"I named my daughter Malory, I love it and don't have a problem with the meaning. We are all unlucky at times...there's a lot going on in the world that we inherit from previous generations that people will have to deal with when they grow up. Her full name means "Rise against misfortune"...so maybe she'll be a little fighter." Dec. 6, 2018:

"I named my daughter Mallory Ellynn, she was born in 1987. I liked the name because it was so unique----we didn't hear of a another Mallory for years! People at first thought we named her Valerie.

"My 2 yr old daughter's name is Malorie. We love the name and get many compliments on it being original, but not being a trendy name. People refer to family ties all the time... My daughters characteristics are as follows:very independent, great imagination, mellow/laid back personality. Her nicknames are Mal, Mali, Malicat, Mali-boo... when she's older I am sure Mal will stick... One time someone thought I called her Valorie, but no other mix-ups. I LOVE MALORIE!" Jan. 12, 2007:
"My name is Mallory!! I've only met one other person with the same name as mine. And that was when I was like.. 7 years old in my gymnastics class :) But I agree, when people first ask for my name, they mistake it for Valerie, Hillary, Melanie.. lol. I always correct them, cuz i don't wanna be introduced to somebody else as one of those. I didn't use to like it, cuz i thought it looked stupid written, and I didn't like saying it outloud. But I love it now! And, of course, people always ask me if I was named after the girl on Family Ties :D" Jan. 7, 2007:
"My great-niece is Mallory--she's 16. When my niece first told me what she was going to name her, I thought: This is someone's last name--not first! But, after 16 years, I have grown to love the name and it fits her exactly." Jul. 31, 2006:
"My name is Mallory, and I have been told many times that it is rarely or never heard of. I like my name in general, the only setback is that many times, because of its rarity, people usually think I say "Natalie" or "Valerie" when they ask for my name." Jul. 6, 2006:
"I hear its the most beautiful name. I love it. I'm rather sick of hearing Family Ties references (my mother never heard of the show when she named me) though I don't mind the Natural Born Killers references." Mar. 27, 2006:
"My youngest sister is Mallory and the beautiful name suits the beautiful girl very well. My other two sisters and I have "M" names too but Mallory is still unique." Nov. 19, 2005:

"My name is Mallory Kim, and I am very proud of my name. Sometimes I think my French teacher is calling me out because Mal means 'bad' in French and a lot of people call me Mal. But I'm the only Mallory in my school! I'm not sure how my parents came up with the name, but its interesting that my brother's name is Nick (Family Ties). I like to hope I don't come off as dumb as she does on the show, or as much of a brat as someone else named Mallory in my town is. I love that I have an original name." Nov. 9, 2015:
"I love my name and people often call me Mollery. And my closest friends call me Mal Mal . If I had a girl I'd name her Mallory!" Nov. 22, 2014:
"My name is Mallory. I like how my mom spelled it with two Ls and a y not ie . I've met maybe one Mallory. But I hardly get called by it Iv grown to like my nick name mal mal and for a while I was like okay call me mal mal couse Mallory mean unlucky :( . But it also means warrior. So put Mallory with my middle name Alana ( and yes I like it spelled with all A not E) and you got warrior light. And Alana also means precious so give the name a spin and I'm a precious warrior. Man I love my whole name! <3" Nov. 8, 2011:
"i named my daughter MALERIE no one ever spells it like that,.lol..i named her after juliette lewis in natural born killers i love her,.i did spell it different as u can see,but i also love it cuz it sounds like a comman name like valerie but has a lil twist to it,.." Mar. 22, 2010:
"My name's mallory and i don't really like it cuz it's so common around where i live. i mean i live in a fairly small city and my bestfriend's sister's name is malorie, and another one of my friend's girlfriend's name is mallory. i love my middle name though and at school i go by m.c" May. 6, 2009:
"My name is Mallory and I've had many similar experiences as these other postings... I never really appreciated my name too much, except I have always enjoyed having a unique name. I've met a handful of other Mallorys in my lifetime, but only because I've moved around so much.
What kept me from really liking my name, aside from all the mispronouncing, was that I read it means "the unlucky one" or "the unfortunate one." But every name has many meanings and I do like to think that I am a conqueror of misfortunes, not a victim.
In the end, the name has grown on me. It, like me, is very different from most and yet somewhat familiar to everyone." Aug. 21, 2008:
"It's my name. My softball coach calls me Melanie but i don't mind a lot because i like that name. My parents needed a name that started with an M because my sisters went K, L, and my parents wanted it to go in alphabetical order. I'm not sure how they came up with the name though i've only met one Mallory in my whole life and if i hadn't met her or had that name i probably have no idea it exsisted!!!" Jul. 6, 2008:
"My name is Mallory and I was named after Mallory from Family ties because my mom liked the name. I don't really have a huge opinion only i get called melony and Valerie a lot. thats what gets me angry." Apr. 12, 2008:
"I LOVE MY GIRLFRIEND HER NAME IS MALLORY!! SHE IS SO SEXY AND GORGEOUS AND HER NAME FITS HER VERY WELL! I'M GLAD TO BE WITH HER AND I HOPE I AM FOREVER!! MALLORY'S ARE FANTASTIC! :)" Feb. 4, 2008:
"Thats my name... I dont really like it.. It sounds weird!" Jan. 31, 2008:
"My daughter's name is Mallory Danielle. I love her name. We did not decide on it until she was about 4 hours old, but I have never heard another name that I like as much. People often say "Oh from Family Ties" or "From Natural Born Killers" neither one of them had anything to do with it. I love that her name is so uniquie, not many people have it, but it also doesn't sound like a name I made up." Oct. 22, 2007:
"i enjoy having this name because it is unique. People often misunderstand me though when i tell them my name.They think im saying allie or valorie. When i tell people my name they say.."oh like the girl from family ties"" Aug. 4, 2007:
"I'm a Mallory and prefer it that way. I once met a Mallori, but felt the 'i' felt flimsy and demonstrated character weakness :) I love my name, but wish the Mallory in the Babysitter's Club had been more attractive. She gave a bad name to Mallorys in my opinion!" Sep. 23, 2006:
"My name is spelled Mallory but people often call me mal because that what i go by most of the time. when i first meet people they call me mel or melonie or margirie so i ALWAYS have to correct them. i've always liked my name tho because i dont know anybody with the same name and its different, pluse people are alwasy telling me its a pretty name!" Sep. 12, 2006:
"Occasionally, I hear people calling outf or other Mallory's and I think it is me. It scares me everytime because I don't know these people. I also get a lot of "Did your parents name you after the t.v. show, Family Ties?"" Dec. 30, 2005:
"It's cute, and it will soon climb it's way up to popularity, so hold onto your seats." Dec. 13, 2005:
"My name is spelled "Malorie" and I love it. Most people will spell it "Mallory" b/c it is the standard spelling. A lot of people say they like my name and it is uncommon. I have been called things like "Melanie" and "Marjorie" many times." Jun. 16, 2005:
"I almost never meet anyone else with the name Mallory. Most people say what a unique or unusual name. I love it, it suits me well even if many people spell it incorrectly." Jun. 14, 2005:
