Marcella sticks out in my mind as the little girl in the "Raggedy Ann" series. It is lovely.

I used to love Raggedy Ann when I was a little girl. Both my mum and I have loved this name ever since. It is an elegant and exotic name.

I have met a Marcella and instead of Marcie as a nickname they used Ella.

Marcella, although old is a very pretty and feminine name.

Pronounced Mar-CHELL-ah in Italy and Mar-SELL-ah by English speakers.

Actually, I am an English speaker, live in the United States, and pronounce the lovely name Marcella as mar-CHELL-la as well. I am not even Italian, either. *shrug* It sounds prettier that way.

Marcella is the mother of Selena Quintanilla. It is a pretty name. I think Marcella would be a prefect middle name.

I don't like this name. It sounds like the name of a mean person.
-- italiannames  12/13/2009
A mean person? I highly disagree. I think Marcella sounds exotic and very beautiful. Different and uncommon too, which is always a good thing. Definitely a good feminine name to consider.

I like the nickname Cella for Marcella. I know someone who's called that.

I was named Marcella after my great grandma. I was mostly referred to as Marcy, but also Celly, Cella, Marce. Now that I am in my 30s I go by Marcella a lot. I have gotten a lot of compliments when I tell people my name. As for someone thinking it sounds like the name of someone mean, well all I know is my great grandma was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. And I don't see myself as mean. But maybe we just are different from the rest lol.

The name Marcella doesn't seem to be very popular anymore. It was only given to 166 baby girls born in the US in 2012. I'm not sure why, it's a pretty name.

I prefer Marcelle over Marcella.

I named my daughter Marchella. Added the "h" to make sure English speakers pronounced it "ch" as the Italians do. No nicknames like Marcy, Cella though. Straight Marchella or Chella Bella only, please.
