Baby is sure to teach you a thing or two about parenting, so let her name be a nod to her importance. Maja, a Greek name, means "mother" and is an alternate form of Maia. In Greek mythology, Maia was a beautiful nymph and mother of Hermes, the messenger god. In Roman mythology, meanwhile, Maya was a goddess of spring who inspired the name of the month of May. As an Arabic, German, or Scandinavian name, Maja can mean "splendid"—a fitting name for the little one who has added so much value to your days.
