    I hate Marlowe, it feels way too masculine and trendy

    But!

    I LOVE me some Marlene Dietrich, and she makes me just love the name, so she gets my vote. (mar-lay-na)

    I agree with flick, Marlene Dietrich is amazing and so is her name! Marlowe does also seem kind of masculine to me. (Sorry flick, it seems like I'm copying you...)

    exactly this

    and Marlowe sounds distinctly masculine to me because it makes me think of Christopher Marlowe

    Ditto this. Although, upon seeing Marlene, I thought it was prn. mar-LEEN. I've never seen Marlene Dietrich's name written down and always assumed it was spelled Marlena. You might run into that with pronunciation issues, but even so, I like either prn much better than Marlowe for exactly the same reasons as flick.
