We know we are having a girl (at least I hope the sonogram is right!) and the only name DH and I have agreed on in the past 9 weeks is:

Natalie Marie.

I like the name, but did a google search and turns out there is a playboy pinup with that same name! I am sure most of the population won't know that, but it creeps me out, lol.

I think it's a very pretty name(my middle is Marie)! I had no clue about the pin-up... Like you said, I doubt when your little gal is grown that ANYBODY will know, let alone most people today. Go for it!

LOVE the names. No worry about the pinup, the pinup won't be around for much longer (given what I assume is the incredibly short lifespan of pinup status) ;-)

I really think it's a pretty name, and Natalie isn't all that common right now! I think you should use it. How many people really know the names of playboy pinups?

DDCC-

No joke, the same thing happened to me yesterday! I googled the first and middle name that we've chosen for a boy (unique first name, common middle name) and came up with a male porn star.

However, as my co-workers pointed out yesterday, a lot of pin-ups/adult film stars have stage names that are double first names.

Sort of a funny name dilemma to have, eh???

chances are, by the time she's a big girl, (yours) the other "Natalie Marie" will be a distant memory.
I love the name Natalie. So much that's it's my daughter's name. She is named after Natalie Merchant and my high school best friend. It sounds lovely with Marie. Go for it.

I love the name Natalie, and like everyone else, I wouldn't let the pinup thing bother me at all!

LOVE the name Natalie, it was on my short list, but hubby would not go for it. I would not let it worry me in the least. I found more images of Natalie Portman on Marie Claire (Natalie Claire is cute too!) than of a pinup girl. I also didn't see anything skeevy, just suggestively dressed, so it is not like she would be sharing a name with like Jenna Jameson or something.

LOVE the choice, I hope you use it!

I like it! It is similar to the only name Dh and I can agree on Natalia. Plus a pin up big deal, better than a porn star

That's a very pretty and classic name. I'd go with it. Don't let the pin-up bother you. If you were asking about the name Stormy Weather or something I might give you a different response, but Natalie Marie is a very pretty non-pornish name. I don't think anyone would associate the two.
