    I also think an obviously feminine name is better with an ambiguous first.
    Mars Ophelia
    Mars Octavia
    Mars Adelia
    Mars Ursa (if your keen on a star theme)
    Mars Iona
    Mars Zepherine
    Mars Victoire
    Don't know much about cacti or icy tundra sorry.

    Good luck.

    I appreciate posts like this. Thank you for the suggestions. The more the merrier mama (me).

    I understand that the name is too masculine for some of you but we really love it for a girl. I don't believe in force feeding gender roles or names for that matter. heh.

    Anyway please keep them coming. I need help.

    Mars sounds masculine to me.
    However, I know a very sweet little girl named Marlowe who's nickname is Mars or Mars Bar. Would you consider Marlowe with the nickname Mars? You said earlier you like gender neutral, Marlowe is very gender neutral. It could easily work for either gender, and imo ebbs on masculine. However, it works on a girl.
    How do you pronounce Io? Mars Io isn't ... good. Echo was a really great suggestion, how about Isla?
    Marlowe Isla is much better than Mars Io.

    Beatrice Flora Jane, Clara Felicity Kate, Rosalie Linnea Tess, Alexa Coralie Eve, Emmeline Alaska Sophie,
    Charlie Jay, Gideon Bruce, Henry Liam

    Also searching for ways to include:
    Adeline, Avalon, Eliza, Greta, Imogen, Isla, Leora, & Winnie.
    Asher, Caleb, Edwin, Felix, Grant, Hugo, Lachlan, Ronan, Rhett, & Wyatt.

    I'm not keen on Mars as fn for a girl-- it sounds very masculine to me. What about moving it to the middle? Xanthe Mars, Junia Mars, etc. Or, modify it a little to Mara, Maris, Marnie, Marcia, Marna, Martha, etc. Maybe Mariposa nn Mars after a type of cactus? Some other names you may like: Cosima, Snow, Winter, Agave, Acuna, Copao, Juniper, Mori, Nopal, Pitaya, Saguaro, Ursula, Cassiopeia, Ursa, Ursula, Neva/Neiva, or Eirwen.

    Mars is a strong, fresh, bold, nature-based choice; I like it!
    How about the following for middles: they're names of stars/comets/galaxies/moons

    Sylvia (also means 'from the forest')
