I love Marlena. I'm naming my doll that I'm buying Marlena. It's such a gorgeous name!

Marlena was the girl who blew up in Cloverfield. Even so, watching the movie, I was struck by the beauty of the name.

Marlena is currently my second favorite name. Marlena Diamond was Lizzy Caplan's character in Cloverfield, and Marlena was also a character in Sara Gruen's bestseller "Water for Elephants".

My name is Marlena (but I'm known to everyone as Marley). It's pronounced "mar-LAY-nuh". I think that's the most common English pronunciation.

I like it. It's feminine without sounding ditzy and frilly. It also sounds like the name of a girl who is nice and down to earth. I don't like how Christian it is, though.

I love the name Marlena, it's so gorgeous and pretty and can be shortened to Lena, which I love as well. Also Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is an awesome, recommended book too. Awesome name!

I hate this name. I knew a really nasty girl named Marlena who always made fun of my clothes, and I can't see this name without thinking of her.

This is my name and it's pronounced (Mar-LAY-nah). I think it sounds more elegant that way.

I love this name, so beautiful and sophisticated. I prefer the Mar-LAY-nah spelling, but also like Mar-LEE-nah.

There's a song by The Wallflowers called "Three Marlenas" on their 1996 album Bringing Down the Horse. In the song, the name is pronounced "mar-LAY-na." That's how I've always pronounced it as well. A beautiful name and a beautiful song!
