Of your list, Marley is my favourite apart from the fact I have only known male Marley's. I do like Aria too though.
Posted 02 January 2013 - 05:30 PM
Of those, I would choose Maple.
Marley is the only one I really dislike however.
Posted 02 January 2013 - 05:33 PM
In order of preference:
Aria - very pretty & my favourite of your list by a long way!!
Poppy - also pretty but not really my style
Marley - I find this a lot less pretty and agree with PP that it's a bit masculine.
Maple - don't like this at all sorry OP.

In order of preference
Marley - except I would spell it Mali or Mahli

Yeah I am keen on Aria tho worried it may b a bit popular now?
Posted 02 January 2013 - 06:43 PM
Maple by a landslide win for me. It's the only one I like, and I think it's really nice and uncommon without being hard to say/spell etc.
I don't like the others at all. I'd swap Marley for Molly if that's possible?

Marley to me is a boys name.
Aria and Poppy are NMS but fine.
Maple gets a great big NO from me.

I love Marley for a girl. (DS would've been Marley if he were a girl).
Maple is nice, and I really like Aria. Poppy is ok.
Posted 02 January 2013 - 06:55 PM
In order I like Aria, Maple, Marley then Poppy. Aria is becoming more popular so I'd go with maple. Love it.
Posted 02 January 2013 - 06:59 PM
Not a fan of Aria and it's on the ascent well and truly.
Marley I like but for a boy. There's 6+ other spellings that might make it more girl. Or maybe consider Marla and NN her a Marley variant of choice. I think Marla for a girl is very cool.
Poppy is an old favourite but you might find a few around.
That leaves Maple; could be confused with Mabel but it's a really fresh but uncomplicated botanical.Maple
is a winner

To me Marley is a good name for a dog although i do know a little girl called Mali which I think is better. Don't mind Aria, Poppy is cute but Maple is too out there IMO.
Posted 02 January 2013 - 07:47 PM
Other potential names were Allira and Harriet. Agree that Poppy is quite popular now and thought Maple may b too out there- tho i still like it
I'm thinking no to Marley and Aria now. So its going to b either:
Least the list is getting shorter!

Harriet is gorgeous and would definitely be my pick.
Then Maple, then Allira - but all three are lovely.
Posted 02 January 2013 - 07:52 PM
Maple - no, what about Heather or Hazel
Poppy - ok, Daisy, Ivy or Voilet are better
Marley - not keen on what about Amalia or Malia
Aria - not bad - what about Arianna or Arianne or Arielle

Lovely choice of names
Have u thought of Acacia?
Posted 02 January 2013 - 09:58 PM
Have not heard of Acacia before, very different and something to consider
Posted 02 January 2013 - 10:19 PM
There seem to be quite a few Harriets around. Allira is lovely but I still like the idea of Maple. It's unusual without being 'out there' IMO. Distinctive rather. But it would be hard to split Maple and Allira I would think.
I do like the sound of Allira Maple very much.
Posted 02 January 2013 - 10:32 PM
I've liked Maybelle for quite awhile and Maple seems to streamline it while interjecting a fresh nature-y feel.
I'm also homesick for maple trees which is probably no small part of it, but yeah, that's my take.
Posted 03 January 2013 - 08:13 AM
I really like Maple. The others are NMS.
Harriet Maple would be a wonderful combo
I also really like Mabel.
Posted 03 January 2013 - 09:46 AM
I also love Harriet tho think it might be getting very popular.
Allira Maple or Harriet Maple sound really good together.
Don't think Allira is a name I have seen around that much?
Otherwise i think Maple Allira sound great together too.

Posted 03 January 2013 - 03:26 PM
I don't see Harriet as being too popular, way better than Maple
Allira is ok, I still think Hazel or Heather are nicer
I've heard of Elora, Alora which are nice too
