Maya

Maya is truly a divine name. From its Hindi roots (Maya is another name for the goddess Devi), to its relation to the Roman goddess of spring, Maya is quickly becoming the new cool kid on the name lists. And what’s not to love? It sounds mystical, slightly exotic, and just all-around beautiful.
