I pronounce it MARY-ELLE, well it's my friend's name so actually she pronounces it like that. I think the name's okay, kind of cute but always reminds me of Muriel which is very ugly!

In one of the Redwall books there is a female heroine named Mariel. Her father was killed by Gabool the Wild, but when Gabool attacked her and threw her into the sea during a terrible storm she survived. The mousemaid lived on her own for many days, not remembering anything and deciding to name herself Storm Gullwhacker. She was lead to Redwall, where after hearing a poem, begins to have flashbacks, and remembers everything. During these flashbacks she remembers her father, and how they traveled together on a ship. Her father would say that her name was like the ringing of bells across an open field: "Mariel! Mariel!"

I love that! This name is one of my favourites, and I liked the book too, although I didn't finish it.

This is my name, and I just love it. ^___^
I think it's very pretty, although I do hate it when people say it like MARY-UHL. Ugh. And some pronounce it like MAHRY-UHL, which I don't understand. I agree with the person slightly above this comment, it's pronounced MARY-ELLE.

The main character of the Australian movie "Muriel's Wedding" (played by Toni Collette) changes her name to the more appealing (in her eyes) Mariel in the course of the story, to appear more attractive.

I've been looking at an online list of "Papist recusants" in Yorkshire in 1604, original in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, printed in 1872 (Edward Peacock, comp., "The Roman Catholics in the County of York in 1604", London, 1872).
In the town of Ilkley was a Mariell Hardwick, wife of a Robert Hardwick.
The name stands out, along with Rosamond, among all the more commonly encountered names of that period in the list. I love that, because it shows the name has historical validity. I also love Merrilyn, but by contrast would never use it because it's a 20th century coinage.
