About Mae West

Go back to names list

Mae West (1893-1980) was an American actress whose career spanned 70 years. As one of the more controversial movie stars of her day, she is known for her sex symbol status and her sexual independence. Some of her famous films include “I’m no Angel” and “Klondike Annie”. Unlike ‘May’, the name Mae does not possess a link to the calendar month. However, the two names do share meaning. Both are pet forms of ‘Mary’, hence meaning ‘star of the sea’.
