Comments for MAIA (2):

The name of the race of wizards in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.

The race in Tolkien was the Maiar. A single individual would be a Maia. Despite that, I think this is a beautiful name that does not call attention to itself as in some way connected to popular/genre literature that is not everyone's cup of tea. How many hardcore Tolkien nerds (yours truly included) are out there to prejudice this great name?

In Hans Christian Andersen's story Thumbelina, Maia is the name given to Thumbelina by the fairies at the end of the story when she marries their king. I like it - it's charming.

*starts singing*

Ma-ia hii!
Ma-ia huu!
Ma-ia hoo!
Ma-ia haha!

Okay. Sorry. I just could not resist. God, I love that song! My mum's singing it right now. And for those of you who care: That part of the song doesn't mean anything. It's just sounds. (The rest of the song is actual Romanian.)

Well, it's an okay name, but it will always remind me of that song, as will aeroplanes, white trousers, Picasso, and sunglasses. (Not that this is a BAD thing, mind you.)
