What do you think of Maria? I really like it but I think it may be a bit too old fashioned..

It's really, really pretty.
I wouldn't care if a name was 'old fashioned' unless it was something unattractive like Gertrude. No one will think of Maria as being old fashioned if they meet a little girl named that.

Very pretty! It is refreshing to see it as a first name option.

It's pretty, I don't think it sounds old fashioned. My cousin has a daughter named Maria, she's 4

Maria used to be pronounced like Mariah in English. So, you could still use that pronounciation without the H if you wanted.

I don't like it, I'm sorry. I do think it's a nice name, just really not my style.
