    The Name Mary

    WDYT of Mary? Boring and overused or cute and unexpected on a baby?

    I don't particularly like it much as a first name, but I think paired with a more original first name it would make a beautiful middle. Something like Acantha Mary, maybe.

    Hmm...
    Mary is lovely. She's a classic like Jane which used to be overused but has dramatically dropped in popularity to the point where if I stumbled across a little baby named Mary I would honesty be surprised. I used to dislike Mary but her quiet humility and elegance has really won me over. She's just such a simple, elegant classic.

    I think Mary would be a surprising and refreshing classic choice for a little girl. I would throw in an exotic middle name for fun -- like Mary Anatolia.

    I really like Mary. I don't think it's overused these days. I've only met a couple of people by that name and no one under 30. I would also pair with something longer and more exotic. I like Saracita00's suggestion of Mary Anatolia!
