Marion was my great great great grandmothers name. She was born in 1854.
i fall more and more in love with this name. It sounds so classic and feminine to me. I prefer this spelling.
This was my grandfather's name with this spelling. That was 80 something years ago.
I love this name, and currently, prefer this spelling.
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..
