"Largely confined to the female gender in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, as well as in Australia and Canada, even if the name has an old-fashioned ring to it. On the other hand, not all American Marions, black or white, are female, as John Wayne (white, of course - and his real name's Marion Michael Morrison) proved throughout the 20th century." Sep. 24, 2011:
"John Wayne was born in 1907 as Marion Michael Morrison, when Marion was more popular for girls than boys (think Bewitched actress Marion Lorne who in the 1960s achieved her own fame as the dithery Aunt Clara with Elizabeth Montgomery as her niece Samantha Stephens). No wonder that 'Duke' Morrison, as he became known in his childhood and adolescence, had his name changed to John Wayne in the 1930s!" May. 9, 2008:
