Just came across this name on name berry, I like it but does it remind you of Darling buds of may?

Never seen/read DBoM so that association isn't there for me. And won't be for new generation I would have thought. It is a lovely name!

Ma Larkin invented the name, so yes

Prefer Marianne

Marietta is a biscuit and Mariette is too close to that.

Yes, it does. Also makes me think of Arietty from The Borrowers. Marianne is nice, though.

Oo, pretty!
I've never heard this name. I watch DBOM occasionally, but have never heard this crop up.

Prefer Marielle or Mariella. Mariette sounds like Mariot (hotels) to me, sorry!

I know a Dutch girl called Marietta. Like that too.

Too Marriott hotels for me!

Instantly think of DBOM I am afraid (although they are lovely books so not really a bad thing)
Arietty is nice too!
