Makes a great middle name.

It's a month!

This is such a sweet name. I think of a dark eyed girl with a windy smile and happy demeanor.

I think May is a very sweet name. I know a Lauren May and a Shannon May. I think it's nice as a middle name, nicer as a first name and also as a nickname for Maia.

I love the name May or Mae. I think I would use it as a middle name though. But it's very pretty.
-- EgYpTiAn PrInCeSs  1/17/2007
I prefer the spelling Mae.

This name is short and sweet. Very easy to remember. I like most flower names, and this is one of my favourites.

May (mæg) means 'maiden' in Old English.

The name register I have tells me May comes from Margaretha and that means 'pearl' which I think is quite beautiful.
-- Cinnamonster  6/11/2007
It can also be a nickname for Mary. My name is Mary but everyone just calls me May.

May is also an old Arabic name, no specific meaning attached.

It is a really nice name, I like it. I might name my daughter Jaidenne May.
-- MonaLisaSmile  7/2/2007
I think May is such a lovely name! I'd like to have a daughter named Avril May. LOL that's like April May but Avril is much better in my opinion. Okay I'm only 13 so I have plenty of time to think about this.

I love the name May as a middle name but not as a first. I would have my second girl be named cassandra May.

May is a pretty middle name. My mom's middle name is May.
-- annie0302  1/2/2008
Most people are saying how much they like it as a middle name but I actually prefer it as a first. It's simple and pretty and yet very rarely ever heard as a first name (well that's as far as I've heard).

A famous bearer of this name (as a surname) is Brian May. He was the guitarist from the band Queen. He wrote many of the band's songs, including hits like We Will Rock You, Fat-Bottomed Girls, Save Me, and other, more obscure songs like Father to Son, Keep Yourself Alive and '39. He is notable for having created his own guitar with his father. He calls this guitar the Red Special because of its color. Personally, he's my favorite member of Queen.

This is my last name! It's an Irish last name.

My mates think this is an old woman's name when it isn't. I love it!
-- cheeseface  6/27/2008
In Limburgish, this name is a short form of Maria and Marie. The pronunciation would be MAHY: the 'a'-sound is slightly different than in the English pronunciation. It's similar to the 'ah' in 'aha' (as in: "Aha! I found something!").
-- Lucille  10/18/2008
I find this name very nice, but simple and short. It sometimes seems like a nickname for something.
-- -Julia-  7/23/2009
"Our Only May Amelia" is an award-winning children's book that I read when I was young. The protagonist is a twelve-year-old girl named May Amelia (obviously). I think May Amelia is a great combination.

May is one of my least favorite names. 3 letter names are sorta ridiculous.
-- italiannames  8/29/2009
Although it may (haha!) seem a bit quaint nowadays, it's very gentle and pretty - perfect for a girl born in the month of the same name.
-- LaSorciere  10/20/2009
Really outdated. It another boring 3 letter name.

May is the name of the main character in Jodi Lynn Anderson's "May Bird" trilogy. Her full name is May Ellen Bird.
-- EchoSketcher  2/14/2010
I think this name is simple and pretty, and also has a little touch of something extra about it. Because May Day is a time for fertility rituals and traditionally a time to deflower willing - or unwilling - virgins, there is something slightly sexy and illicit about it as well. It's a "still waters run deep" name.

May is one of the Boatwright Sisters in "The Secret Life of Bees."
-- Milena Scialfa  4/15/2010
It's a month and very easy to remember. My personal opinion says that I like it for a middle name unless something is added to it, then I take it as a first name.
-- teenagewriter  10/2/2010
My name is May Linn. I'm from Norway and May is pronounced similar to how you say the English word 'MY', so mine is almost like Mai with a y sound in the end.
-- Maylie  12/12/2010
As a general rule, I don't like month names (May, June, September, etc.). But I will admit that May can make a nice middle name. I'd never use it, though.

Dame May Whitty (born Mary Louise Whitty) was a British actress. See her play two very different old ladies in Night Must Fall and The Lady Vanishes (among other roles).
-- Kosta  7/28/2011
May is such a sweet name, not to mention I love the month of May. I think it should be used more as a first name!
-- Bunko0  8/5/2011
This is the name of May Welland, a central character from "The Age of Innocence" by Edith Wharton. I think it's a little too plain to be a full name, but it sounds cute as a nickname or middle name.
-- sunshinechild67  2/13/2012
I really love this name; I think it'd work best as a middle name, but it sounds just as great to be used as an everyday nickname as well. Strong, feminine, and sophisticated.
-- walesgal92  6/24/2012
I had a (now elderly neighbour) called May - a real livewire who had a white poodle called Remus and a white cat called Mimi and was quite unforgettable in many ways. Her sister was called Gwen and was as quiet a May was extrovert.
So when I see the name May I always think (fondly)of my ex-neighbour though the name to me is a tad boring.

I only like the name if it signifies the hawthorn flower and the baby is born when that flower is in bloom. The name is too blah otherwise, and Margaret and Mary are better (but not Mabel - awful frumpy name).

May is my middle name. I'm Elly May, people always think that that is my full first name when it isn't but I like May. It was my great grandmothers name.
-- Elly and Proud  1/2/2013
