I have 2 cousins named Marcia. They both pronounce it Mar-see-uh. I think that's a prettier pronunciation.

I would pronounce this mar-cee-ah, not Marsha. I think it's prettier this way.

This name makes me think of a soap opera character. And it sounds like 'Martian', just like some user pointed above.

My stepmother is called Marcia, and she's Brazilian. I like this name, it's quite different, and I've only ever met one other person with this name, and it's my stepmum's manicurist when she goes to Brazil who is also called Marcia.

In Italian "Marcia" means "rotten". Nothing against the name, simply I don't like it.

All I can think of is "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia" from The Brady Bunch.

I think Marcia is a classic, timeless name. It is nice that a Marcia can choose how she would prefer her name to be pronounced.. Marcie is also very sweet. PS I do not believe that Marcia means rotten in Italian, since Marcia comes from Latin roots which definitely do not mean that. A good contemporary explanation of the name's meaning is "brave."

The Latin pronunciation of this name would be Mar-KEE-ah, with a hard c.

The eldest, beautiful, annoyingly overachieving, and popular daughter, Marcia Brady from The Brady Bunch. "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!" She was portrayed by the actress Maureen McCormick. The name seems old fashioned and frumpy to me, though. It's just so bleh!

Marcia is a lovely name. The pronunciation "marsha" is more old fashioned now. Mar-see-uh is a trendier pronunciation. The name of Canadian poet Dorothy Livesay's daughter. It means someone who is not afraid to stand up for what is right; brave.
