What's your first reaction to Marielle?

EllenDegenerate Tue 07-Jun-16 22:37:15


Considering it now actually but surname starts with L so Mariella more likely.

Wonderful elegant name - one of the most fantastic women I know is a Marielle, she is glamourous, witty, and straight talking.

Does the meaning of "bitter" put you off? Should the meaning carry that much weight?

Lilacpink40 Tue 07-Jun-16 22:38:56

Haven't heard of it before, but have heard of Mariella. Both pretty names.

It's a really pretty name.

Beautiful name!

MumOnACornishFarm Tue 07-Jun-16 22:53:14

Lovely! I've never come across it. I can see it working for a beautiful little baby, and also for a woman. So many cutesy girl names must be hard to live with past 10 years of age. The meaning wouldn't put me off at all, most people would never know anyway. I'm considering Salome for a middle name and people go nuts over the associations that has. hmm

Are you planning on a A or Elle ending. A friend is called Marielle and she is routinely called both.

nectarini1983 Wed 08-Jun-16 20:16:28

Prefer Mariella.

(My phone autocorrected to 'Marie llama' ha ha!)

Vriksasana Wed 08-Jun-16 21:38:27

LOVE it.

BettyCrystal Wed 08-Jun-16 21:41:10

I knew a Marielle, with the nn Mimi. Which I think is lovely!

rollonthesummer Wed 08-Jun-16 21:42:30

Like! I also like Marietta.

I know one under 3. Close friend's DD but I must confess that I dislike the way it sounds - looks pretty written down but there it ends for me.

HazAlways Thu 09-Jun-16 22:53:44

Ive got a Mirabella, beautiful name.

EmmaWoodlouse Fri 10-Jun-16 16:33:50

I've like it for a long time - I've always thought it looks and sounds a very "happy" name.

BrightandEarly Fri 10-Jun-16 19:03:17

It was our second choice for DD1, who is named something very similar. So love it!
