What do you think of Mabry?

This name has been floating at the back of my mind for a couple months now, but I’ve never met anyone with this name nor have heard of anyone live and breathing by this name.

**[name]EDIT[/name]: I am pronouncing it [name]May[/name]-bree, not [name]Mab[/name]-ree ([name]Mab[/name] rhymes with cab).

From what I’ve found, it is traditionally spelled [name]Mabry[/name], but I’m toying with other spellings (Maebry is my favorite so far).

What do you think of this name, and what is your opinion on the spelling?


I’ve only ever seen this name as a surname and I must admit that it doesn’t seem like a first name to me. Sorry

[name]Hi[/name] [name]Amaryllis[/name]!

I actually went to school with a [name]Mabry[/name] when I was little (I think it was her mom’s maiden name), so I have an easy time picturing it on a little girl. She had blonde hair and brown eyes and was a lot of fun to be around.

Because I’m used to the [name]Mabry[/name] spelling (pronounced [name]May[/name]-bree, like you said), I like it more than the Maebry spelling.

Take care!

I have a dear friend named Mabrie… it works for her, she totally fits her name. I don’t mind it! Again though, she carries her mothers surname as her first. SO I like it more because of that. I’m not so sure how much I like it as a random first name.

Thanks for the opinions! I went to high school with a girl named [name]Mabry[/name], but I don’t know if it was a family surname or if it was simply a name her parents liked. (Side note: [name]Jill[/name], the [name]Mabry[/name] I knew fit your [name]Mabry[/name]'s description to a T, only as a teenager!)

I don’t think this one is really in contention for our little girl, but it has been lingering in the back of my mind…I’m not sure why.

Thanks again!

On another site I saw [name]Abri[/name] - pronounced ay-bree. I thought it was pretty. I’m liking [name]Mabry[/name]. It has that [name]Avery[/name], [name]Aubrey[/name], [name]Audrey[/name], vibe to me but it is new and exciting. I might play with it in the middle. :slight_smile:

It’s the last name of several families in my small town, so that’s what I think of when I hear it. While I see the appeal and know how to pronounce it because of these families, I think most people would automatically try to pronounce it [name]Mab[/name]-ree.
