my name is mai too. well actually when i was born my grandpa named me Yia, but then my parents added mai to it cuz they think it sounds cute i think. so now my full name is Mai Yia. Only my parents call me by mai, my grandparents and siblings either call me Yia, or Mai Yia.
I don't like it when u go to a place and you heard people call name mai, but you're not the one they're talking too.
to tell the true...
my mom's name use to be mai See...then she got her old name
my elder sis is mai k.
second sis mai y.
third is me mai nhia

dang i could juss cry out loud i hate my name to tell u guys the truth...i wish i could be those sick peeps who cange their names...that'll be lucky me...
and gay of course my parents called us our middle name hell half of our first name...
Not my name but with my "hmong" name, I'm a mai. The full thing, I'm not sure how to spell..lol. I use to hate it, but now I love it. Of course, if my whole family were mais' (or even if all my friends were) then I'd have a different impression however.
It's just part of the culture. You don't have to like it. Just appreciate it.
my name wouldnt be mai if my parents named me theirselves. back in thailand, we had this one grandpa who lived near us, and he decided to call me mai after this one aunt that i have never met before. he said that with the name mai, i will have a strong spirit and i will always live a healthy life. funny thing because i hardly get sick. its so rare for me to be sick. last time i got a fever was like 8 years ago.
omg my name is mai thao lee...
i dont like my middle name and my mom named me after my aunt cause our family is really skinny(the genes i tell ya) and my aunt is big...so my parents named me after her so wheni grow up i can be big like her...so like yea...but i turned out skinny haha
