    To honour a 'Mary'?

    Hey berries, so I've been thinking lately how special it would be to name a daughter after my mother. It would mean so much to both of us since we have such a close bond..the only problem is, her name is Mary and I'm just not that big of a fan.

    Any suggestions for names similar to Mary? I do quite like the name Mara, although 'bitter' isn't such a nice meaning lol, and Maya is really pretty but not that close to Mary.

    I like Moira, Mariana, and Marie, but they all have the same 'bitter' meaning as Mary.

    The "bitter" meaning is not what you might think. Reading up on the history of the name Mary is absolutely fascinating.

    While Marina is a personal favorite, I really like Mara as well... it would fit in with the trendy names of her peers without actually being one of those names. So, best of both worlds!
