"Marie is my first name and I have always loved my name regardless of its meaning. Marie Rae. Named after my great aunt and uncle (Ray) although Rae is the feminine way of spelling it. Like others, I hear loads, "Marie, that's my middle name". I smile. I too have not found many people with the first name Marie." Oct. 30, 2018:

"I was named Jill Marie, which I think is the most common combination with Jill. Long after my divorce, I wanted to drop my ex's name but not take back my maiden name, so I made a legal change in 1998. I love having Marie as my last name, though I usually get "Murray"? "No, Marie like Marie Antoinette!" Took 3 months to get a passport, for I had to get a duplicate of the court order to prove that I really had changed my name." May. 29, 2013:

"My name is Mindy Marie but I have always loved my middle name. It is definitly a family name, My great grandmother came over from either Germany or Russia and it was her first name, my Aunt and I both share Marie as our middle name and I am passing it on to my daughter. Her name derives from family names. Lucia Eleanor Marie. I think Marie offers a simple beauty and elegance to anyones name." May. 28, 2009:

"My middle name is Marie. It flows nicely with my first name (Holly Marie), but I've never cared for it. I'm sure my parent's picked it because of how my name flows, but I think its vastly overused as a middle name." Feb. 29, 2020:
"I Love it it's my name both my mom and twins name my 2 sisters and it started with My Granny being name Marie plus my TT puppy is Pixie Marie" Jan. 6, 2019:
"Marie is my first name and I hate it. People always spell it or pronounce it wrong. Or they look at you like you're stupid when you say it and then have to repeat it several times or spell it out for them. And it also feels like an old grandma name. I would never recommend it for a first name. But I did use it for my daughter's middle name. I think it's beautiful for a middle name, but not so great for a first name." Feb. 6, 2016:
"This is my middle name, and while it's very pretty, it is extremely overused. It's kind of annoying to hear "Oh really, my middle name is Marie too", all the time. The only reason I even like it at all is because this is also my mother's first name." Mar. 4, 2015:
"It's one of my middle names, and though I like it, I hate that it's so common. It seems like every girl's middle name is Marie. Thank goodness I have other names so it seems more unique. If you want to use it has a name, make it a first, that is a lot less common than as a middle name." Jun. 12, 2014:
"My first name is Marie. I grew up around Boston (lots of Italians) and am half Italian, myself, so mostly everyone called me Maria growing up. It never bothered me, it actually made me smile - they just didn't get it. LOL
I agree that it's a common name, but it's unusual to hear it. I hardly ever meet another Marie, but when I do, we both smile like long lost cousins. :) It's a rarity." Dec. 7, 2013:

"Marie is my middle name, and I agree, it's just about everyone's middle name! It's named after my grandma, I don't really have an opinion on it, it's quite boring, but I think it flows nicely with my first name - Cara Marie." Jun. 1, 2009:

"My name is Marie (as in 'will you MARRY me') i hate it as when ever people see it and read it out they just see Marie and i spend the next ten mins explaining that is not said as it reads and no it's not mary or maaarrrie.
