Pretty much. I'm not super-pleased with it (originally being a male name, having it be so close to my son's name, and being difficult to pronounce, esp for Californians) but it will probably be Marin Sophia.



My husband is really set on it though and since he has been the only one to impregnant me after I have gone through endometriosis surgery, a failed attempt at IVF with my ex, and being pretty much being told at age 29 that I would never conceive, I totally let him run with this one. Especially since all 3 kids have names that come from my side of the family and none from his!



It will be pronounce "MARE-in" and not "Mah-RIN" which she will be correcting her whole life, I am sure. But since our last name is constantly mispronounced I guess it's not that big of deal.

I like it. I prefer the Maren spelling, but it's not a huge deal - it's pretty.

Thanks. I do like that (as of now) it's not popular. Hated that my son Mason got stuck with a name that exploded in popularity just a few years after his birth. Growing up with the moniker Jennifer has really soured me on popular names.

So I guess right now DH is really loving Atlas and Ares. I think boy are okay. Out of his list I like Caspian. I kind of like the sound of Caspian Atlas.

I HIGHLY doubt Maren will over make top ten or even top 25 - I doubt if it will come close. It doesn't have that broad appeal that a top 10 name has. It sounds chic and modern but it's not something that people all across the board are going to find appealing, I think you should be fine.

I wish my SO had awesome taste, jeeze, lol. I kind of prefer the flow of Caspian Ares, but I prefer Atlas as a name overall.

Quoting Suit Up. [CNL]:" Eudora Pandora Lucia are the only 3 I liked. Pandora and Lucia were on our list already. Ugggh."


Ugg, I am having the asme problem. I thought we were pretty much settled on Charlotte, but then once I used it for a few days I realized it just wasn't THE name. Now we are starting over and our list is so short and none feeling perfect:



Rosemary
Isobel (or Isabel)
Juniper
Julia
