Comments for MY:

My is not pronounced as the English word "my" but as the Germans would pronounce "mü" or the French would pronounce "mu". The closest English way to pronounce it would be "me".

I think the reason Swedish parents started using this name is because of Little My, a tough little girl in Tove Janssons children's books about the Moomin trolls.

I've never heard My being used as a nickname for Maria. It has always been connected with Little My. Tove Jansson got it from mathematics. My is a Greek letter (it's the letter M).

I will be honest. This name drives me crazy because it always shows up linked on the message boards when people sometimes aren't even talking about names, and I hadn't even heard of it until I joined BtN. Oh well.

It is also a Vietnamese name meaning 'elegant'.

Super weird.

My means "we" in Czech and Slovak.

I hate this name. It sounds stupid and shouldn't be linked at the message boards.

What kinda name is My? Thought that was just a weird. Imagine someone saying "Hi, my name is My." It's like, my what?

Sorry, but it's not pronounced like the word "My". It's something like "MEE". You have to learn that some countries use different spelling/pronunciation system than English.

My sounds weird to me, but I have the feeling that it wouldn't if I were Swedish.

It's a perfectly normal name in Sweden. It's nice, but a little too short for My taste.
It's not pronounced like the English word.

I just can't get over the Moomin association.

I know a girl named My. She plays on my hockey team and she is from Sweden. I personally think it's a cool name but I would never name my child it because I am not from Sweden.

What the heck are these comments about? It's a Swedish name so it wouldn't be pronounced M-Y. It's such a common name here but I understand why people think it's weird, though believe me if you were Swedish.. or Scandinavian even, it would be as normal as the name Anna.
