What does everyone think of Marie as a first name, is it too dated?

katiegg Mon 09-Oct-17 18:42:37

I think it's beautiful! Classic but underused.

Chaffinch4 Mon 09-Oct-17 18:43:39

I like it too.

Love it. Such an unusual choice these days.

Littlebatcalledlucille Mon 09-Oct-17 19:06:32

It's lovely!

RhonaRugMuncherr Mon 09-Oct-17 19:07:15

I also like it.

My sister is called Marie (Ann-Marie) but everyone calls her Marie, I've never loved it.

My middle name is Marie. I love it. Was considering Maria for unborn but it's a boy so....

It's lovely.

I really like it.

My cousin is a Maria. Love it.

I really don't like it. It always sounds like someone's forgotten the A.

I think it is very dated, tbh.

Beautiful choice

ChocolateCrunch Mon 09-Oct-17 20:10:31

Prefer Maria or Marina, tbh

I like it but I think the confusion over pronunciation might annoy me.

I know quite a few - quite a lot pronounced Ma-REE, but probably an equal number pronounced MA-ree.

MollyHuaCha Mon 09-Oct-17 20:27:50

Love it when pronounced Ma-REE.

SuperBeagle Mon 09-Oct-17 20:41:04

I think it's dated.

It is a pretty name but I can't read it without hearing Elvis-

Ummmmgogo Mon 09-Oct-17 20:50:06

very unusual as a first name. very generic as a middle name.

SumAndSubstance Mon 09-Oct-17 21:20:26

I love it.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 09-Oct-17 22:45:09

Gorgeous !

Pemba Mon 09-Oct-17 23:01:03

Very pretty

It’s lovely! Overused as a middle name but refreshing as a first name.

PandorasXbox Tue 10-Oct-17 13:49:18

It’s really dated imo. It’s like Angela, Diane, Julie, Karen etc.

Maria is slightly better.
