This name sounds gorgeous. It's stunning. I don't know why I love it so much, but it should be more popular. It sounds so cutesy and beautiful at the same time.
Love it. In my top 10.

My friend Rory, spelled with an 'ie' instead of 'y', is actually named Marjorie. I like the name Rory as it is far better than Marj or Marjie.

My mother named me Marjorie which is a very unique and rare name followed by the middle name of Rose which made my name even more beautiful I think. I was named after my aunt and great grandmother.

It's a bit dated but it's very pretty. I don't like how it sounds like margarine, though.

Mae, May, Mamie, Madge, Marie, Mimi, Miri, Mira and Ree are potential nicknames. I once read "Rory" as a nickname suggestion as well, which I also like. I feel that most nicknames for Mary or Margaret could work for Marjorie.

I love this name, as I do tend to be very fond of most English names beginning with M.
You could call her Margie, Jorie (or Jory? Maybe not this one) or you could maybe get away with nicknaming her Mary.
I love this for all ages, it grows so well.

Marjorie Jacqueline "Marge" Simpson is a fictional character in the American animated sitcom The Simpsons and part of the eponymous family. She is voiced by Julie Kavner and first appeared on television in The Tracey Ullman Show short "Good Night" on April 19, 1987. Marge was created and designed by cartoonist Matt Groening while he was waiting in the lobby of James L. Brooks' office. Groening had been called to pitch a series of shorts based on Life in Hell but instead decided to create a new set of characters. He named the character after his mother Margaret Groening. After appearing on The Tracey Ullman Show for three seasons, the Simpson family received their own series on Fox, which debuted December 17, 1989.

I think Marjorie is a lovely name - but what keeps me from using it is the potential for the nickname Marge, which I think sounds horrid.

Marjorie is an aesthetically pleasing name and I love the meaning "pearl" (from Margaret) and also "flowering herb" (from marjoram). It fits very well into the vintage revival trend without being super popular. It has a long history as a name, which for me is one of the more important requirements. The nickname Jorie is fresh and adorable. I really love Marjorie.

I don't dislike it, but can't help thinking of margarine! XD Still a nice, classic sort of name, though.

My 1-year-old niece is named Marjorie and I severely dislike it. I think the sound of the J is too harsh. Maybe with time it will grow on me.

Marjorie is a tolerable name, I suppose. In my personal opinion, it reminds me a bit of the horrible "butter" impersonator called "Margarine".
Mari is a cute nickname, if one chooses.

This is my middle name. I much prefer this spelling to "MARGERY". I like (a lot) it as a middle name, but I am glad it isn't my first name, as it took me ages to learn how to spell it.

In one South Park episode, Marjorine was the name Butters used when disguising himself as a girl.

This is definitely a better spelling than Margery, but it sounds just as unpleasant. Somehow this seems like an old-fashioned elitist name, even if it isn't one.

Marjorie is my mom's name and I think it's a pretty good name. It's not common, and I think that's good! I like it better than its variant Margery.
