We asked our users to find a name for our mascot, the pigeon. 46 suggestions were submitted in 4 months. Thanks to all for participating.
It turns out the name we liked best was also the most voted: Maily.
We liked it because there’s “mail” in it, it sounds cute and it means something in Mandarin. More on that below.
It beat these popular suggestions :
- Emilja (e-mail-ya)
- Wysijap (what you see is just a pigeon)

Maily sounds like Mei Li in Chinese
Jonathan, one of the four partners, tells me Maily sounds like mei li, the Mandarin word for pretty or beautiful.
He knows because
he’s married to a lovely Chinese girl he studied Chinese, and not because he’s married to a Chinese.
Speaking of Chinese, did you know we have a Mandarin translation of Wysija? A friendly user called Michael did it.
Maybe he could tell us if the Mei Li pictogram is in the translation. Michael?
