Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

These are suitable names.

1) معاد – Ma’ad means, The place of return i.e. The Hereafter. (Mukhtarus Sihah Pg.643)

2,a) ماعز -Ma’iz means, young or hardworking. Ma’iz was a name of a Sahabi, Ma’iz Ibn Malik Al Aslami (RA).

b) ماﺋز – Maiz means, distinction. (Misbahul Lughat)

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
