Twin for Marley (girl)

I posted a thread earlier asking people's opinions on the names Marley and Kennedy, and in real life I asked. Not as many people seem to be fans of Kennedy as they are Marley. So, twin girls, any other ideas? Not saying Kennedy is ruled out but I need some other ideas. I like Lilya, River and Blake. Suggestions please xsmile

Marley and Kennedy sound like they could be from Toddlers and Tiaras USA

Fannia Tue 11-Feb-20 19:02:54

How about Kenzie

I like the ones from your ‘like’ list more than Kennedy.

I LOVE Marley for a girl and when I asked on here I just got the usual “it’s a dogs name” comments 🙄 I still love it regardless but j really don’t like the nickname Marls so I avoided it in the end.

I like Marley and River together the best!

River and Blake are really lovely
I don’t like Kennedy and wouldn’t like it to be my name

You seem to like more unusual names
Other fairly unusual names I like:

Clementine (clemmie)
Margaret (Maggie or Peggy)
Cleo
Jemima
Cora/ Coral
Roxanne/Roxanna nn Roxy
Willa

@AliceBeckett
I think Marley is nice, but is very gender neutral and these names would go with it
Fearne/Fern

Keziah
Amelia
Elizabeth
Tamzin
Sofia
Rae
Franes (Frankie as a nickname)
Olive
Violet
Rose
Jane or Jade
Harriet
Mae

Fleur
Belle/Isabelle
Brooke
Alexis
Grace
Paige
Addision
Zara
Zoe/Zoey
Sapphire

My brother's (male) dog is Marley - named after Bob not the shitty movie!

I've known 2 human Marley's - 1 male, 1 female, tbh I prefer it as a female name and I don't automatically associate it with dogs.

Marley and Blake are nice together and seperately although you may get the assumption that they are both male but that's soon sorted when they meet them!

I like Marley and Blake too. Your name preferences seem quite unisex so how about Riley, Spencer, Taylor, Avery?

Mummyeyes Tue 11-Feb-20 19:37:13

Ooh I love the name Marley. One of my favourites. And River.

With Marley I think Layla rather than Lilya.

Twillow Tue 11-Feb-20 19:40:03

Marley and Nico.
Marley and Scout.

Kenzie is a bit chavvy

Kennedy is a bit preppy American (unless you ARE American I wouldn't choose it)

Scout and Marley sounds like a pet dogs names sorry

I love the name Marley and Kennedy.
What about Marley & Mila? Mackenzie? Or if that’s too many ‘M’s... Elyssa? Alaïa?

Absolutely love the name River as well!!

TheOrangeFox Tue 11-Feb-20 19:52:22

River and Blake are gorgeous together. Not a fan of Marley but if I had to choose, Marley and Blake.

Is Lilya Lie-lah or Lily-ya?

AliceBeckett Tue 11-Feb-20 19:57:56

Lil-ya is how i'd say it smile

TheOrangeFox Tue 11-Feb-20 21:54:24

Not keen on Lilya but adore the gender neutral names.

MikeUniformMike Wed 12-Feb-20 15:57:01

I don't like Marley or your other suggestions.
River and Blake are boys' names.

River and Blake are gender neutral names. I know of a Blake (girl) and also River is gender neutral.

Kendra/kendall rather than Kennedy?

I work with a female Kenadee, shes Australian and her name suits her well

Love Marley!
I really like Lyla (probably because it’s an Oasis song)

River sounds nice with Marley.
Not keen on Kennedy but that’s probably because it’s a last name within my family.

Juno, Alba, Nova, Spencer

I love Marley.

Kennedy has gotten quite popular for girls here in the US and I'm not a fan. I like Kensington better oddly enough (although its long!). I dont mind Emerson either. But overall I dont feel like these work with Marley.

To me Marley very bohemian with namesake of Bob Marley so I'll suggest:
Dahlia
Delilah
Avalon
Luna - love this with Marley
Hazel
Mazarine
Marigold
Mackenzie - if you want alliteration I like this
Madeleine
Aspen
Cyrene
Iris
Violet
Jade
Daisy - my face flower one with Marley
Isla
Anya
Jessamine
Isadora
Esme
Seren - also really love with Marley
Vesper
Valentine
