Thoughts on this name?
Gross? Old fashioned? Definite no-no? Or due a comeback?

Due a comeback.
Lovely name

It's lovely! I have a good friend called Maria. She does get people singing ‘How do you solve a problem like Maria?' sung at her occasionally (all of them thinking that they are the first to think of it!) but it's still a great name.

I really like it. Dd2 has it as a middle name, it was high on our list for a first name.

Dd1 has a friend called Maria - now early twenties, is often called Mia.

A bit old-fashioned, but OK.

"Mariaaaa, you gotta see her"grin

Fab name, although I'm going to say that as it's my middle name and my 17 yo dd's smile

If it makes you feel better, my dd loves her middle name and always uses it e.g. When filling forms out .

KatOnATinRo0f Sun 17-Apr-16 20:23:04

Hmm, that's more positive than I was expecting!

Ciggaretteandsmirnoff Sun 17-Apr-16 20:26:09

It's my middle name
It's my mil name
It's my Dh grandmothers name


FluffyPickleMonster Sun 17-Apr-16 20:35:16

I like it and think it's due a comeback. It's pretty, I like Marie too.

Traditional Catholic name. I think of West Side Story rather than The Sound of Music.

isthatmytshirt Sun 17-Apr-16 20:51:27

Love it. The youngest one I know is early thirties, but I think it's beautiful for little girls smile

(and now a little sad I didn't have it on our list when we were naming our daughter last year wink )

nectarini1983 Sun 17-Apr-16 20:53:57

Really like it

Sophronia Sun 17-Apr-16 21:41:04

It's a beautiful name

DramaAlpaca Sun 17-Apr-16 21:42:01

Lovely name.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sun 17-Apr-16 22:10:11

Definitely due a come back. I wish I'd have thought of it for DD. I couldn't even use it for a subsequent DD as dd's name is Molly, so would both be variations of Mary.

Summ3r Sun 17-Apr-16 22:13:14

I love it and I've been trying to convince dh to name our baby Maria June if this ones a girl

Clawdy Sun 17-Apr-16 22:38:47

Always loved that name - "Say it loud and there's music playing....say it soft and it's almost like praying......"

cornishglos Sun 17-Apr-16 22:44:08

We considered it but decided it was a bit too religious.

SuburbanRhonda Sun 17-Apr-16 22:47:02

Love it smile

squoosh Sun 17-Apr-16 23:28:44

I like it. Marie on the other hand sounds a bit sad and limp.

Bit like Julia v Julie.

JessieMcJessie Sun 17-Apr-16 23:41:40

Very very Catholic name and ubiquitous throughout Latin America.

NadiaWadia Sun 17-Apr-16 23:45:49

Beautiful, as is Marie.
