    What do you think of "Marius"

    And what would be a awesome middle name for it?

    Marius is one of those names I really want to like a lot, but instead I have a rather mediocre perspective about it. It sounds too much like 'marry us' to my ear. If I met someone with this name, I'd probably think it was kinda cool, but it's not a name I'd ever choose myself.
    As far as middle names go, I think a classic, solidly masculine name would probably work best, perhaps of the one syllable variety.

    Honestly, I love this name... it reminds me of the character in "Les Miserables"... Marius John, Marius Edward, Marius Reid, Marius Alexander, Marius Hugh...

    I like Marius a lot, but don't love it. It reminds me of Les Mis, as well. I like the suggestion of Marius Hugh, although it might be too much Les Mis, with Marius being the character and Victor Hugo being the author... Marius Arthur, Marius Owen?

    Good luck!

    I'm a huge Marius fan. It's strong and romantic with a wonderful continental flair. I don't mind the Les Mis association, but it's not why I love the name. I do love Les Mis, but I do think the name might be a bit more usable (in my mind) if the character were not also in Les Mis. In any case, Marius is definitely on my long list of boys names. You can even see him in my signature below! As you can see, I have Marius paired with Owen right now. My creative juices aren't flowing right now, but I'll continue to try to think of more.
    Loving right now:
    Eulalie Catharina, Beatrix Eveline, Cecily Morgana
    Ivo Marius, Euan Casper, Remy Nathaneal, Crispin Adair
