Maira

Maira—that’s MAY-rah, folks—is the Irish variant of the evergreen name, Mary. Because it’s a variant of arguably the most popular girl’s name of all time, Maira also has Arabic, Hawaiian, Spanish and even Japanese roots. It’s a pretty name, but it might be a little too close to Moira, yet another Irish form of Mary.
