May Name Days

The name of the month comes from the Greek and Roman goddess Maia, mother of Hermes. Her name derived from the Greek μαια (maia) "good mother" which was used as a respectful term for married women, and also could mean "midwife" or "nurse". The Greeks often identified her with the goddess Gaia "earth", giving us the sense of "Mother Earth", while the Romans identified her with the Bona Dea "Good Goddess" and Fauna. May has been used as an independent name in Britain since the late 19th century. It had developed in the previous century as a pet-form of Mary or Margaret, and was popularised by Princess Mary of Teck (later Queen Mary) who was known as "May".
