    Marjorie - too clunky?

    I've found a new idea to gain ideas on Victorian style names - the list of passengers aboard the Titanic. I was doing research on my great (x4) aunt and found some wonderful ideas.

    In the past, I've always turned down Marjorie, but I'm feeling more and more drawn to it. The combination I found was Marjorie Charlotte, which I'm not sure on.

    What do you think, is Marjorie too clunky and old for a girl to pull off now?

    I have also been drawn to Marjorie lately. I only like this Marjorie spelling, rather than the Margery version.
    I think the J with the IE ending softens it a tad.
    I would pair Marjorie with a middle name that doesn't contain any Rs.
    Marjorie Estelle maybe.

    Marjorie Charlotte is very sweet! I think it's fine, but if you think it's too hard to pull off Charlotte Marjorie is pretty, too!

    @ashleyjuliette - I feel the same about Marjorie/Margery. Margery looks like margerine for me, haha.

    @polina - I'm still on the fence, haha. My neighbour is named Marjorie, but she's like 70 something, so I'm not sure if the name can get past that stage. I love Charlotte Marjorie too though!
