Marilyn made the name famous, but the first name Monroe for a baby girl is positively adorable! This is a Scottish name, meaning “from the river’s mouth”. Girls named Monroe are said to be competent, practical, and often obtain great power and wealth. They are said to be successful in
business and have great material wealth. I’m not sure if any of that is true, but again Marilyn certainly did do all of that! But her last name was Monroe so that’s a bit different. It’s said that Monroes tend to focus so strongly on business that they neglect their private lives and sometimes even relationships. Cute nicknames (though none is really needed) are Moe or Roe, but I think you could certainly do Roey or Rory like from Gilmore Girls. She may become a coffee addict though, so keep that in mind!
