I prefer it as a female name. It has a strength & dignity that often exists in surnames while still affording the softness for nicknames like Marlie.

My great-grandfather, father, and brother all have this as a middle name. I love it and think it is very strong and unique. I want to name my son this.

I'm surprised the site doesn't list the alternate spelling "Marlo", and that it is also used as a female name now. A famous bearer is Marlo Thomas, whose real name is Margaret. I know at least two females who were named after her.

I named my son this but left off the e. We always get good comments about his name and think it's pretty unique without being weird. It sounds strong and masculine but not hard.

I sincerely hope Marlowe doesn't turn into a feminine name. With the rise of Harlow, it very well may turn into one. I really detest the fact that it has been made somewhat unisex. It is softer, yes. However, it still strikes me as strong, especially with this spelling.

I like Merleawe for a girl version. It's not on here.

LOVE THIS NAME! If I have a son when I get older I wouldn't mind naming my son this. Marlowe sounds like a handsome man's name.

Marlowe, or MARLO, is also a GIRL'S NAME! :P

It's a great name for a boy; Please, people, don't name your daughters this.

This name is cute and spunky for a girl. I like it. Kinda gives me the same feeling as a name like Paige, Piper, Harper, Reese, or Willow...

Sienna Miller and Tom Sturrige have a daughter named Marlowe Ottoline.

I like it for a girl. Not much for a boy since it's a nature name.
