Do you like it? Only problem I see is explainIng it's got a gap in it or not. Want to know if others like it. Thanks.

Mary-Jane can be street slang for Marijuana

SavoyCabbage Sat 05-Apr-14 07:04:15

It's a shoe.

When I was growing up, it was what we called our vaginas. I know a child called Mary-Jane, and I have to say I do think vagina almost every time I see her.

DaftSkunk Sat 05-Apr-14 07:06:41

It makes me think of shoes.

UnexpectedItemInShaggingArea Sat 05-Apr-14 07:07:33

It's a shoe. A really, really nice shoe, but still a shoe.

Love the name Mary on it's own.

I have a friend called Mary-Jane. I love it. She is super cool, she does get called MJ a lot. I like Sarah-Jane and Marie-Louise too. Good luck.

What about Mary Margaret, I think this is such a beautiful name. Would have called Dd this but was vetoed. Really wish I'd used it.

My mum is Mary-Jane.
She's neither a shoe or a vagina grin

Mary-Kate is gorgeous, timeless & elegant would prefer to Mary-Jane. Love Mary on it's own too, definitly overdue a comeback!

LumpySpacePrincessOhMyGlob Sat 05-Apr-14 11:18:29

I wouldn't, It's slang for Marajuana or a shoe.

elliebe13 Sat 05-Apr-14 11:20:36

No, it means weed.

Anjou Sat 05-Apr-14 11:23:43

I too think of marihuana and then shoes but also of Mary-Jane (MJ) from Spider-Man. If you really love it, focus on the Spider-man connection. ��

The heroine in a Ladybird book.

Floggingmolly Sat 05-Apr-14 11:31:59

circa 1940.

Mrswellyboot Sat 05-Apr-14 11:32:31

Why not just Mary

Then as a middle name I would go for Claire

Meglet Sat 05-Apr-14 11:38:43

You can't call a child after a drug.

BNmum Sat 05-Apr-14 11:40:02

Mary is lovely. I'm with lechers, Mary-Jane is what we called our vaginas and for that reason I wouldn't use both names together.
