Mayna Jade/ Meina Rose / Maynah Jasmine

I don’t yet know if we’re having a boy or a girl, but if it’s a girl we’ve almost definitely decided on Mayna. Which spelling do you prefer? I’ve seen it spelled:


What do you think of this name in general?
(In [name]German[/name]/Dutch it means- Strength
In Sanskrit it means- Knowledgeable
In Greek it means- Lover of Singing
In Arabic it means- A Gift from God)

What middle name do you prefer?

Mayna [name]Rose[/name]
Mayna [name]Jade[/name]
Mayna [name]Jasmine[/name]
Mayna [name]Leanne[/name]
Mayna [name]Kathryn[/name]
Mayna [name]Lee[/name]

I don’t personally care for the name, but of the suggested spellings I think Mayna is the best.

Mayna [name]Kathryn[/name]

Appreciate the response.
[name]Kathryn[/name] is my mother’s name, so that’s definitely a strong possibility

I like Mayna! Mayna [name]Rose[/name] is beautiful. So is Mayna [name]Leanne[/name]. Have you considered [name]Meena[/name]?

[name]Glad[/name] to hear you like it! We’re kinda smitten with it, think it’s perfect. And it’ll have a great meaning for us in Chinese too (she’ll be 1/2 Chinese), with the exact same pronunciation.
Mayna [name]Rose[/name] was our original top choice, though [name]Leanne[/name], [name]Kathryn[/name] and [name]Lee[/name] all have family connections to them, and [name]Jade[/name] has a connection to where she’ll be born (near the base of [name]Jade[/name] Dragon [name]Snow[/name] Mountain in Lijiang, [name]China[/name]).
