Okay, I am pretty much in love with the name Marleigh, but dh vetoed it almost as soon as it came out of my mouth. So, can you guys help me think of a name that sounds similar? I like names that are a little different, but not too "out there." My current children are named Koeby, Caylynn, Willow, and Gwen if that helps at all. Thanks!

Macey came to mind, or maybe Marsaili or Malleigh. It would help to know what he doesn't like about Marleigh, which I think is nice.

I like Mallory with your other kids names, too.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.<br><br>
He doesn't like that he immediately associates it with Bob Marley. He doesn't like names that are immediately associated with something else. (Don't ask me how he didn't make any associations with the name Willow though.)<br><br>
Oh, and to answer a pp it would be a girl name.

I really like the name Gwen--would it be short for Gwenyth?

No, it is short for Gwendolyn, it is a family name.
