We have narrowed names for our baby girl down to 2. I know names go in and out of popularity, but I am just curious to know how popular these 2 are at the moment?
So... How many children do you know with either the name Imogen or Mya? Thanks smile

I know three Imogens. One adult and two little girls of about 5 yrs old. Nice name.

I know infant school aged children called Maya and Mia. Two teenagers called Mya with that spelling. Also a Maja and Maia! Both little girls.

the odd Imogen and millions of Maya/Mya/Maja/Maia so much so it has become a joke. I once walked round the PN ward and only one baby girl was not a Maia/Maya/Mya/Maja. It is super trendy because it is nice and works in a number of languages/cultures and it looks less popular than it is because of the spelling variations.

Thanks ladies, appreciate all the feedback smile

The Maya i know is pronounced as in the beginning of 'mayonnaise'.
The Mia is like Meee-a smile

fluffyraggies Sun 28-Jul-13 11:04:46

Mya = to rhyme with 'higher'.

(the one i know is anyway smile )

How do you pronounce Mya? Is it My-UH? MEEE-uh, what?
I know one Maya (MY-uh) and no Imogens.
Imogen makes me cringe, tbh, not remotely pretty in my mind. I can't see Imogen having a sister called Jayde & a brother called Tyler.

No Imogens. Love it though, really pretty.

Mya, Mia, Maya, Maya-Grace, Mia-Rose, Mia-Elizabeth ...aaaarrrgh..thousands of 'em. One particular mother corrects everyone at every opportunity 'erm, its Mayy-ah, actually' when anyone gets the damn pronunciation wrong, they all merge into one common name to me.
