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

Genie's Mailbag

Terra in Oklahoma
It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
