I know a lovely grown up Marianne so the name has positive vibes for me.
I think it is elegant and graceful and unusual without being wacky.
If you get my drift...

Gorgeous name. Apparently my parents considered if for me, but in the end they chose s much more popular 1970s girl's name. Always been a bit envy that they didn't go with Marianne.

Just realised I sound a bit of a div describing my daughter's name as 'edgy'....best word I could think of. Anyway, use it, it's gorgeous!

Really like it, Marian is a bit old fashioned but maybe due for a resurgence,but Marianne is lovely.

Love it. Prefer Marianne with the "a" sound at the end though in the continental way to the "ann" ending that the UK tends to give it.

love it, love it, love it. I'm too old for more dds so you can use it instead of me!

This was on my girl list but I'm having another boy.

I was going to use Manon for short.

I absolutely love it.

If we ever had a fourth, we'd consider it for a girl, even though it's similar to DD's middle name.

I am the only person on the thread who dislikes it! grin

On that basis OP, go for it!
