Dd is Scarlett - I have just discovered Marnie and have fallen in love with it! Do you think it goes well? So hard to find something that complements Scarlett, without it being too matchy!

I love Marnie and think it goes really well smile

For a sibling btw.

yeah I think they fit well together

Yes definitely.

Bowlersarm Thu 01-Aug-13 16:43:32

I do.

Will you have it short for anything?

I still need to see what dh thinks, but no, it would just be Marnie - it is a name in its own right.

Love Marnie too. IMO, I'm not sure that it 'goes' with Scarlett in the sense that it's a similar type of name, but it's such a fab name I'd go for it.

I suppose they 'go' in the sense they're both names associated with movies. Are you a film buff? (people may assume so!) I really like the name Marnie but personally would hesitate to use it because of the film of that name but that's probably just me.

I think they definitely have the same vibe. Love Marnie.

They are both lovely names, and yes they do go together.

I don't really mean match - if I wanted the names to match I'd have Saffron or Amber or similar - more to complement one another and not sound at odds with each other.

Both Marnie and Scarlett are gorgeous names, but I don't think they particularly work together, scarlett is very fancy and marnie sounds a bit "everyday" in comparison. However, most people seem to call their kids "the girls" if talking about two sisters, so doesn't have to be an issue! Wouldn't worry too much, both are lovely smile

I think they both sound great. I love Marni!

littlepeas Thu 01-Aug-13 20:02:31

Dh hates it! Back to the drawing board.

Bowlersarm Thu 01-Aug-13 20:08:58

What OP we went though all that...,..
