Maisie? Maisy? Maisey?

Definetly Maisie. The only version that looks 'right' to me.

I prefer Maisy, like Daisy, but Maisie is more usual, I think.

FranKatzenjammer Sun 26-May-13 22:43:52

I teach a Mazie, ugh. Maisie is the proper spelling.

LynetteScavo Sun 26-May-13 22:41:37

Personally, I would go with Maisy, as in Lennon and Maisy.

LynetteScavo Sun 26-May-13 22:39:02

Maisie or Maysie or Maisy, but not Maisey.

My spell check tells me only Maisie is spelled correctly.

It's Maisie in 'the boyfriend' that's how I've always known it smile

Maisie

Yes, Maisy Mouse! That's why I think Maisy.

The only RL person I have ever met with this name was a girl at school, who spelt her name "Maisie". My mum's dog is Maisie too.

Maisie

Maisie is I think most correct, although Maisy mouse makes me think that's OK too. Maisey is just wrong!

But then I have a Lily (Lilian) who gets Lilly, Lilie and Lillie at times, all of which look very wrong to me, but presumably not to the writer!

Lebkuchenlover Sun 26-May-13 21:34:59

Maisy looks the nicest and most 'normal'.

Maisey/Maisie are too cutesy/babyish imo!

jellybeans Sun 26-May-13 13:57:53

Maisie is nicer.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 26-May-13 13:54:57

I've never seen Maisey before.

Either Maisie or Maisy are the spellings I've seen. I think I'd assume Maisy if I was just told the name and had to write it down though.

sjuperyoni Sun 26-May-13 12:52:39

Maisie - i've never seen maisey it looks like it's been 'cute ified' (real word) as the baby names people love saying ''it looks nicknamey'' wink

My neice was nearly a maisie but ended up a lucy smile

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Sun 26-May-13 12:52:05

Maisie, I thought.

Startail Sun 26-May-13 12:51:37

Maisie is a person, Maisy is a mouse.

Bowlersarm Sun 26-May-13 12:46:13

Maisie

Hummuschocolate Sun 26-May-13 12:42:05

either Maisie or Maisy

lovesmileandlaugh Sun 26-May-13 07:56:30

I agree with Katy and Katie. Catie would never be my default spelling if I wasn't sure!

It was the Lucy/ Lucie thread that made me ponder it!!

AcrylicPlexiglass Sun 26-May-13 07:42:29

It's like Katy, Catie and Katie. All fine.

Minoan Sun 26-May-13 07:33:38

Maisie, I think

lovesmileandlaugh Sun 26-May-13 07:32:03

I thought Maisie, Maisy was made more common by Maisy Mouse.

My DD is called Maisie, but just about everything someone else writes her name on, spells it Maisey. It really bugs me. Just wondered if I had somehow spelt it wrong? (I know I hadn't as the name was pinched from an elderly aunt before I'd realised how popular it was!)

LaChaiseVerte Sun 26-May-13 07:27:46

I think Maisy - Maisie looks more like a nn imo.
