Gender: M Meaning of Marlowe: "driftwood" Origin of Marlowe: Variation of Marlow, English

With Marlo and Marlowe used recently for high-profile celebrity baby girls, we'd say this English surname, however it's spelled, is losing its muscle for boys -- especially as it sounds exactly like the all-girl Marlo. The similar-sounding Marley, inspired by the dog, has been another recent hit name for girls.
