I am searching for meanings of the female name Maya in Arabic and Farsi. Can you provide various possible meanings based on different Farsi spellings which could be equivalated as Maya in English orthography? Please provide the Farsi spelling for whatever meanings you suggest. I have a text source which suggests the name in Farsi means Maya: "Do not come" and "a woman's name" Maayah: root, principle, wealth, King Faridoon's cow (I don't know who King Faridoon is) ---I am guessing this is a male's name I suspect the female name may be connected to the word meaning alcohol/intoxicant (as in mai khaaneh), and a reference to spiritual intoxication. An online Persian baby name site gives the meaning of the name as "flower" but I have no dictionary source to confirm this. Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
