Comments for MARLIS:

One famous "Marlis" I know of is Mark Mizzark, who went by the pseudonym Marlis Pugh (he was a rapper with Another Bad Creation, for those of you who don't know of him). And as far as pronunciation goes, it's "Mahr-lease" - or at least, that's how my name is pronounced.

This name is also used in The Netherlands - in fact, it is the name of one of my grandmother's sisters. She pronounces her name as mahr-LIS (the -lis sound is similar to the pronunciation of the name Liz, except it ends on an -s instead of a -z).

My name is Marlys. It is pronounced Mar-liss. I have never been able to find the origin of my name since it is not listed as Marlys anywhere. I know my family come from Norwegian descent, but I have seen it listed as Jewish, German, etc. Does anyone really know what origin it is by chance? I was named Marlys after my grandmother with and she lived in Minnesota growing up. Any info would be interesting.
