I never thought of this as an independent name until proto-mommy blogger Heather Armstrong, a.k.a. Dooce, gave this name to her second daughter. But it does have kick to it.

Personal experiences with the name Marlo: | Edit

I have twin daughters,who are now two years old, named Marlo and Sabine. Their middle names I took from our combined pools of family names and I love how they turned out. So we chose Marlo Amalia and Sabine Luvenia. I can't leave out that the girls have an older brother named Hugo Augustus.
