Comments for MARION (2):

A famous bearer was John Wayne, whose birth name was Marion Michael Morrison. Guess that Marion wasn't masculine enough for a tough actor, whose characters were mostly cowboys, so surely he changed his name to the more masculine John Wayne for the silver screen.

I really like this name for a boy, but I wouldn't name my son Marion because of fear of him being teased.

Marion Lee, a fashion designer from Project Runway: Season 4, bears this name. I rather like it on a guy.

Marion sounds too girly on a boy, and yet John Wayne could pull it off somehow. I think this name sounds better on a girl.

This name sounds too feminine for a male in my opinion. I guess because it starts with MARI like Marianna. Not to mention there is little difference between the sound of Marion and Maryanne. It just doesn't cut it for me.

Francis Marion "The Swamp Fox" was a General in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. He was a popular namesake after that. My great great great grandfather was named Francis Marion Rakestraw in honor of Francis Marion.

Also, Mel Gibson's character in 'The Patriot' was modeled after Francis Marion.
