I really love [name]Marielle[/name], but I prefer [name]Marie[/name] with [name]Lucia[/name].
Here are a few “mar” names that match work okay and don’t end in A:
[name]Maribel[/name] -Very pretty match, but like Purple, it ends with an L sound if that bothers you.
[name]Marcheline[/name] -It’s a little matchy both having the “sh” sound, but I like it!
[name]Marine[/name] -Okay, so you have to like boats. And get past that it sounds like a dealership. But otherwise, there’s something really exotic and cool about [name]Lucia[/name] [name]Marine[/name].
[name]Marlene[/name] -While considered uncool (maybe not, it is a “een” name), I think it works great.
I’d still say I like [name]Marie[/name] best! It kills me that it’s as popular of a mn as it is. Thanks to [name]Marie[/name] from The Aristocats, I’ve liked it since I was 2 or 3!
[name]EDIT[/name]: I’m sad now because I reread your post and realized your last name isn’t really Purple. That would be so cool! There’s the 3yo in my again; I always thought the ideal last name was [name]Lavender[/name]. I knew some people whose last name was [name]Diamond[/name] and thought it was just awesome.
