DH is making me keep name ideas secret, so I need advice. In general, what do you think of when you hear this name? I am going for masculine, strong, not too common, slightly unusual, maybe southern or slightly preppy...

My DS1 had a boy named Marshall in his gymnastics class last year. He's he only one I've ever known so I think of him first.

I wouldn't say it's an unusual name or southern, but I think it meets your other requirements.

I think of Marshall Mathers (Eminem).

I also wouldn't say it was unusual or southern.

I love the name Marshall! I know a young man exactly how you described. 1st string Quarterback, preppy, masculine, gorgeous, funny, blonde hair/blue eyes.

Eh.. I think it's kind of nerdy. I am not opposed to nerdy though, so that's not a bad thing. I don't think it's too uncommon, but it's not popular. I'm not sure it's Southern, and it's not preppy to me, but that's just me.

I picture a brown headed little boy, but that's probably because the only Marshall I have ever known has brown hair I like that the name isn't used all of the time, so it's kind of refreshing to hear.

I am with the previous ladies who mention Marshall from How I Met Your Mother! Marshall on that show is a really nice guy, a little on the quirky side, but funny and endearing. That is absolutely the image I have of any Marshall now

I think of a designer lol My first thoughts go to the clothing store.

I think it's a nice name though but not southern.

I think the opposite, feels southern to me, mainly because most Westerns consider law officers as Marshals, or the Marshall Tucker band, a southern band.
