Opinions on Marlowe for a girl?

Lilacpink40 Tue 07-Jun-16 23:17:03

Never heard of it. Sounds a bit masculine.

tinymeteor Tue 07-Jun-16 23:19:34

Definitely unusual but I love it. Think Sienna Miller used it for her kid?

MumOnACornishFarm Tue 07-Jun-16 23:28:51

Love it!

It reminds of that fantastic burn Jean Harlow got from Margot Asquith. "The t is silent, as in Harlow".
Bit of an odd association but it did make me grin

IoraRua Tue 07-Jun-16 23:53:37

Anyway to actually answer the question no, I don't like it.

RortyCrankle Tue 07-Jun-16 23:58:27

I don't like it and can't think of anything nice to say about it.

Place name, surname, not a first name.

Marley yes, Marlowe has an odd ending for a girls' name.

Makes me think of marshmallow.

villainousbroodmare Wed 08-Jun-16 00:16:52

I like it a lot. It depends a bit on your surname.

Christopher Marlowe ring a bell?

Love Marlowe think it's quite a trendy celeb name though?

pieceofpurplesky Wed 08-Jun-16 00:23:08

Place in Bucks or Christopher. Not a fan sorry

DailyMailGOFuckOff Wed 08-Jun-16 00:30:56

What about Malory?

purplefox Wed 08-Jun-16 00:40:15

I love it but it's too "trendy" now for me.

I do love 'M' names though... Mara, Maude, Meadow, Margot

Mclaren37 Wed 08-Jun-16 00:40:16

I really like it. Very cool and much more sophisticated than Marlie/Marley imo. It's true Sienna Miller's daughter is called Marlowe. It was on our long list but we went with Margot - different style - good job as we totally randomly ended up living in Marlowe for a bit smile. So long as you know she will never be 'Marlowe from Marlowe' then use it!

NadiaWadia Wed 08-Jun-16 03:47:34

Marla or Marlie much nicer. Surnames as first names are not very appealing to me, especially on girls. Very unfeminine.

KoalaDownUnder Wed 08-Jun-16 04:13:08

Doesn't appeal to me. Sounds/looks quite masculine.

Prefer Harlow.

Motherfuckers Wed 08-Jun-16 05:33:14

I have a Titi (Aunty) Marlo..
Love love love the name Marlo.... Marlowe not so much as it is very masculine.

SocksRock Wed 08-Jun-16 05:42:14

I know a little girl called Marlowe, I was a bit hmm when I first heard it, but actually I really like it now.

AngieBolen Wed 08-Jun-16 06:26:15

I really like it.

bloodymaria Wed 08-Jun-16 06:28:33

I like it, but honestly prefer the spelling 'Marlow'.

Came on the thread to say just go with Christopher if you want a nod to the author. Then you said the name is for a girl hmm
