What do you guys think of the name Marley rose for a girl?
And which way is better spelling Marley or Marlie?

ScreamingValenta Wed 07-Feb-18 19:16:02

I definitely prefer 'Marlie'.

MancUnicorn Wed 07-Feb-18 19:24:44

The only way I've seen it is as Marley, for two boys I know. I'm not really sure which I prefer, maybe Marley because like I say that's the only way I've seen it x

Marley Rose is fine.

Marlie doesn't look right to me but then I've only ever known Marley's so it may just be what I'm used to.

ShortandAnnoying Wed 07-Feb-18 19:27:15

Marley definitely brings Bob Marley to mind so I'd go for Marlie or Marlee

I love Rose but Marley just makes me think of the dog from the film, sorry! Not a big fan of double barrelled first names, could be a bit of a pain for the child and sounds a bit cutesy if she wants to be a barrister!

What about Marnie Rose?

YerAuntFanny Wed 07-Feb-18 19:32:20

To be fair all 3 Marley's I've known (2 of them are dogs, the other a 9yo boy) are all named in honour of old Bob and it's the first connection everyone guesses just by saying it so you may be on to something there shortandannoying grin

Marley = dog for me too I'm afraid. Marnie is a good suggestion tho!

helpmum2003 Wed 07-Feb-18 19:33:42

I'm not a fan of Marley but love the Marine Rose suggestion.

Marley Rose...Glee

ChocolateCrunch Wed 07-Feb-18 19:51:04

I only know one Marley, and he's a 7 year old boy. Marnie might be a better option.

RavenWings Wed 07-Feb-18 21:07:19

Marley = dog, Dublin park or singer. If you must use it I'd spell it Marley.

That is surprisingly pretty OP!

Sophisticatedsarcasm Wed 07-Feb-18 21:12:16

I hate the name marnie. I wasn’t intending it as an double barrelled first name just as a first and middle. Thanks for the input guys. I did just check and it is mostly used as a girls name.

Buxbaum Wed 07-Feb-18 21:15:33

I’ve only ever encountered male Marleys.

mirren3 Wed 07-Feb-18 21:17:31

I know a female Marlie, and one male Marley.

Buxbaum Wed 07-Feb-18 21:28:38

I did just check and it is mostly used as a girls name.

Not in England and Wales.

Marley was the name of Scrooge's dead partner in "A Christmas Carol". Jacob Marley, admittedly, but he is referred to as Marley throughout. He also appears as a ghost in the story, so "Marley Rose" makes me want to finish off with "from the dead"!

Unfortunate connotations, I would say.

extinctspecies Wed 07-Feb-18 21:32:40

Marley after the soppy dog in Marley & Me?

Or after the reggae singer?

Both male.

BouncethfOFF Wed 07-Feb-18 21:33:53

Unless you want every dog within a 10 mile radius to come running every time you shout Marley! shock

GreenSeededGrape Wed 07-Feb-18 21:35:37

I know 2 both girls. Better spelling I think is Marlee.

LolitaLempicka Wed 07-Feb-18 21:43:22

I don’t like it all, it has a very ugly sound. It is also very popular with both children and dogs at the moment.

PointlessUsername Wed 07-Feb-18 21:45:35

I know a male Marley and a female Marlee

@Sophisticatedsarcasm it's our my short list for our baby girl if she doesn't suit the one we have planned.

I had loads of comments about it being a dog name but I know it to be both.. I don't see it predominantly as a dogs name atall!

It's a beautiful girl name.. And I think the spelling Marley is the nicest. I when I see Marlie my eyes see it as Marnie, which I see you don't like either!
