  1. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May three years ago so Mae felt like a month of rebirth and redemption.
    It also means pearl which our precious daughter is, a jewel

  2. It’s always been my favorite name, since I was really little. I always knew my first daughter would be named Mae. We found out that it can actually be short for Mary, which is another name I like, so we named her Mary and will call her Mae.
