I love this name. I think it's really sweet and pretty. I realise that some people think it's a bit twee, but I don't care, I like the fact it's slightly sentimental. I also like the fact that it's unusual because while I like my own name (Amy) I hate it that there's so much of us. It's cool to have an individual name, and when it's also an extremely lovely one like Maisie, then that's even better. If I ever have a daughter, I'm going to call her Maisie Faye (Faye being her middle name).

I think this is an utterly cute name!

Could also be amended to Maysie or Maisy.

I wish more people would use Maisie/Maisy on girls and leave the masculine name Mason to the boys. ;)

I remember a Dr. Seuss video called "Daisy-head Maisie", where this girl starts growing daisies from her head. At least I think that's how it went, it's been a while.

Maisie sounds like a dog name to me. Not that it's a terrible human name, I just know a lot of dogs named that.

Maisie can also be a nickname for Margaret. I really like it in that capacity.

This name is so prissy but I still like it for some reason. Well, nobody's perfect!

A (somewhat) famous bearer of this name is Maisie Roxanne (b. February 10th, 09), a baby born to a controversial 13-year-old father Alfie Patten and a 15-year-old mother in England. The birth has sparked extensive debate over teenage pregnancy and sex education in the country.

I like this name, it's sweet. Perhaps a little too sweet - I can't imagine it on anyone other than a small girl with ringlets or an elderly lady.

This name is very, very sweet for a little girl. Perhaps a bit infantile for a middle-aged woman, but you can work around that (calling the daughter Mairead or Margaret or Mary, or anything like that, and leave Maisie as a nickname).

Maisie Williams plays Arya Stark in the TV adaption, Game of Thrones, of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series.

This is the name of a young character in the book What Maisie Knew by Henry James.

More of a nickname, although I'm not sure what names it could be for (Margaret? Madeleine?) but it really shouldn't be used as a full name in my opinion. Also, its practically unheard of in the US but to my surprise extremely popular in the UK, much like Alfie or poppy.

Despite its trendiness in the UK, the name Maisie is very uncommon in the US. It was only given to 147 baby girls here in 2012. I think it's an adorable nickname, but a little too cutesy to be a full name.

My name is Maisie and I love it. I hated it when I was younger but have grown to like it. It was always misspelt as 'Maisy' but I find that Maisie is more common now.
-- Maisie  4/29/2014
Aww, this name is so sweet and pretty and it ages well, too.

The actress who plays Arya Stark on Game of Thrones is named Maisie Williams.

There is a character in Seussical with this name, but it's spelled Mayzie.

My names Ottilie-Maisie, but I often get called Maisie. Whilst it is a nice name I think it's beginning to get over used, and it's not just the pronunciation but the spelling as well.
-- OttilieMaisie  4/3/2015
The name Maisie is so pretty, sweet and cute! I love this name! 10/10. ^^

If I had a cow, I would call it Maisie. This always seems to be what cows are called. For a girl, it just seems too weak and soppy.
