Welcome Marlie

After days and nights of delicate negotiations in smoke-filled rooms, the two parents emerged together to announce the name of the babe, just two days old: she is to be called Marlie Florence Szirtes Horne - just Marlie Horne to the world. Nice sound to it. She will enjoy wearing it.

Marlie, variant on English Marlee and German Marlene, meaning 'marshy meadow' presumably from mar=marsh (marais, mer), and lea=meadow.

Sail forth, Marlie!
