I've thought the same thing too, about Maya being a fantastic name for a girl, though I always sorta wondered what my future/potential daughter would think when she found out she was named after software.... :p

Better than calling her Houdini or Softimage...lol

Though if you wanted to be a bit "Hollywood", Modo might work!

sweet Mike!

i cracked up laughing at your suggestion dango and gster! halarious! maya and max, and if you do have a third child it can be named xsi :p

friend: "my parents gave me my great grandfather's name"
mike's child: "my parents named me after software"

your child can take pride in the fact that its parents are more original than other parents if you named it after software

I'm pretty sure my wife would object to naming our child after a piece of computer software! Thanks for the suggestions though.

You know Mike, that would actually be the perfect family unit - a boy named Max, a girl named Maya, and dog named Modo!

Congratulation!
