My husband and I want to name our baby after his mother who passed away ten years ago. His mother's name was Mary Delia. We have tossed around the idea of combining her first and middle names and have come up with a few options.

1. Maridel  2. Maradel  3. Maradelia

I don't know how you'd feel about using Mary on its own or not but I love it! Same with Delia. You could use Cordelia too.


I was trying to think of existing name that might work but all I could come up with is Mariel, Marielle, Mariella- they might be too far of a stretch


From you names I like Maradel best. I think Mardelia would be cute too (instead of Maradelia-which I kinda stumble over saying a bit)

I like Maridel. That's interesting and quite nice actually.


You could also use variations:

I like the suggestion of Mardelia. Otherwise, I'd recommend working Mary and Delia into a fn/mn combo. All the M- names I list are forms of Mary. The others just sound similar to Delia.

Molly Cordelia

Della Maureen

Maureen Artemis/Miriam Artemis (Delia is another name for the goddess Artemis)

Adelia Mari (MAH ree)

Maureen Dahlia

Maria Danielle

Marilyn Delma

Molly Adele

Molly Danielle

Molly Delilah

Miriam Delma

Maia Delphine

Maia Danielle

Marie Dahlia

Marie Delilah

Mia Danielle

Maura Delphine

Maura Danielle

Maureen Delilah

Maureen Bedelia

Mari Adele

Delilah Maureen

Adele Miriam

Adele Maria

Della Marie
