So, what does Mayra mean?

Thats one of the first questions everyone asked us after Mayra was born. To tell you the truth, we didn't really think about a meaning before choosing her name! Quite unlike most Indian couples who pour over the world wide web to pick baby names from a zillion sites. And Kunal, Mayra is staying by the way. There is no way this name would be changed. :P

I had thought of the name way back; actually around the time it dawned on me that Rashmi was the one I would spend the rest of my life with. And thats how I conjured up this name:
MAYRA = MAYank + RAshmi!

I had always pined for a beautiful baby girl... And wishes are answered as you can see.

"So, what does Mayra mean anyway?"

Well, we did it the other way round. We sought for the name meaning after choosing the name. And surprise, surprise!! Mayra does have meanings - 3 of them which quite pleased me!!!

Latin Name

Flourishing; creative
Spanish Name

Spring, The wind
Australian-Aboriginal Name

Its a beautiful name after all! And to top it all, I'm not sure if any other girl in India has that name... Mon amour - Mayra
