  • "I hated my name I'm almost 50 yrs. But I got so use to it that I just love the short vision my family calls me Marls" Jan. 3, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "The most that I had heard the name was in North Dakota. I agree that it?s hard to make a nickname of it but that?s ok. Only 2 people have ever called me Mar. I pronounce it Marlene but some people think it?s spelled that way. I like having an uncommon name and I am also a natural redhead which is uncommon. So, I am unique and I appreciate that now." Nov. 6, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "I don't think the name Marlene is difficult to spell or pronounced but to my surprise it usually is. I didn't like the name Marlene going up but I'm use to it now and I like that its not super common. I've also gotten a couple of cool nicknames over the years" Jan. 12, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name but many people say marlena my sister was carlene" Aug. 10, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Anita Marlene. I have never met anyone else that shares the same name." Apr. 1, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Was most popular as a given name in the Thirties and early Forties when Marlene Dietrich sang 'Lili Marlene' and various other songs, and was also in the 1930 film 'The Blue Angel' directed by Josef von Sternberg who, I think, had discovered her in the Twenties. Though the name is traditionally pronounced in the German way as 'mar-lay-na', English speakers have over the years pronounced it as 'marleen'." May. 19, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I don't think I've really ever met someone with my name. The only Marlene's that i know of are my teachers parents or grandparens friends. Its mispronounced fairly often, spelled wrong more often than that. The thing that i like the least is that there isn't really a good way to shorten it into a nickname. People have suggested Marley- but i do know a Marley my age and i didn't want to be confused with her (cause she wasn't very nice)." Apr. 20, 2008: Report as inappropriate
