I love this name, and currently, prefer this spelling.

BlueLavender Says:


This is actually very much an older spelling - not modern at all. Behind the Name calls it a "Medieval French Diminutive". As a surname, it dates back to the 1400s. I've met more than one "older" person (likely born in the 1920s or 1930s) who has this spelling. Also, John Wayne's real name was Marion Mitchell Morrison - born in 1907 :) In sum, it seems to be a stand alone name, not a modern misspelling. While I quite like it, whether it's good or bad is, of course, purely a matter of opinion.

What a ridiculous misspelling of Marian. How can modern parents come with such awful misspelled names for their children?

This is my baby cousin's name. I think it's adorable and it would probably be one of my favorites if we weren't as close to my cousin..
