japanese version, her full name is Mai Kujaku, which means "dancing peacocks". In the English dub, her name is Mai Valentine. Which is obviously a pun. Though, it's not a bad pun, it's kind of cool.

In Japanese, it is pronounced mah-ee. However, to English speakers, the name will sound like MIE ("my").

This name is not pronounced like mah-ee in Japanese. It's pronounced similar to "my" but obviously not so American. The letters ai together make a unique sound. (Of course they don't separate the vowels from the consonants and the katakana is one character, with the m.) This happens a lot with names that end with I (though you must remember that this is transcribed into English letters.) Names like Rei aren't pronounced Reh-ee either, it's more like "ray" like a ray of sunshine.
