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.
My middle name is Marlee, as a combination of Marie and Lee, my grandmas' middle names. Essentially everyone but me has loved it since I was a baby. There was a very short period of time where I loved it, but then I saw the movie "Marley and Me" Trust me, don't name your daughter Marlee if you plan on ever showing her that movie, every other person who has the name marlee and has seen that movie (that I've talked to, so not a ton of people, but still) agrees with me
