    Thanks!! I have never lived anywhere with a marina. Sounds like I better keep that up if I choose this name. Merci!

    What about Mariana, pronounced Mary- Anna or Mary- Ahna. I prefer the later. I think it is cuter than Mariana but still is similar.

    I lived in a fishing town in Alaska where nearly everyone makes their living from the sea. Many, many of their daughters were named Marina (and various other sea-oriented names), so actually she might fit right in if you do ever live near a marina.

    I grew up on a small island (we had two marinas) and there are about ten marinas within twenty minutes of my childhood home. Despite this, or maybe because of it, I love the name. I think it's great and I love the meaning. I know a lot of people that make money from fishing or otherwise working at or around marinas and docks, and I can see where it might be odd for someone in that position, who uses the word fairly often, but I love it.

    I have a young cousin named Marina and behind her parents back everyone in my family asks the grandparents why the parents named their child after a boat yard (in less kind words). Like everyone. They had enough tact not to say it after the child was born.
    It is a very strong connection that we got immediately upon hearing the name. If that's okay with you, then go for it.
