I cannot believe this name isn't in the top 1,000 in the US. It is very strong but not overly complicated or pretentious, suits men and boys of all ages.

This is such a handsome, masculine name. It's quite common in South Africa where I live though. Nonetheless, I think it should be used way more in other countries.

I saw a 1952 Les Miserables movie and Marius was pronounced MAR-ee-OOS. My mom and I laughed so hard at that.
EDIT: it was a dumb movie and probably not accurate, so I wouldn’t use this pronunciation.

It’s a pretty good name, along with the Les Mis association which makes it extra special. If you’re going to name your son after a Les Mis character, this is the name for you. He’s the only male that doesn’t die, because they had to kill off Gavroche, of all people.

OOS -> like "oops!" without "p" :)

MA-REE-OOS! MA-RI-US!
