Origin and Meaning

1) The Finnish author Tove Marika Jansson (1914 - 2001) invented this name for her stories about the Mumin troll (Moomin Trolls). [1] [2] [3]

Lilla My (Little My) lives with the Mumin family. She is so small that she can sit in the family's milk jug. My gives expression to a most destructive turn of mind. She is totally disrespectful and can be very aggressive but has nevertheless an extremely positive attitude to life. Sometimes, she may even demonstrate a kind of careless friendliness - when it suits her.

2) My is also the name of the 12th letter in the Greek alphabeth. [1] [2] [3]

3) Creative spelling of Mi (see Mia) [4]
