WDYT of the name Marina? Does it remind you too much of a boat marina? I love it and think it sounds beautiful, but is the association too much?

Thanks!

I don't associate it with boats when I hear it. I know 2 women named Marina and they are both beautiful, looks and personality. It's a very pretty name.

It does bring to my mind boats, but that's probably because I've aways lived by the ocean. It's a nice name.

I definitely don't associate it with that. If you never knew anyone with the name it might, but I've known girls named Marina so I don't.

I really like it. A woman in my PR named her little girl Marinah--she's so cute! And I do not think of boats.
