  • "My name is Marjorie, was born in 1979. Apparently the name was popular in Latin America, where my mother is from. There are many Marjorie's in my age group from there. Unlike here where it is rare to meet a Marjorie. People call me "Marj in Charge", M (just the letter). As a kid though I did not like it, I used to be called Margarine."

  • "Love my name. Named for an aunt that died as a teenager. So sad. Thus the Marjories I met along the way were 20 years older than I. (1947) In the 70s there were a lot of us in commercials and we were always the smart one who use the right product. I always want to say, "That's Lady Marjorie to you!" Everyone here seems to dislike Marge, but I think it sounds like someone who knows what she's doing (and I do)." Apr. 28, 2015: Report as inappropriate

I, too, don't like Marge but am called Margie or Marjie.... however, when someone calls me Marjorie, I feel like it is an old Victorian Princess'name....! It is a shame it is not used more but maybe that makes it all the more special." May. 5, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Marjorie. I have accepted it most of my life and embraced it for awhile as I'm older. I was born in 1950 and my mother's name was Margery although she was never called by the name. I don't care for "Marge" but lots of folks call me that..it's OK. I prefer the spelling, Marj. When folks get to know me some spontaneously call me "Margie" and I love that b/c I know it means they love me!! I do love when people call me Marjorie b/c it shows a respect for me as well as the elegant name." Apr. 16, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name (it's a combo of my grandmother's names--Margarita and Jorgia--so no "e" to be found) and love it even more now that I know how rare it is for women born in the 70's. Only a few people can get away with Marji; and that's only if it's spelled with a "j"... Otherwise, I'm quite fond of "Jo" as my nickname. =)" Dec. 21, 2009: Report as inappropriate

I also have another relative, a great-aunt named Marjorie Reynolds, a movie star from the 40s whose most popular flick was "Holiday Inn" with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. Pretty cool, huh? I have enjoyed my name and all the nick names that have come with it. I mostly go by Marji or Marj - I tend to refute spellings with a "g" in them. So, hello all other Marjories! Hope you have a blessed life!" Nov. 25, 2009: Report as inappropriate

I feel lucky to have my name as it is unusual, especially for my generation. I'm not one of the many Jennifers and Sarahs and Kellys and Jessicas. Those are all beautiful name but so is mine. But I'm rarely in a room with another Marjorie." Mar. 21, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hate it. People cannot pronounce it let alone spell it and then we had Game of Thrones with a Queen but they had an unusual spelling of it. Family calls me Margie or Margie Anne. I don't understand how it could be used in Spanish because none of our maids could begin to pronounce it. Senora Marlli was about as close as they could get." Oct. 22, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "I've always hated my name. It never seemed to fit. I've been called everything from Marjorie, to Marjie Jo, and the dreaded Marj, which reminds me of a frog on a rock. Not to mention that it rhymes with "large" and "barge!" Many years ago I changed it to MJ, which is much more comfortable! I've even used several pseudonyms. Anything but Marjorie!"

  • "I was born in 1959 and the name was rare when I was growing up, but I knew from my family background that it was not so unusual in the former British colonies and some Latin American nations. It's taken until my later adulthood to appreciate the character of the name. It sounds like a woman of substance." Nov. 2, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "Mostly i like my name. It's my middle name but i have always used it. Much better than my 1st name. However people constantly mispronounce it,so when i am out and someone wants to know a "name for the order" or "your party" i always give one of my daughters or the name of someone else in the party because it's easier."

  • "My sister's name is Marjorie. She was named after our grandmother. When she was little we called her 'Margie' - it was an adorable name for an adorable little girl. That changed to 'Marj' as she got older but when I found out she didn't like that I reverted to Marjorie. Now a lot of her friends, as well as her husband, call her 'Maggie', which I still can't get used to." Jun. 18, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was born 1996. And I've always hated me name. No offense but I feel like an old person when I'm called by my name. My first nickname was in 7th grade my friend started calling me Marge it stuck. Most people still call me that. Some call me Margy or Jo. And I hate it when they can't pronounce it some guy can't even say Marge so he calls me M. But worst of all it's when they call me Maria or margarita. How does that make sence? I hope I learn to love my name 'cause now I hate it." Jun. 26, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am named Marjorie, 1972. Constantly hated it as a child, especially Marjie and now Marj. It is constantly spelled and said incorrectly, like above someone mentioned Majorie, ugh! In high school I got mad at a sub teacher who couldn't get it right and finally said just call me MJ. It stuck. I never knew anyone with the same name until after high school graduation. A ninth grader had the name and two new people at church. Only my father is allowed to call me Marjie. I was named after a TV show called "My littel Marjie" which I think was changed into Gidget. And it goes with my middle name which is after my grandmother." May. 17, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "It's not the easiest name to live with and I would not recommend its use. I go by Margie, but that's not much better. I've always include my first, middle and last name with my byline since my middle names adds a pretty touch to an otherwise, old lady, outdated sounding name. The name was outdated even in the late 50s and 60s so I could never understand why my parents would choose such a name for me. People tend to call you "Marge," which is really awful, especially for beautiful, young women who are named Marjorie/Margie. I've used my middle name professionally in the past simply to avoid being called "Marge," "Maggie," "Magorie," "Majorie" etc... People also tend to mis-pronounce Marjorie or Margie. I'm always having to correct people who will call me Marge, Maggie, Marggie, ect...it goes on and on....It's been a constant frustration in my life and although I've always been very popular in my community and never a day goes by without guys of all ages flirting with me, I still feel that the name has been a stumbling block. I am always trying to find a way to change my name, but changing one's name is hard to to. I'm still working on some strategies on how to do this. In the meantime, I just live with it and try not to think about it too much and just focus on the positive things in life. Wish I could be more positive about the name, and believe me, I've tried, but in all honesty it's a problematic name." Jan. 17, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Name is Marjorie, but i was born in 1991, I've been in search for the true meaning and orgin of the name Marjorie so I could realize the social aspect of how popular my name was in the 1940's compared to my birth year. I am glad to say that its rare to know someone else that have my name, but i percieve that what makes me unique. I turned Marjorie into a name with a meaning of determination, perserverance, creative, outgoing and loveable." Sep. 1, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm a Marjorie, born in the late 70s, named after an elderly aunt. I hate that it gets misspelled "Majorie" all the time and I have to constantly tell people how to pronounce it. I wish it had better nickname options." Jul. 15, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I can see this name on an old lady and occasionally a middle-aged woman, but I don't really see it on a 1970s child, let alone a child of today. It sounds a bit dated to me." May. 1, 2008: Report as inappropriate
