It makes me think of my grandmother whose name is Marie. 🙂  She’s the only one I’ve ever known.

I think it’s a nice name if that’s what you want to go by.

I don’t have any strong feelings about it. It’s a standard/professional name.

That’s my mom’s name…so er…

and trust me, with Marie you’ll get lots of variations of pronounciation as well…..

I think Marie is a safe, traditional name that most people are familiar with and don’t have objections too.  If you like it, do it.

It is the middle name of seriously 70% of people I know.  That is my only thought on it.

I don’t know, I think I’d rather have a more unique first name?

I love the name.  I have a horribly unusual first name and I always wished I had changed it to Marie or Jennifer.

What other pronounciations are there for Marie?

I associate it with a middle name because I know a TON of people with the middle name Marie.

I think it would be a great career name. In my experience, it is easier to call someone with an easily pronounceable name, and people are more likely to return your calls. I used to use my formal name at work which is hard for people to understand and recently switched to my very americanized and easily recognizable nickname. The difference has been amazing. People can say and spell my name for the first time!

I also don’t have any preconceived notions of the name since it is so  classic.

My middle name is Marie too…People constantly think it’s Mary.

As for changing to Marie, I think it’s a perfectly good name, but not memorable. I guess it depends on what you’re going for by changing it.

I think like 3/4 of my friend’s middle name is Marie, or they used it for their kid’s middle name. I don’t hear it much as a first name though.
