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.Current Name Crushes;Girls:Arya Grace, Ayla Elise, Zahra Rosalie, Lydia CalliopeNora - Jorja - Esther - Vivian - Lydia - Calliope - Hera - Wren - Eleanor - LyraBoys:Zephaniah, Soren, Ezra, Cohen, Landon, Elijah, Malachi, Seth, Reuben, Ezekiel, Zane, Joel

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!Lilibeth Pearl - Odette Lysandra - Allegra Snow - Zinnia Ophélie - Hera Magdalen
