I like it spelled as Marion for a girl, but this is wonderful too.

Similarly to Alanna, Marian is so strong yet feminine. I love the reference to Maid Marian.

I have used my middle name for years, but very recently decided to refer to my
first name, Marian. It is softer and it honours my grandmother, Mary, and her mother, Anna. They both died before I was born. My aunt was born Anna, but after a high fever that wouldn't break, my grandfather out of desperation, asked the gypsies for help. They told her parents to change the girl's name to a compound, with three syllables and 6 letters. Anna became Marian. Then the gypsy gave her some herbal concoction and her fever broke the next day. Love the family story. Proud to honour my ancestors!

I've loved Marian for a long time - mainly due to my fondness for the legend of Robin Hood. It's such a pretty name without being too frilly.

I know a man named Marian, in French it can also be used as a masculine name, though it's not very popular as far as I know.

This was the real name of Scottish hero William Wallace's wife. In the movie "Braveheart," they changed it to Murron in order to separate the character from the English hero Robin Hood's wife.

Marian is my best friend's name and she isn't really sure if she likes it, but I personally like the name. It has a pretty and calm and kind of overall feminine suond to it, all graceful and such (mind you, I'm describing the name, not my friend xD).
