I appreciate posts like this. Thank you for the suggestions. The more the merrier mama (me).
I understand that the name is too masculine for some of you but we really love it for a girl. I don't believe in force feeding gender roles or names for that matter. heh.
Anyway please keep them coming. I need help.

Mars sounds masculine to me.
However, I know a very sweet little girl named Marlowe who's nickname is Mars or Mars Bar. Would you consider Marlowe with the nickname Mars? You said earlier you like gender neutral, Marlowe is very gender neutral. It could easily work for either gender, and imo ebbs on masculine. However, it works on a girl.
How do you pronounce Io? Mars Io isn't ... good. Echo was a really great suggestion, how about Isla?
Marlowe Isla is much better than Mars Io.

I'm not keen on Mars as fn for a girl-- it sounds very masculine to me. What about moving it to the middle? Xanthe Mars, Junia Mars, etc. Or, modify it a little to Mara, Maris, Marnie, Marcia, Marna, Martha, etc. Maybe Mariposa nn Mars after a type of cactus? Some other names you may like: Cosima, Snow, Winter, Agave, Acuna, Copao, Juniper, Mori, Nopal, Pitaya, Saguaro, Ursula, Cassiopeia, Ursa, Ursula, Neva/Neiva, or Eirwen.
