I didn't realize Lorraine was a place name; it is a family name for us. I prefer Marin with the accent on the second syllable so that's why the Maren spelling isn't up there. I just don't like the sound of Mira Lorraine but will ponder Marin Patricia. (Patricia is a family name from the other side). I appreciate your input

I LOVE Marin! And I love Mira...two amazing choices. Both were on our initial list.
For the sound of the name, I would choose Marin...it is lovely. But, in reality, I would probably chose Mira. Because of the headache of pronunciation inevitable on your dd of muh-RIN vs. mare-in.
Unless...and I am not usually an advocate of untraditional spellings...have you though of Maryn instead of Marin to get the pronunciation you are hoping for? It seems the likely spelling to get the muh-RIN pronunciation.
