Personal experiences with the name Marshall: | Edit

My husband is Marshall, and he loves his name. It always stood out from the crowd, which he loved. One downside - no personalized bike tags, mugs, what have you.

My 11 year old son's name is Marshall (he is the oldest of 3 boys). To the best of my knowledge, he has no prevailing opinion of his name either way but the lack of personalized accessories is a big bummer. He is very smart (honor roll student), very handsome and VERY helpful, especially to adults.
