"Mae" nickname for a Zoe sister

Second baby and it’s another girl! We’re having a more difficult time naming this one because we had decided on older sister’s name [name_f]Zoe[/name_f] years ago. We really like cool, quirky names that aren’t overly feminine and tend to stay away from soft vowel sounds. We realized we love the nickname [name_f]Mae[/name_f] but aren’t sure about that as a full name. Considering [name_f]Maegan[/name_f] or [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] but we’re open to suggestions! Also considering [name_u]Sage[/name_u], [name_f]Raegan[/name_f] (feels a little too trendy) or anything of the sort. Thanks!

[name_f]Mae[/name_f] is cute.

[name_f]Meta[/name_f] (prn. [name_f]Mae[/name_f]-ta)

That’s all I can come up with, sorry!!

Names w/ nickname [name_f]Mae[/name_f]:


I would use just [name_f]Mae[/name_f]. It is a full name on it’s own. Plus, it would be cool for both names to have three letters.

I agree that [name_f]Mae[/name_f] is lovely as a full name. I’m not at all a fan of [name_f]Maegan[/name_f]. [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] is lovely! I also know a little girl named Maeryn and I like that even more!!

[name_f]Mae[/name_f] is fine on its own :slight_smile: But if you really want a full name, I like [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] or [name_f]Maeva[/name_f]

I agree with above poster. [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] is a great choice, but so is just [name_f]Mae[/name_f].

I really like [name_f]Zoe[/name_f] and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] :slight_smile:

[name_f]Maeva[/name_f] - I prefer this over [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Maelle[/name_f] - [name_f]May[/name_f]+[name_f]Elle[/name_f]

My daughter is [name_f]Esme[/name_f] (pronounced Ehz-may) and we call her [name_f]Mae[/name_f] as a nickname if that suits you at all. [name_f]Esme[/name_f] has a beautiful meaning, just like [name_f]Zoe[/name_f], so they might go well together.

I think [name_f]Mae[/name_f] and [name_f]Zoe[/name_f] are great together. If I had to pick a full name for [name_f]Mae[/name_f] I’d choose [name_f]Mabel[/name_f], but I don’t think [name_f]Mae[/name_f] needs a full name anyways.

There’s also [name_f]Maisey[/name_f] and [name_f]Mavis[/name_f]

Or Amaleigh prehaps?

Ooh love the [name_f]Esme[/name_f] suggestion

Great suggestions! I love [name_f]Zoe[/name_f] and [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] together. I prefer it to [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]. I also like [name_f]Zoe[/name_f] and [name_f]Cleo[/name_f].
