Marlon-yes vs. Marlon-no

What do you think of the name Marlon? It’s tradition to name the first son after his godfather, who in this case is named "Marion" (a Slavic boys name). It seems too girly to me, although my husband’s side of the family sees it only as a boys name. What do you think of Marlon as a compromise? It’s almost Marion, just with the i melded into an l. It just seems more appropriate for a boy, in my opinion. But I’d like to get some outside opinions, since his family isn’t much help (they all are fine with Marion). Thanks!~Della

Elizabeth in Montana
We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?
Baby Name Genie:
Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
