Oh yeah, I totally see what you mean with Gabrijela being the more “modern” of the two, but [name_f]Marija[/name_f] is such a classic that will never stop being used. I know 80 year old women named [name_f]Marija[/name_f] as well as six year old girls, so to me it is quite a normal and expected sibset. And as I said, I think their origins tie them together very well. Funny how different perceptions can be!
ETA: may I ask where you’re from?
