麻郁 is a girl's name.

It could be pronounced a number of different ways, and the only way for you to tell in a given situation would be to ask the person whose name it is.

I think that most Japanese would want to read it as まゆう, but it could also be pronounced まい, まや, あや or あい.

The first character, 麻, means hemp, while the second character, 郁, means perfume.
