"This is my name but it's spelled Marcela and this is 2020 almost 2021 if u don't know sorry if you do! And i really like it!" Jul. 6, 2020:
"I named my daughter 'Marcella' in 1971, because of the little girl/ main character in the original Raggedy Ann stories by Johnny Gruelle (published originally in 1918) and also because the name relates to ancient latin and relates to being strong/warrior.
I think it's a lovely, feminine name - and my daughter is a beautiful and strong person." Mar. 6, 2020:
"my name is marcella!!! im not sure if ive ever met someone named ?marcella? with 2 L?s i think its more common with 1 L but anyways it makes me uncomfortable when people call me MarCHella" Nov. 3, 2018:
"My name is Marcella, and I LOVE the Latin meaning of the name, because women can be warriors, too: strong, decisive fighters when needed. My dad, who was Italian, called me "Marcellina" or "little Marcella". I just go by Marcie most of the time. I am 68 years old." Sep. 22, 2018:
"My name is actually Marcella and I'm really happy with the name I was born with. It's not too common, but not too exotic to where it can't be pronounced. People do sometimes misspell my name, but that can be forgiven. :D" Jan. 13, 2017:
"My beloved grandmother was Marcella and I named my daughter (born 2010) after her. She normally goes by Marcy. I hear compliments on her name all the time, and we've yet to meet another girl her age named Marcella, and so far she likes having a unique name. The nurse we had in the hospital when she was born was of Eastern European descent and called her MarCHella, and we thought it was cute, so while we pronounce it MarSella, I call her Mar-CHEL-la as a pet name sometimes." Mar. 15, 2016:
"My 9 year old daughter is named Marcella. Everyone calls her Cella. I found her name in a baby name book and fell in love with it. I really liked Isabella, but thought it was way too common." Jun. 20, 2013:
"My mother was named Marcella Pauline and one of my daughter's named her daughter Marcella and another daughter named her daughter Marceline." Mar. 12, 2013:
"I love the history that comes with this name; it has been in use for over 2000 years. Someone else had said that they didn't like the meaning, but I love that such a delicate sounding name carries such strength in its meaning. The downside is that quirky or weird characters are often named Marcy, and as previously mentioned it is difficult as a child to find trinkets with your name on it." Nov. 11, 2012:
"It's my name, and people do call me MarCHella, but after having this name for fouteen years i got used to it. Although, its such a pretty name its a shame that it means warlike" Mar. 9, 2008:
"I was named for my great grandmother. I hated it when I was little and simply went as Marcy. It was annoying that nobody else had my name and I could never find license plate for my bike or pencils that had my name on them. However, as I've become an adult, I have come to adore my name, and usually introduce myself as Marcella rather than Marcy. It's beautiful and classy and seems to have an ageless quality to it, despite not being popular since the early 20th century. And as a teacher, it makes it REALLY hard for my students to guess my name." Jan. 2, 2007:
"MY MOM'S NAME IS MARCELLA!!! I LOVE EET!!! IT IS COOL. AND IT ISN'T HARD TO PRONOUNCE OR SPELL OR ANYTHING." Jun. 4, 2006:
"When I was born my parents like this name and my nickname is Marcy, people complement me alot. My friends that know my ancestry, know I am Irish Scottish an English. I love being calle either name." Feb. 3, 2006:

"Well it?s my name I was born in 2000 and now a days there is around 40 or less Marcella?s I know of" Nov. 21, 2020:
"My dutch immigrant mother did not want dutch names for her kids but rather, wanted us to "fit in" to Canada so she named me...Marcella (?!?) Haha. I do love the name and the strong meaning - warrior!" Oct. 18, 2020:
"My name is marcella spelled with 2 L which I have never seen. I am only 13 years old and I'm a latina. People always pronounce it Marchella." May. 13, 2020:
"My name is Marcella, I?m a 5th generation Australian. My ancestors were Irish & every generation has had a Marcella. I am 80 years old last September & was born in 1939 the start of world war 2. I didn?t call my daughter Marcella, but my grand-daughter is Katie Marcella which I think is very nice. My name had never been shortened as my mother was strick about that. It was my mother ?s & grandmother?s name as well. I am proud of my name , I love it, & I?m always being told how lovely it is. Hello to all the other Marcella ?s in the world. X" Jan. 4, 2020:
"I'm Italian and you would pronounce it MarCHella which is absolutely correct. I hate when they call me MARSELLA, which reminds me of Marsala a wine." Aug. 10, 2015:
"It drives me nuts when people mispronounce my name and call me Mar-Chella. that's not my name. Another pet peeve I have is when people change Marcie into Marcia, that isn't my name either." Mar. 8, 2007:
