well, i have a dear friend named Morwenna and a daughter named Maya so i like them both
When we named our daughter we didn't live in an english-speaking country so it wasn't a popular name at all, and we got a lot of strange comments about it. I think the US is more accepting of foreign, unusual, or invented names than other places are, though.
what it boiled down to was this: i grew up with an unusual name (Marnie) which is constantly being mispronounced, to this day. Make it worse by the fact that my last name is actually a woman's first name, and a far more common one than Marnie, so everyone gets my name backwards and wrong.
my husband grew up one of 6 people in his class with his name. one of three in his apartment building. he loves it. he says that every time he meets someone with his name it's like he's met a long-lost brother.
while we haven't encountered a ton of Maya's since moving to the US, we have encountered some. it's waning in popularity, and there are more 8 and 9 year old Mayas around than 3 year old and younger. probably because people are afraid of the popularity.
It suits our daughter so well, though, and with my husband's perspective i've learned not to be afraid of a "common" name. it's the person who makes it unique, anyway.
Either way, you can't go wrong. But i do think you and your husband have to agree.
