  • Name advice from Jennifer Moss,
    founder of BabyNames.com

New name: Maeva

Hello Jennifer,

I love your site! I also enjoy reading your “Ask BabyNames.com” section, and today I am going to ask my own question.

I really enjoy French/French Canadian names such as “Coralie”, and sometimes browse popular Quebec names to get ideas. One of the popular baby girl names in Quebec is “Maeva” which I think is beautiful. However, you don’t seem to have it on your website. Do you happen to know its meaning?

Thank you,
Jacqueline

Dear Jacqueline,
Maeva does have French roots, however it comes from Polynesia/Tahiti. The name Maeva means “Welcome” in Tahitian. Thank you for the name addition, we have added it to the BabyNames.com database.

Sincerely,
Jennifer
