I'm obsessed with the name Marlo/Marlow/Marlowe for a girl. When I hear the name, I think it sounds ethereal and would grow nicely into an adult name. However, I'm aware not everyone feels that way about the name and I don't want to burden my daughter with a name that's too masculine. I also wonder if the middle name we've chosen (Rose in honor of a family member) makes it sound too "O" heavy.
What do you all think?
Also, which spelling do you prefere? Marlo/Marlow/Marlowe?

Marlo makes me think of actress Marlo Thomas. Marlow looks like it lost its "e". My favourite is Marlowe (like writer Christopher Marlowe). I like the name well enough and I don't find it too masculine for a girl. Marlowe Rose has repetitive "o" sounds but family significance trumps flow every time.All the best,

Marlow or Marlowe work for me. I have mostly seen it with an E at the end, so I'd go with that.
I would certainly pair is with a super femme name like Rose, even if there's double O sound.
Also there are quite a few Rose names:
Marlowe Rosalie*I think the lee ending balances out the r and o sounds in the first name
Marlowe Rosalind* Love this
Marlowe Rosabel or Marlowe Rosalyn
