Now, a woman has divided Reddit after asking for advice on names she has shortlisted for a baby girl.
She wrote: "I am stuck between two very different feeling names for a future baby girl. Future baby boys would be named Griffin and Dane.
“For a girl, I’m thinking either Marlena Rose or Winter Rose.
“I love Winter more but it’s also very trendy and I have a feeling it will be dated whereas Marlena is more classic.”
But the Reddit user didn’t get the response she bargained for, with responses making lots of different associations between the name choices and the most random things.
One person penned: “I like Marlena more than Winter. It feels vintage without being dowdy, plus Winter Rose kinda sounds like a candle scent.”
Another person agreed, writing: “I have a cat called Winter - his twin is Ghost (GOT named bottle litter)... Winter Rose scented anything immediately makes me think of litterbox LOL Marlena all the way!!”
A third Reddit commenter put all their support behind Marlena and explained why. “Winter Rose sounds kinda try-hard and Marlena sounds more elegant, so Marlena Rose gets my vote.”
While someone else wrote: “Oh wow, please not Winter Rose. That’s… unbearably cheesy. Winter itself is not bad, but the combo sounds like you picked it when you were eleven years old. Marlena is nice, uncommon but not trendy, good nickname possibilities.”
However some users liked the name Winter and one even suggested merging both name options. "I like them both! Have you considered using them as a first and middle name? I think both Winter Marlena and Marlena Winter sound nice. But if you love Winter more, I’d go Winter Marlena," one person suggested.
One Reddit user shared: “I love both, but I think Winter Rose sounds a bit Celebrity Baby Name (not necessarily a bad thing). I think Marlena Rose has a great ring to it, but they're both beautiful.”
