Personal experiences with the name Marlee: | Edit

I named my daughter Marlee and love the name, it is fun, unique and beautiful just like her, however almost every time I say her name someone will say "As in Bob?". The nurse in the delivery room asked what we were naming her, I said Marlee and my doctor looks up and says, "As in Bob?" she wasn't even one minute old! So while it is a beautiful name that both she and I love, be careful, it is often connected to Bob Marley, and as she has gotten older some of her friends have even nicknamed her Bob. I have nothing against Bob Marley, but he was no where near my thoughts when I chose to name my daughter Marlee.

Named my daughter Marlee, and she gets alot of compliments on it. Its a easy to say, fun and sweet. And like the above posting we mostly go by mars (or mars bar) I think it has a real 1930's feel to it. I would add that you do end up getting a lot of...."its a dogs name" comments, probably even more so than bob marley.
