Well, coincedentally,

My name is Maya also, and as i grew up it became a more and more popular name, but in my early childhood there was only Maya i was aware of, Maya Angelou, my namesake. I did want to change it also, with it being so unknown, but I'm so glad i didnt and now i wish there were less Maya's in the world.

Maya does NOT means "Princess" in Arabic.

Princess, is (loosely) - Ameera

Maya, means water.
