My brother is best friends with a very nice boy named Peter. I think it's a great idea for a middle name Solid and, like you said, well used in English literature. It definitely feels like a 'forgotten' boys name. Though there are probably loads of them out there, I've only met three: my uncle, my brother's friend and my uni friend's little baby.~Boys~

I love Peter. It's my brother's middle name. Growing up, he and I would call each other Pete and Vie ("vee" from Vanessa, my middle) as our special, only-for-each-other nicknames. Peter never fails to make me sentimental, and both Peter and Petra are under consideration for my next kiddo.
Anyway, Peter is a lovely classic, one that retains some youthfulness and a bit of whimsy due to its associations. It's a great match with Marian.----

We love Peter! First of all, I just love it in general. Peter was one of my first favorite boys' names--I remember swooning over it in high school. I used to imagine all the most attractive guys had to be named Peter, lol. But I think Peter is great for the criteria you're looking for--such fun literary associations (och, I can just see one of my boys pretending to be High King Peter, bossing his sisters around!), and it has that same "normal" feel that Marian does. I think it's fab, really.Lise
