I guess it could be okay becuase it is a family name. I only think of the fish when I see Marlin though. Sorry Embarassed

I like Ryan but when I hear Marlin, I immediately think of the movie Finding Nemo.  But…that could just be because I have a boy who loves that movie.  ๐Ÿ™‚

@Mrs.Lotus:  That’s what I thought too, but to me that was a good thing to think of! It makes the name seem cute to me.

Marlon is how the man’s name is usually spelled rather than th fish.

@RedAngelDreamer:  ah!!  Yeah.. when I see “Marlin” I think of the fish, I didn’t even think of “Marlon” the man’s name until I saw your post…

It’s kind of cute and out there though!

I too think of the fish.  I don’t like the association.  Coincidentally there’s a female olympic boxer named Marlen and I never thought of the fish.

What about Ryan Marlin? You can still honor family names by putting them in the middle. ๐Ÿ™‚

I know a Marlin. He’s a great guy and I love his name!

I like eating Marlin, but it is a high mercury fish so I kind of have a negative view of it.  I don’t eat it anymore.

Also make me think of “Merlin.”

What’s wrong with Marlon? A Marlin is a fish, or alternately a sports team.
