Will it forever be associated to the singer Mariah Carey? I just saw this name in another thread but never considered using it because of the singer. I think it's a beautiful name but think Mariah Carey may have ruined it such as Elvis and Madonna.

Tell me your thoughts!

Yeah, I often think of Mariah Carey when I see it. But, I've also known several little Mariahs, so it's kind of losing that association for me.
Thank-you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy!

I actually don't think of Mariah Carey when I hear it. I've heard it on a few babies so maybe thats why I don't associate it with her. I don't immediately associate Britney with Britney Spears or Christina with Christina Aguleria but I would immediately associate Madonna or Elvis with the famous ones.. maybe because they go by only the one name?

I don't think of her at all. I think it helps that a friend has an adorable little Mariah that I now think of. It's a really cute name!

I definitely thought of Mariah Carey at the height of the Mariah craze back in the late 80's, early 90's when the name got super popular. BUT... I think the association is weakening with time, and that this name has the potential to rise up the charts again on it's own accord. I think it is a pretty name.

Well Mariah Carey is one of my two most favorite singers, so I'm just as guilty as the next person, but I think you could get away with using it. Mariah was my top girl's name for a long time. Very pretty!
