My name's Marion and I used to detest the name, but now, I'm actually warming up to it. It's not very common, but it sounds quite beautiful. I like the sound of it on a boy.

French actress Marion Cotillard, who garnered numerous accolades (including the Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role) for her portrayal of Édith Piaf in La Vie En Rose, inspired my fondness for the name. ♥

It's not such a bad name, but somehow it always makes me think of unpleasant women. I've heard of some Marions who haven't been very nice, but the people have escaped from my memory, as they haven't even been memorable people. Maybe someone could reclaim this name for me.

I really like this name- but I'll always associate this spelling with Shawn Marion, who was recently traded from the Phoenix Suns to the Miami Heat. I much prefer a more feminine spelling, like Marienne, or something like that.

I used to not like this name at all, but after seeing La Vie en Rose starring the lovely Marion Cotillard, I started to warm up to it. Now I just adore it.

Though "Behind the Name" lists Maid Marion as Robin Hood's love, her name was actually *Marian*--the English form, influenced by both Mary and Ann. [noted -ed]

This is such a more fashionable option compared to the boring Mary or Miriam. I love it.
-- Dawson  12/4/2010
I always thought it was odd that this name is gender neutral, since it is a form of Mary. But I've warmed up to the idea of it being a masculine name as well.

One of my favorite fan artists was named Marion. She had a terrific web comic I used to follow. She never got to finish it...

Marion sounds courageous and beautiful for a girl, but I just can't get used to it for a guy. It has instant associations to "Maid Marion" who, let's face it, is the epitome of womanhood. There is no masculine sounding nickname for it either- no wonder "The Duke" changed his name.

Marion Eleanor Zimmer Bradley was an American author. She is best known for "The Mists of Avalon".

A famous Marion was Marion Davies (1897-1961), born Marion Douras, a silent film actress. Nowadays she is best known for her long relationship with newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst, or unfortunately as the inspiration for Susan Alexander in Citizen Kane. However, she was a successful and talented comedienne best known for her role in 1928's Show People, and I find it sad that she's been misunderstood over the years.
