How Do You Feel About Your Name, Marlys?

Marlys is a 44-year-old from the Midwest (originally upstate New York) who can sum up her name in two words: “Love it.”

Her name was not among the 1,000 most popular baby names in the U.S. the year she was born, but it did manage to rank for a span of about three decades before that point (from the 1920s through the 1950s).

What does Marlys like most about her name?

I like that it’s unusual. I think it’s pretty. The Lynda Barry cartoon doesn’t hurt.

What does she like least about her name?

People who see it don’t know how to pronounce it. People who hear it don’t know how to spell it. Since my middle name has similar problems, it’s just as well that my books are published under “MJ.”

Thanks, Marlys!
