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. ♥

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.

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]

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.

Marion like Maid Marion in Robin Hood! I really like Robin Hood and Maid Marion is my favourite character. Her real name is Marion Fitzwalter, but people called her Maid Marion/Maiden Marion. I like the idea she was the daughter of a Barron (I don't know which)
