Hi all,

What do you think of the name Mars/Marz? I know it isn't very common so I'm not sure what others think of it. How do you think it should be spelt?

Not a fan. It's a chocolate bar

Zoe1983 Sat 25-Mar-17 11:16:38

Just no.

Aridane Sat 25-Mar-17 11:16:39

No, just no. Especially Marz

DaisyBlameless Sat 25-Mar-17 11:17:22

Should be spelled as Mark or Lars.

janniedodger Sat 25-Mar-17 11:17:39

Its a no from me.

Haffdonga Sat 25-Mar-17 11:18:06


Oh dear me no.

It's a planet/chocolate bar in my mind

What about Mario, Mark, Marco?

English people will read it as the name of a chocolate bar or a god of war. Are you from a different culture, OP?

Belle1102 Sat 25-Mar-17 11:18:41

Definitely not. If you absolutely have to go with it then mars is marginally better than Marz

CoolCarrie Sat 25-Mar-17 11:19:31

You would be setting your child up for a bloody awful time at school
What about Marcus?

PacificDogwod Sat 25-Mar-17 11:19:46

März is the German word for the month of March.

'Martial' is derived from Mars, the god of war according to mythology.

Personally, I don't like the sound of what it sounds like, and I don't like the connotations, so another no from me.

Lars is nice though smile

Haffdonga Sat 25-Mar-17 11:20:06

Mars is god of war.

War fan, OP?

Clearly the baby is an accessory to you, hence publicing the oddball name to all. Same school class as Blue Ivy, Kai, Princess et al.

PacificDogwod Sat 25-Mar-17 11:22:01

I just looked it up - god of war as a power to peace, rather than Ares (destruction).

Still don't like it though.

SisterMoonshine Sat 25-Mar-17 11:22:12

It's a lot to live up to, like Zeus or something.
(Oh crikey, don't go putting Zeus on your list now too).

snowgirl1 Sat 25-Mar-17 11:22:43

It's a no from me. How about Miles?

PacificDogwod Sat 25-Mar-17 11:23:10

Portico, Kai is rather a commonplace name in German speaking/scandinavian countries. I know a Kai who must now be in his late 50s/early 60s.
I wanted a Kai but was vetoed by DH grin

Reow Sat 25-Mar-17 11:23:31

Oh god. It's awful.

PacificDogwod Sat 25-Mar-17 11:23:37

Oh, a baby Zeus!! Genius!! grin

FrancisCrawford Sat 25-Mar-17 11:26:18

The only name worse than Mars is Marz, which is a whole new league of bad.

It is not common as a forename in the same way sideboard is not common - because neither are accepted forenames, even if one or two individuals use them for their offspring.

portico Sat 25-Mar-17 11:26:25

Personally, I would scan the DVLA personalised plates, and build a name around that.

GrumpyOldBag Sat 25-Mar-17 11:27:30

A Mars a day helps you work, rest and play.

Just, no.

RayofFuckingSunshine Sat 25-Mar-17 11:27:43

Mars/Marz? Just why?

Cheesecake53 Sat 25-Mar-17 11:29:09

I really like it - both spellings.
