Japanese monikers have so much to teach those who carry them, and Mao is one of many to inspire your tot. Traditionally given to girls, the name Mao is a short and sweet selection whose main component, ma, means “true,” “real,” or “genuine.” Depending on your choice of kanji characters, it may also refer to something “raw” or “pure.” Learning to be true to yourself can sometimes be easier said than done, but Mao is a lovely moniker to give your little one a head start on that important life lesson.
