Maisy is a girl's name of Scottish origin. A variant of Maisie, it acts as a adorable nickname for the Gaelic Mairead and the Greek Margaret. Translating to "pearl," this can be ideal for a bouncing bundle of joy comparable to a priceless jewel of the sea. Maisy has the kind of timeless lilt that makes it modern and chic, but with a distinct touch of whimsy. Since it's connected to Mairead or Margaret, Maisy can pay tribute to members of your family with that name while giving baby their own individual title.
