In the JewishGen archives, I just found posts dated October and
November, 2000, which discuss the names Maze, Maisie, etc.
The (female) first name Maisie is still found in Great Britain: I
remember reading a novel which takes place about 100 years ago in England
where Maisie is the name of a young Jewish woman >from an immigrant
family. Shortly afterwards, I found the name Maisie for a real person. (I
don't remember who it was.) And finally, included among other real people
is Maisie Mosco, an English writer.
