Meaning:Star of the sea
Maymie is a girl’s name of Latin origin. An unusual styling of Mary, it can be interpreted as “star of the sea.” One of the moniker’s most celebrated bearers is Maymie de Mena, an American-born activist, who became one of the highest-ranking offers in the Universal Negro Improvement Association. Quickly rising through the ranks, she became a leader to watch out for in the pan-African movement, since becoming responsible for increasing its presence in the Caribbean and Latin America. In addition to this, she advocated for women’s suffrage, birth control rights, and economic equality. Seems like she really took being a star too literally! If you too would like the next generation to say something similar about your little one, choosing this moniker will prove to be the best gamble.
