Sanskrit for "illusion". Also an appealing female name, which sadly was not used in The Matrix.
Female:"My name is Maya"
Male:"So you aren't real?"
Female: "Now I really hate my parents.."

Get a Maya mug for your cousin Vivek.
A female who is often in a sprightly mood, particularly when exposed to the raw sound of choir boys singing. Some would say she's often magical, musical, wonderful, empathetic, connective, and often overly sexual. Her use of comedic relief is valued by all. And her lofty soprano tone sounds like the far off twinkling of the fairy bells of neverland.
That shit was soooo maya, i can't wait to do it again

Mayas are beautiful, smart women who are always caring. Mayas don't like it when people are mad and always try to make them feel better. Mayas don't like to start drama.
Theo: I'm in love.

Henry: With who?

Theo: Maya, of course.

Get a Maya mug for your barber Jerry.
Someone who is shy around new people. Once you get to know her though, you'll discover she's a great person. Big time closet freak. Maya's don't usually stand up for themselves, they use subliminal messaging alot, and are annoyed easily. Not the sharpest tool in the shed (Though she thinks she is), can get a bit whiny, but once you meet a Maya, you won't forget how cute she can be.
Hell, she's a fucking Maya

Get a Maya mug for your bunkmate Beatrix.
A type of octopus which spends most of its life sleeping. It grows long black hairand has the ability to shapeshift into a human. However it can only stay in human form for 21.93 hours at a time so if you have a friend with long black hair named maya who doesn't like sleepovers, you should watch her very carefully...
Hey maya! Want to come to my sleepover this weekend?

Uhhh... No thanks, I don't do we'll at other people's houses.
