In fact, it is NOT Mrs. Curie's name. Her real name was MARIA, as she was of Polish origin (her full name was Maria Sk³odowska-Curie) and the form 'Marie' is not used in Poland. I know she is worldwide known as Marie, but as there is 'Maria' form at behindthename.com, there is no reason to spread a non-accurate information like that.

A previous poster was correct in stating that Mme. Curie's name was not Marie but Maria. When moving to France from Poland, she changed her name to Marie to avoid linguistic confusion.

Another notable bearer of the name is Marie Louise Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun, who was one of the most famous female painters of the 18th century.

Even though she is fictional, Marie is one of the two names of the main character in the ballet, "The Nutcracker". My company uses Clara however, which I like much better. Marie to me is just one of those filler names.

Marie Romanov Nikolevna was Anastasia Romanov's older sister by two years. There is a big dispute between scientists about whether or not it was Marie or Anastasia who escaped their family's massacre. Their little brother Alexei (often translated as Alexis) is also rumored to have escaped the gruesome execution.
Also, many people believe that Marie's name is actually Maria, but it is is Marie. Some translations DO say Maria, but I think her name is truly Marie.

As Marie Curie was born in Poland and Marie-Antoinette in Austria, they were both born Maria and became Marie when they came to France. These examples aren't the best ones, I think.

But there are Marguerite-Marie Alacocque, a Catholic saint in the 17th century, or Marie de France, a poet who lived in France and England in the 12th century.

Can't believe no one has said Lisa Marie Presley, only daughter of the late singer Elvis Presley. Also Marie is the middle name of singer Carrie Underwood, actress Jessica Alba (and her daughter, Honor), actress Selena Gomez, actress Katherine Heigl, actress Michelle Pfeiffer, actress Laura Marano, and actress Jane Lynch. Safe to say it's pretty overused as a middle name.
