    My sister's called Maya.

    There's no rule which says that names have to have a meaning, though. Just Google it for ideas.

    Maya: Means illusion in Sanskrit. In Buddhist tradition this is the name of the mother of Siddhartha Gautama (the Buddha). This is also another name of the Hindu goddess Durga.

    Maya: Variant of Maia. In Greek and Roman mythology she was the eldest of the Pleiades, the group of seven stars in the constellation Taurus, who were the daughters of Atlas and Pleione. Her son by Zeus was Hermes.

    Maya: Derived from water in Hebrew.
