Famous bearer is Mao Zedong. Zedong was his given name.

Oh, this is like, one of my favorite names! I love this! It's one of my nicknames. ^^

By the way, it's not pronounced like "mayo", it's pronounced MAH-OH. [Meiyo would be pronounced like mayo.] Mao is really pretty in my opinion. ^^

I've never heard this on a female so I'm not sure why it's considered a feminine name. Also Mao Zedong isn't Japanese so I don't think that should count.

Mao, the lead singer of Sadie, though it's unknown if that's his true name, that's his stage name at least.

Chinese word for 'cat'.

Ugh. Chairman Mao, anyone? This is a terrible name to have.

Well, there are several anime/manga/game characters with this name (a deal of which are female, true.) On the other hand it does seem a more masculine, either way at most. Then again part of that may be attributed to the main character (male) of the game Disgaea 3 having this name.

Mao is actually a gender neutral name in Japan. I have known a girl named Mao and two boys named Mao, one of whom is my cousin.
