"My name is Marnie. It's so cool to see so many people who share the same name with me!" Mar. 2, 2016:
"My name is Marnie. I am called Marnie, MarnieKate and Marn by a couple of people. Of course I wanted a more popular name when I was little, but now I loove my name. I am Hebrew and in Hebrew it means Rejoice! It's the Eng. equivalent of calling a girl Joy I guess and it is very fitting. Love love love the name:)" Mar. 28, 2015:
"I am a MarnEE. It is mispelled ALL the time and pronounced wrong as frequently. My reciept at Caribou says "Marty" half the time. I love my name!" Oct. 20, 2014:
"My name is Marnie. I rarely meet anyone with this name. When I was growing up the movie "Marnie" by Alfred Hitchcock use to come on and my mother would say "Marnie! Your movie is on". Back then it would bother me, now I laugh about it. When I was about 11 years old I wanted to change my name to Christina, I knew a Christina when I was growing up and thought she was pretty and smart. For a while I wanted my parent's to call me this. They said I could change it after a while if I tried it on for 'size'. I realized this name was not for me and went back to Marnie again. Many people still call me Marty or Marnie and I have to correct them and sometimes spell it for them. Accenting the "knee" lol. Sometimes I point to my knee after the "Mar" lol. My grandmother felt she wanted to makes me feel special, so she would call me Marnie Baby and create a Marnie's Day for me. That did make me feel loved and very special. I am still very grateful for her. Now, every once in a while I see the movie "Marnie" and want to just watch it so I can hear Sean Connery say my name. I love how he accents it, sounds very lovely. I am older now and love that my name means "rejoice" as well as flower that grows on the side of a mountain in the middle of the winter. I truly appreciate it more now than ever. Thank you for this chance to express this." Jun. 5, 2014:
"I was born I 1968 and my name is spelled Marnie. I'm so glad my mom chose this name for me. I LOVE IT!! It is becoming more popular but I feel I am one of the originals. It was difficult growing up and not finding your name on the key chains while on vacations but now that I'm older I LOVE IT!!" May. 23, 2014:
"My name isn't "Marnie" it's "Marney" i'm fifteen years and i am proud to be granted with this name. i oftern get called Barney just for laughs and i just play along. My teachers at school call me Marn which is cute. I do agree with the others, and how people second guess on how you spell our name e.g Marney, Marnie, Marni. Which i'm now immune to. Be proud girls, represent our name with pride and pasion. x" Jan. 4, 2014:
"My name is Marnie. It often makes people do a mental "double take". "Your name is what???" It is mispronounced...but who cares...at least it's not run of the mill. I like the name and I own it. :)" Dec. 3, 2013:

Mar. 16, 2013:

"i gave my daughter the name marnie. She was born in 2008. I got the name from my maternal grand mother - my mum is called margaret and her mum called her marnie from she was a baby right up til my nana died. I have loved the name all my life and as soon as i found out i was pregnant the baby was a girl. I get jealous when i her the name mentioned simply because i never heard of any others until i had my daughter. I live in the UK." Feb. 26, 2011:
"My name is Marni - my mum came up with this name cause she heard it on TV and loved it. I`m born in the `80.People always have a hard time pronouncing my name- I don`t get it - what is so hard about it! It`s always misspelled! I use to joke:"It`s like Barnie, only it`s a M instead of a B". I think I`ve heard this name only on internet - I`ve never met someone, but I`m happy with it!It`s unique!" Jun. 1, 2010:
"My name's Marnie and although people who read it before they say it for the first time always say "Marine", I love my name - it's so unique and I'm the only person I know who has it. I read a couple of comments saying they needed a middle name to go with Marnie, my middle name is Nichole if that helps :)" Dec. 14, 2009:
"My name is Marnie. Born 1965 - I was named after the movie. I had a love/hate relationship with my name, until highschool when I was teh only Marnie another girl moved to my town with my name and then I felt jealous because I wanted to be the only Marnie. I now love my name becaue it is diferent and I always get a compliment and now it seems everyone I meet knows a "Marnie"" Nov. 2, 2009:
"My name is Marnie... and I like it. It's different, unusual but not too difficult for people to get their heads around. I was the only Marnie at my school for most of 6 years, pretty cool. I get told my name is pretty & unusual. People are often curious to know if it's short for anything... a derivitive of Margaret so I am told. I wasn't named after the Hitchcock film, but I was named after someone my mum knew growing up, someone she looked up to, but her name was Mardie... am so glad they changed their minds." Jul. 28, 2009:
"My mum taught a beautiful, creative and intelligent Marnie. I think it's an orignal name, that's not pretentious or chavvy. Am considering this name for my daughter due in 5 weeks." Jun. 6, 2009:
"My name is Marnie and I really like my name, it is unique and I don't run into many others with my name. I was named after the Alfred Hitchcock movie." Feb. 19, 2009:
"My name is Marnie and I love it - it is a bit unusual without being too try-hard. Spelling and pronounciation sometimes takes a bit of explaining, but having a slightly different name builds character so I would recommend it!" Dec. 3, 2008:
"This is my name, and I've only met one person who said "Oh, like the Alfred Hitchcock movie?"
My grandparent's names are Marie and Ernie, so my mom took the first three letters of Marie and the last three of Ernie and you've got Marnie.
I used to hate my name, but now I love it because there aren't six 'Marnie's in my class, like there are so many other names. It's different, and it's great." Jun. 30, 2008:
"I am one of the 126 in a million Marnie's born in the 1970s. A lot of people mistake my name for Marine (as in the military) when reading it, but other than that most people pronounce it fine. I rarely meet others with my name, but people often comment that it is unusual or pretty. Although it's true that it is difficult to find items with Marnie on them, when I do it's a real treat!" Sep. 1, 2007:
"This is my name (Marnie) and yes people do spell and pronounce it wrong! I've only met 2 people with the same name and spelling as mine. My only complaint with my name was when I was growing up! Since I'm 1/2 Irish I used to get teased by kids saying "Blarnie Marnie". Now I love my name since it is so unique." Feb. 23, 2007:
"I love this name! It is so unusual, yet it is feminine and easy to say. The first time I heard the name was in the famous movie, Marnie. I know only one Marnie (nothing like the movie character). If I had a daughter, I would consider giving her this name." Aug. 11, 2005:

"This is my name and I wouldn't recommmend it. I've been made fun of because of it. It's also annoying to have to spell each time people I i meet assume it's Marty" May. 14, 2017:

"My name is marnie I didn't think this name is so popular often at school teachers forget my name I love my name" Jan. 20, 2014:
"My name is Marni for over 40 years. I answer to anything that starts with an M and ends in a vowel. People ask if its my nickname or short for something...no. Then I looked at a bottle of Grand Marnier and said "Thanks mom, you named me after a liqueur"...at least its made in France. And the movie Marni - klepto with great taste in men - Sean Connery" Oct. 27, 2013:
"Mine is Marne. So alot of the time, it's said Marn . . .with no e sound. I know of very few Marnes. I enjoy the different name!" Jan. 3, 2011:
"I am also a Marni, no E. Marney was my grandmother's maiden name and she was very sick in the hospital when I was born. My parents changed the spelling, called me Marni and now I can carry my grandmother and her name with me forever. Like most of you, I was teased and called Barney as a child. I now love my name and so do others." Dec. 2, 2010:
"I am a Marnie too. Having been a waitress people always want to know my name, Hated having to repeat it two or three times until they got it right. So when ever I order pizza or need to leave my name for less than important reasons, I use my middle name,Sue, like a boy name Sue. So thank you Hitchcock and Johnny Cash!" Sep. 9, 2010:
"I am marnie. from the Movie Also.. I like my name but now I get called barney all the time. Most people love my name :) it is not like everyone else's and that I like :)" Jul. 10, 2010:
"My name is Marni, spelled without the "e," and I have always been pleased with it and received many compliments. It is different without being difficult to pronounce or remember." Jun. 12, 2010:
"My name is Marnie, only mine is spelled Marne. My dad was the one who gave it to the nurse phonetically since he didn't know how to spell it. My mom loved the name from the Hitchcock movie, although she hated the movie. Yes, my name is mispronounced and misspelled all the time, but I don't mind. Like many here, I hated my name growing up mostly because I wanted personalized pencils/pens/"my room" plaque, etc. Now I absolutely love the name. I, too, love the uniqueness of it and there may be more Marnie's around, there aren't too many Marne's." May. 2, 2010:
"While cleaning out a closet I have come across a professionally framed Scherenschnitte (sissors' cutting) of the name Marnie by Richard Kirby from the Frame Gallery & Studio in Spartanburg, Dec 6, 1997. I was going to take it to Goodwill, but did some Googling first. Not sure if it's appropriate to post this, but it's not worth anything and I'd be glad to mail it to a 'Marnie' for the price of postage: firstname.lastname@example.org" Feb. 8, 2010:
"My name is Marnie and came from hitchcock movies but i despise my middle name and cant find anything that goes w/ Marnie, HELP!" Dec. 3, 2009:
"my name is marnie!! i love it. it used to bother me just because whenever i would tell someone my name they would get confused so i'd have to spell it. but i love having a different name. i wasn't named after the movie though, my dad met a lady named marnie and my mom just loved the name." Nov. 17, 2009:
"My grandmother gave me the nickname, Marnie though I was christened "Marion". My mother was going to nickname me "Mitzi" when my grandmother came up with Marnie which I prefer much better than Marion. I was born several years before the Hitchcock film, so I'm not sure where my grandmother heard the name. I've always liked it because it is different, though some people have called me Marine or Marti." Sep. 13, 2009:
"My name is Marnie and in my life so far I have only known one other and she was much older than me, when we met. As in I was a child and she an adult. The only thing I don't like about my name is that people sometimes think it's funny to call me Barney! Otherwise, I am pretty ok with my name and glad that it is not common.
I was named after the Alfred Hitchcock movie, my mom and dad liked the name." Sep. 12, 2009:
"My wifes name is Marnie...and I love it! Since I was a little kid I have always loved girls named Marnie...go figure." Nov. 1, 2007:
"I am not Marnie. Marnie is my sister and she hates her name. She wishes she was called Marie (my parents were only one letter off - not a bad estimate) because she can never find her name anywhere. Identification bracelets, personalized notepads, keychains, you name it. I see now from this chart that this is because Marnie was a popular name a while ago and has gone out of style. She was named for a friend of my mother's. Oh, cruel irony!" Jun. 5, 2007:
