Comments for MAREE:

I know one woman named this, but she prefers people calling her MAH-ree, not Mah-REE. She says she gets both from people, but she stresses the first syllable, whereas I don't know any Marie that does that.

"Maree" looks like an uneducated person's spelling of "Marie"; it's a terrible rending of name that was fine to begin with.

I really like the name taken from the French word for "tide". I agree a little with the person who argued that the spelling of Maree looks "uneducated" - like the plethora of "Khrystel"s and "Braedynn"s and "Kymberlee"s out there. Using Maree as a form of Marie is a little too spelling-creative for me! But I find Marée to be beautiful, so maybe I'm just a big hypocrite! Though I do believe that with the accent over the first e, the pronunciation would be "ma-RAY", not "ma-REE".

I personally like this spelling better, because when you tell someone your name is Marie they don't really have an interesting reaction, but when they see how you spell it, then they are interested. Although I agree it sounds a little trendy or whatever, it's definitely not as ridiculous as Kayte or Krystal. My sister's name is Lillian Maree, and everyone - including me - loves it!

On the album Fly Like an Eagle, by the Steve Miller Band, there's a song called Sweet Maree.

If you're going to spell it the French way, Marée (acute accent over the second "e"), it would be pronounced "mah ray," with equal stress on both syllables.

This is my middle name, though I'm not fond of it; it seems too waifish and petite to me (though Marée strikes me as being a prettier, and exotic, name). But it would be perfect if Maree was used as a forename and paired with a stronger name.

It sounds like an uneducated bimbo who can't spell the name Marie worth a darn. Awful name!

Very common spelling of Marie in Australia.

As someone else has said, this spelling is common in Australia. Perhaps it should be listed as English (Australian and New Zealand).

This awful spelling ruins one of the most beautiful names in the world!

Funny how one letter can make a name so much more visually pleasant. Marie looks so pretty, but Maree is just ugly.

My middle name is Maree (Australian spelling) and although as a name it sounds quite simple, spelling-wise it looks much more interesting and prettier than Marie and you get a different reaction to it too.

This looks kind of like it would be pronounced Mary. It could also be a (horrible) alternative to Mary.

My mum gave me this spelling because it seemed unique at the time. But it seems many parents had the same idea! Now Marie seems more unique and I also think it looks classier.

The name Maree is not an uneducated person's spelling of the name Marie. In Ireland the pronunciation of the name Marie is commonly MAH ree with the emphasis on the first syllable. I was named for my aunt Marie but to distinguish between us my name was spelled Maree and pronounced with emphasis on the 2nd syllable. Maree has been around for well over 50 years and is the common spelling in Australia. It is also the spelling in Latvia.

My name is pronounced MAH-ree, not Marie. I correct people daily on how to pronounce my name.

Loch Maree is a very beautiful and unique lake in north west Scotland, surrounded by some of the last ancient Caledonian pine forest.

Nothing to do with common spellings there, simply the long standing name of a very special place.
