Thoughts on the name Marcia Joan (first and middle)?

We think we've settled on Simon for a boy (no middle name yet), but haven't managed to settle on a name for a girl.

Thanks! smile

I really like it.

Sophronia Wed 26-Oct-16 11:46:32

I like it too

Lovely smile

Is it pronounced mar-cee-a or marsha? The Marcia I know pronounces it marsha.

Very nice, how about Simon David.

AGruffaloCrumble Wed 26-Oct-16 13:26:24

Very American sounding.

Vixxfacee Wed 26-Oct-16 13:55:18

Awful. Simon is especially bad.

IDreamOfPeace Wed 26-Oct-16 16:53:49

Love it!

It is quite American sounding, you're right. I suppose that's what we go for! grin

I like Simon David, thanks for that suggestion!

It would be prn. Marsha, as that's how people would assume it was pronounced here (not in the UK).

I like Simon with or w/o David, but Marsha is grade-A terrible.

When I saw the title of the thread (in active) I thought it was about a celeb I'd never heard of - like a American cooking show host/chef or talk show host...

still, it's a nice name.

Very nice names, for girl and boy.

I read it in a whiny American kids voice. I'm not sure why

FeliciaJollygoodfellow Wed 26-Oct-16 21:38:27

Dislike all of them sorry.

RiverTam Wed 26-Oct-16 21:40:59

I'm afraid I think that's a pair of very ugly, old fashioned for a reason, names. But MN love those kinds of names so you'll pribsbly get a resounding thumbs up!

Simon David is fine.

It's quite 1950s but also rockabilly. I know an MJ (not Marcia Joan but same initials) who really suits it.

AliciaMayEmory Wed 26-Oct-16 21:59:08

Love them both!

Tryittwice Wed 26-Oct-16 22:25:37

No likey sorry.

rainbow99 Wed 26-Oct-16 23:49:15

Not a fan either - sorry. Both seem very dated to me and not in a good way

I know a Marcia who is 4. She only lasted about 3 months as being known as Marcia before her parents switched to her middle name, because everybody pronounced Marcia differently.

I prefer the Mar-see-a pronunciation.

I also prefer Jean to Joan.

Simon is nice. I only know lovely ones.

EllenDegenerate Thu 27-Oct-16 17:11:36

Oh dear,

Simon is bloody awful. On a par with Keith.

SunnyInMay Thu 27-Oct-16 19:23:04

I like Marcy but not Marcia. Makes me think of martian.

Hmm - all a bit 1970s. Not keen.
