Marianne or Maryanne - which do you prefer?!
I've recently been pondering adding Marianne or Maryanne to my list. My middle name is Mary, and my twin sister's is Ann, so I think it would be a nice way to include both me and my sister in one name.
I know some (very few) people, who consider Marianne to be a different spelling of Maryanne, and pronounce them both as Maryanne. I pronounce the two differently. To me, Marianne = mah-ree-anne, whereas Maryanne = mair-ree-ann. (I'm sure I'm not alone in that).
Taking that into consideration, Maryanne would be the most logical name, as it is my MN plus my sister's combined. Simple as that. (I prefer the spelling Maryanne to Maryann, even though my sister's MN is spelled Ann).
However, I think I prefer Marianne, and that still works right?! After all, Marie is simply a form of Mary, so it would still be including my name wouldn't it?
I'd love your thoughts on the names and which of the two you prefer.♥ Margaret Mary ♥

I prefer Marianne (marry-ann). I knew one at school, she was nice, and then there's also the 'Sense and Sensibility' character.~Boys~

I prefer Marianne over Maryanne...but I am a bit biased considering Marianne is actually my name. And I do love my name by the way. However, I will point out that I pronounce it the same way as Maryanne. And I've never had anyone pronounce it any differently. I'm not saying you can't pronounce your child's name as Mah-ree-anne, but I honestly think you're gonna spend a lot of time correctly people.
