I like this, reminds me of the names Mary and Maria. Good second name.

The name looks like 'marijuana' and that's not a good thing.

It may look like Marijuana, but not everyone finds that to be a bad thing. ;)

I know this is a little weird to say considering it's my name, but I really like it, living in England, I don't get made fun of, which is a good thing. I have this name because I am part Lithuanian. I also find the look of this name quite pretty. Also the name is said Mah-Ri-Ya, to clear any confusion.

The Lithuanian of this name is pronounced Mah-ree-ya.

It is a great name but MARIA sounds better to me even in Croatia, where I live, Marija is used more often than Maria.

Oh. Thank goodness it's pronounced like Maria. The problem is, people will misspell it.

Maša is a diminutive of Marija in Slovenia and Croatia. [noted -ed]

I don't think people would misspell it if you use it in countries where it is common. The J in place of a Y is very common in many countries (ex. Maja, Freja, Lilja).
