Francesca Marjolaine?

My grandmothers names are [name]Frances[/name] and [name]Marjorie[/name]. We would like to honor them with more modern sounding names. Is [name]Francesca[/name] [name]Marjolaine[/name] too much of a mouthful?

I like [name]Francesca[/name], but I can’t say I’m fond of [name]Marjolaine[/name] as a name. I love [name]Frances[/name], and I don’t think it’s too old at all. Other forms of [name]Marjorie[/name] you could use:


I really like:

[name]Francesca[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]
[name]Greta[/name] [name]Frances[/name]
[name]Francesca[/name] [name]Marguerite[/name]

Yes, it does seem slightly too much.

[name]Francesca[/name] is beautiful. I love the suggestion of [name]Francesca[/name] [name]Marguerite[/name].
[name]Francesca[/name] [name]Marjorie[/name] could work too…

[name]Francesca[/name] [name]Marjolaine[/name] is too much in my book. [name]Marjolaine[/name] [name]Frances[/name] would be great, and I also second [name]Francesca[/name] [name]Marguerite[/name].

I think it’s really classy! but really long


I love both names, but I agree that together, it’s a lot of name. :slight_smile:

You may also like [name]Margo[/name]/[name]Margot[/name]. I think that [name]Francesca[/name] [name]Margot[/name] (or [name]Margo[/name]) is beautiful.

Beacause [name]Marjorie[/name] is a form of [name]Margaret[/name], which means “pearl,” another (but less direct) way to honor a [name]Marjorie[/name] could be “pearl.” [name]Francesca[/name] [name]Pearl[/name].

Good luck! :slight_smile:

I agree!
