Mariel (like a blend of Marion and Muriel, with no syllable particularly stressed)





or something else entirely?

I would pronounce it Marry-Elle.

Marry-elle, I think it's very pretty

nice name

Maybe because I used to know one (spelt differently) my first thought when I read this was Marry-Ella. I think that's wrong, but was my initial.

Marryelle here too x

I always thought it was said mary - elle (to rhyme with the Little Mermaid)

I like it so much more than Mariella. Mariella bit too twirly wirly but Marielle perfect.

Mirella is a prettier name that Marielle.

GinSoakedMu1berryLush Wed 12-Dec-12 07:43:08

Well, that name is not the same at all. Doesn't have that based-on-two-classics vibe. I like Mirabel though. And Maribel. Not Mirella though. I like Meryl though. That one is due a dusting down.

Thanks all. It sounds like the Marry-Elles have it!

Mariel reminds me of Muriel's Wedding.

Marry Elle here too.

Another Marry-Elle.

heliotrope Wed 12-Dec-12 11:46:02

marry elle, with emphasis on elle, rather than

Mariel (as in Muriel's wedding) which has emphasis on the marr. Marr - ee - el

Marry-elle. It is beautiful. Possibly biased as my DD's is very similar.

As well as the pronunciation tips, there is some nice feedback here for which, thank you.

I think it's a very pretty name as well- it's on the shortlist....

It's pretty, I don't generally like a's on the end of names, but Mariella also works well.

Too much radio 4, Mariella Frostrup is in quite often and I've always thought it was a nice name.
