Gross name! Please don't name your child this! This name is one of my worst nightmares. I 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000% prefer Maya or Mia.

I prefer this more than Mia, “me” at the start of the name sounds bad.

Looks incomplete.

I don't have any issues with pronunciation (it's MIE-ə, we all know this), but this is probably my least favorite spelling because to me, it looks incomplete. Maya is the most popular spelling, which I can understand - especially in North America, where the Maya peoples still live today (that's usually my first association with the name). However, like another poster stated, sometimes I mentally read that as MAY-ə, with a long-A. My favorite spelling is actually the Greek one: Maia.

I named my daughter Mya. I pronounce it My-uh. One meaning of the name is also "good mother".

Can also be pronounced 'MEE-a'.

My name is Mya but others pronounce it as Mi-auha or just may-uha. I have only 3 letters in my whole name, so...

My name is Mya and I pronounce it My-Uh. I've grown up with people calling me Me-Uh and My-Ruh, it gets annoying! Lol.

I'm not a big fan of it. I know it's pronounced "MY-uh" but I always said it like "mee-YAH".

Beautiful! Maya sounds too modern, but Mya is perfect! I'm going to use this in my book!

Sounds very hip hop- I like it! Love the spelling of it too!

Actually, my first instinct is to pronounce this Myah (with one syllable and a consonant y sound). If you name your daughter this, that is what I will call her. So don't think this spelling variation is easy to understand or pronounce. I think most people know how to pronounce Maya because we are familiar with or at least have heard of the Native American civilization. I actually think Mya pronounced like I wrote is weirdly attractive now, hehe.

I prefer this spelling as there's no pronunciation confusion. You pronounce as it's spelt!

This is my pet rat's name lol. But we spell it "Myah" and I think this name is even cute for a human. LOL.

It's my middle name and I just LOVE it, it's very very pretty.

A friend of mine's goddaughter is named Mya, and I think it's a beautiful name. I also like this spelling better than Maya, which looks like MAY-uh with a long "a".

This is my favorite spelling of the name, as Maya always struck me as pretentious or new-age-y. It's a pretty name, but I'm not sure how good it sounds on a grown woman who wants to be taken seriously in this world of classism, sexism, tough competition, and all that crap.
