I fell in love with the name Marley a year before I even got pregnant...I thought it was artsy, yet a name that my parents wouldn't go "What?" Plus I like the cultural aspect of Bob Marley.... Everyone knows his music and feels happy when they hear it. I also wanted a nod to Marley's racial identity without a name like Shaquita, Laquisha and all the rest. Bob Marley was black and white, gifted and mystical...
I felt original and clever using it as my baby name...and now I find out that it's the name of Will Smith's daughter in "I am Legend!!"

And... ? I really don't understand your point. The popularity for Marley now is because of Angelina Jolie's adopted daughter, Zahara Marley.

I noticed the little girl was named that, too. Very cute.

I love the name Marley. DBF vetoed it and I'm still sad.

So are you upset that it's rising in popularity or do you feel special that you picked a name that many people are starting to like and use?

I like the name but i know 3 little girls older than your daughter named Marley It's pretty common where i live. I think it's cute and would love to use it as a middle name.

I didn't know Zahara middle name was Marley!!

I was making a little joke about myself... I'm thinking I'm so clever and smart in my head like, "Hey Nobody's thought of this!!"...and reality is that Marley is so trendy and popular Movie and Movie Stars are using it...I've done that with cars too, I never seem to see the one I want on the road ...until after I've bought it and then I see it every other car!! I guess I need to work on the humor writing!!

I think that Marley's a fine name. I never knew the middle name of Angelina Jolie's daughter and don't think many people do. If you named her Shiloh, I might make a connection but never to Marley.

I think of Jacob Marley.

I think Angelina Jolie's daughter was named after Bob Marley.
