The oriental spelling of May, it's a very nice name.

Mei means 'plum-blossom' in some Chinese languages. In China most girls are named after flowers, such as 'Chun-mei', spring plum-blossom, and 'Dong-mei', winter plum-blossom.

Often, Mei is used twice (Mei Mei), which makes this beautiful name sound rather quaint (not a bad thing at all!)

Meimei means "little (younger) sister". Mei also means "American" (from the sound "a-ME-rica").

Depending on the tone used and character for "Mei," in Chinese it can mean any number of things - including: beautiful, American, and meimei means younger sister or is the nickname version for Mei.

Overused by people who want to attempt to make up an "Asian Name." I read books with supposedly "Asian girls" whose names are Mei-Ling, Mei-Chen, Mei-Tang, Chin-Mei, Chang-Mei. It gets annoying after a while. I know that this is supposed to be a popular girls' name in China but in my Chinese school years, I've never heard of a student with "Mei" in their name at all!

Mei is the name for the famous oriental plum blossom (Prunus Mei), which is the only flower that blossoms in winter (January), and is therefore a symbol of Chinese new year. Can also mean beauty or beautiful.
Really love this name!

This is quite a cute name. My sister and I wanted to choose a Chinese name for my pet pug (as she is of Chinese origin) and we selected this name for her. We typically call her Meimei though, because it sounds more like a nickname/pet name and because she was like a "little sister" to my other pug.

My Chinese name at birth was Mei Qing 美清--It's traditional for the father's father to choose any grandchild's name but I'm only half Chinese and on my mother's side so her father named me. The story goes that he spent months before my birth researching characters and meanings to choose the right name.

It's not the name on my birth certificate but it still feels like mine. Mei is also my middle name as well as the name of my grandmother or at least part of her original name although she spells her anglicized name May.
