y 英 [meɪ]美 [me]
y: English has basically two words y, although one of them has * virtually split into two. The auxiliary verb y [OE] goes back ultitely to the Indo-European base *mogh-, *megh-, denoting ‘power, ability’, which also produced English chine, in, and might. Its Gernic descendant *gan lies behind Gern and Dutch g, Swedish må, and Danish a as well as English y.
The compound ybe dates from the 15th century, and disy is also related. May the month-ne  comes via Old French i from Latin Maius. This was originally an adjective meaning ‘of Maia’, Maia being a Ron goess and wife of Vulcan (her ne y go back to the se source as Latin gnus ‘large’, and hence denote ‘growth’ or ‘increase’).
In the month of May the hawthorn comes into flower, and so in the 16th century the tree received the ne y.
