Personally, I think this name is pretty, but sounds a little bit silly. It makes me think of the sea.
Very beautiful name, definitely prefer over Maria!
I adore this name, it sounds like a lovely spell when you say it and fits perfectly with my eastern euro mutt heritage. I'd love it at least as a middle name for a daughter if we have one.
Absolutely gorgeous. It sounds like a mermaid to me. ❤❤.
Marina is the name of a sweet pink octopus villager in the Animal Crossing series! It's also the name of Luke Triton's wife in the anime Layton Mystery Detective Agency: Kat's Mystery Solving Files.
Also Arabic.
Also Indian.
Also Armenian.
Lee Harvey Oswald was married to a Russian woman named Marina!
It seems to be a common name for Orthodox Christian women.
I like this name a lot. It's very pretty and not common at all. It's on my list of potential names for girls. It reminds me of the character on the show Fresh Beat Band and the band Marina and the Diamonds. Both amazing associations.
I prefer it over Maria. It's not as common and sounds nicer.
One of my favorite names of all time. It's classic, mysterious, serene, mythical & timeless. I just think it's simply gorgeous! Mari, Rina, Mars, Mimi are cute nicknames, but honestly this name doesn't even need a nickname. I'm not bothered by the boat docks because there are worse things for a name to be associated with. When I think of Marina, I think of the calming sea, the beautiful sunsets over the beach/ocean & mermaids! I also love that the name is multi-cultural.
Pretty! I quite like it!

So beautiful.
I quite like Marina, although in Spain it is a super common name. I think I have met four or five Marinas in my entire life and as many famous and "influencers" with the same name. But I love the sea and I love the meaning of the name. Much better than Mary or Marilene. If you prefer, in Spanish sea means "Mar" and it is also a name, which is often accompanied by a María del Mar. They are just options.
Marina is a mermaid from the children’s show Jake And The Neverland Pirates.

Also Hungarian. According to them, considered both a feminine form of Marinusz and a form of Mária.
I prefer Marena.
Soo pretty! And I love the meaning!
So pretty and underused. It also reminds me of the octopus villager from Animal Crossing. I much prefer this name to Maria.

I love this name.
So beautiful!
I love this name! I actually love it so much that I'm planning on legally changing my first name to Marina LOL
It's fitting because I was born near the sea and have had a love for the ocean and have had a connection to it my entire life.
My zodiac sign is also a water sign so I like the personal connection the name has with me.
Also the pronunciation of the name works perfectly with all the languages I speak in and in the multiple countries that I reside in so as a global citizen it's nice to have a versatile name.

Marina is a name, in my humble opinion, that sounds very pretty and conjures images of the placid coastlines with warm summer breezes that add effect to an oceanscape setting. The only issue I can see would initially be the possible teasing from a reference to the other "Marina" (A location for docking boats). Other than that, I would definitely recommend this name for someone who might like the ocean or use a name that one barely hears on a regular basis that is unique as this one.
"Save It For A Rainy Day" by the Minnesota band The Jayhawks is about a woman named Marina. Not a very flattering song at all, but nonetheless, a very good one.
Marina is a beautiful and unique name which means coolest person in the world. Growing up with the name was very frustrating in the sense that people will always make fun and laugh and at some point, I wanted a change of name, blaming mum and dad for having given me such a name. Later got to know more about the name and am so happy. I always get recognized quickly because of my name.
So gorgeous.
Marina is a beautiful name, and Mari and Rina would make nice nicknames!
Marina is a fictional pop artist in the video game, Splatoon 2, as a part of the group Off The Hook, along with her less admired group mate, Pearl.
This is a BEAUTIFUL name. I like that it is not common or over used. Any female would be blessed to have this name.
My name is Marina, and I love it! I used to live along the coast in the United States. People never really associate the name with boats. They usually associate it with mermaids. In fact my nick-name growing up was Marina the Mermaid. It's not that popular and so people may mistake your name for "Maria" or "Marissa". It's a little annoying, but I love my name because it's special and unique. I heard in studies that people with unique names get noticed more for colleges and jobs. So that's nice. Whoever is looking at naming their little girl or character this name I think you should. :)
My name is MARINA and I love my name. I've only met one person with my name so far. But I think it's beautiful. I love it and wouldn’t change my name for anything. It’s funny, one person commented that it reminds her of a beautiful woman with long hair. I have really long hair. And I hope I’m beautiful, lol. Loved her comment.
My daughter's name is Marina and I love it more as she grows! My husband liked the name Marie, and I suggested Marina as a longer name that could be shortened to Marie, plus I liked the sea connection. We ended up nicknaming her "Rina" since it suits her better than Marie. Rather than a "place to store boats," we've heard it more associated with Mermaids, which makes me even happier. I really love my daughter's unique name.
Sounds more unique than Maria, and somewhat prettier.

Marina Aleksandrova, born Marina Pupenina, is a Russian actress and model.
I am named Marina and quite enjoy the name. I have met a few others but happily not that many. My boyfriend calls me Rina. It's a nice name that gets a lot of compliments but also gets confused with Mariana sometimes. I love the meaning especially since I really love anything to do with the ocean and swimming.
I know a girl called Marina-Arielle, but she goes by Rain. I think that Marina is a good name.
Beautiful name. My first thought is always the "Pebble & the Penguin" character!
Marina was a song by Rocco Granata (real name of the singer!) in 1960. It was a big hit in Germany and put Marina in the German TOP 30 baby girl names for the only time.
Everyone seems to have a delicate image of the name Marina, but I see it as sturdy, tough sort of name. I've known a few Marinas, and all of them were very no-nonsense kind of people. My brother's fiancée loves this name, and they'll probably name their daughter Marina, if they have kids, so I wouldn't use it for my daughter, but it is a very beautiful name.
I think that Marina is a beautiful name and if I were to have a daughter I would name her that.
This is a name that I have loved for a longgg time. =D I would deffo name my daughter this.

My middle name is Marina, after my grandmother (kinda.) My mom wanted my first name to be Emma, or Marina if I was a girl. If I were a boy, I would have been Emmett or Elliot or something like that. ;) I think Emma Marina sounds really good together. It also combines a overused name with an underused name.
This name is ok, but I prefer Maria. It just seems prettier.
This is a gorgeous name. I only know of good associations in people who have this name; Marina Diamandis, Marina Abramovic.
A Marina sounds sophisticated, elegant and quite exotic. I imagine a more Greek image when I hear the name. I would definitely recommend this name. Especially now, before it becomes overused and unlikable, because I'm pretty sure it will be, one day.
This is OK, but after reading a book where the "bad guy" (actually a lady) is named Marina, it's not as appealing to me any more. I didn't like it that much to begin with. :)
Marina reminds me of a beautiful Eastern European woman with long flowing hair. I don't think it works on anyone else.
My name is Marina Mercedes, and I've been bothered about being "named after a car" and I've heard "hey, my dad parks his boat on you" all my life. This name isn't the kindest. But it does go well with the name "Sierra". That way it's the mountains and the sea.
Singer/songwriter Marina Lambrini Diamandis is a bearer of this name. Her rock band is called Marina and the Diamonds. Her mother is Welsh and her father is Greek.
Meaning in language: in Finnish Marina means "whining".
Marina is Finnish for kvetching.
I liked this name a lot when I was younger. I took it from the name of a boating company. But now it just sounds too related to fishing/boating/whatever. It's even close to 'Marriott' which I think has something to do with that. Still pretty though.
This name is super sweet. I can't help but love it. It suits anyone.
My name is Marina and I have always loved my name! It´s feminine and different, delicate and strong at the same time. Growing up by the ocean in a sunny city in Brazil I´ve always made a great association between my name and the water. I´ve lived in the US, Germany, France, Austria and Canada and people always comment on how unique my name is.
Beautiful, simple, underused name. Makes me think of a beautiful view of the sea at sunset.
Actress Marina Sirtis. She's best know for her "Star Trek: The Next Generation" character "Counselor, Deanna Troi", for the entire 7 season of the show, as well as the four movies made since the show stopped in 1994.
Marina is my mom's name and I think it's very elegant and good name.
My name is Marina. I must agree that it is a beautiful, delicate, and unique name but it does not suit me at all.
It reminds me of a small, little dainty girl and that is not me. Physically and mentally this name does not describe me at all! Maybe I would like it if it wasn't my name but because it is I'm not so crazy about it. I never got picked on about my name, and that is good, but there are nearly any nicknames with this name. I would like people to call me Ree (maRIna) but no one does, so I guess I'm kind of stuck with this name!
One of the most gorgeous and most prefect names in the entire world! I wish it was my name!
I really like my name. People seem pleasantly surprised by it and usually remember it. I like how very feminine it is just like Catherine or Elizabeth are so regal.
The main character of Pedro Almodovar's film "Tie me up, tie me down" ("Atame") is called Marina. In the spirit of Almodovar's films, she happens to be an insanely gorgeous porn actress who is nonetheless persuasively delicate, vulnerable, wild and brave.
It is used in Croatia too.
Marina was the name of the mermaid in the 1975 anime movie 'Andersen Dowa: Ningyo Hime'.
My name is Marina and I have been proud of its uniqueness all my life. There are only 2 people in my life that I have met that share my name. I think it's the most beautiful name ever.
I also really like this name. It's one of my top 10 names and I think it sounds pretty. However, read my comment about the masculine form, Marin, as well.
I think this name is actually quite pretty. It could work in English usage too. It currently sounds more like the name of a slender, pale, dark-haired, gorgeous woman of Russian or East European heritage, but maybe it will become more common for people born in the US etc. It's quite common in East Europe and Russia, so I wouldn't want to use it.
Marina is the main character in John Marsden's book So Much To Tell You.
On the Soap Opera Guiding Light there is a character named Marina Cooper played by Mandy Bruno.
Also a girls name in Slovenia.
I love the Marina but I don't like this name. Maybe it's because all of the Marinas I've known have been bratty, and it turned me off to the name.
Beautiful name, and it's the name of Matt LeBlanc's daughter.
Marina is an elegant and feminime name. Beautiful!

This is a very pretty name for a girl. I could see why the 'place for boats' connotation might put some people off though.

My name is Marina and I very much like it! It sounds delicate and beautiful.
I really love this name. When I 1st heard it I was like ...hmm boats and stuff. But the ocean hides many many beautiful secrets, and it glitters, and the beautiful fish that are in it. Marina is a really really gorgeous name! I'm going to name my child Marina. Marina and Serena - but they're a bit too alike. lol.
Vividly beautiful and underused.
If you love Maria but dislike how often it's used, Marina is a great variation. Such an elegant name!
Marina Pearl is the name of Matt LeBlanc and Melissa McKnight's daughter.
The name Marina does remind me of a place to keep boats, but in a good way, I think it's a pretty name.
My daughter is named Marina and as we live in an area famous for sailing I was concerned that people would associate her name with the marina that has the boats in it. This doesn't happen. People associate a name with a person. You don't think of a bird when you meet someone called Robin.
Marina means "of the sea."
Marina is the name of the daughter of Pericles in the Shakespearean play, "Pericles, Prince of Tyre."
I have always loved the name Marina and would consider it for my as-yet-to-be born daughter, but my husband thinks it sounds like a place to store boats. A problem for a little girl growing up?
