Why isn't the name MARY very popular any more?

Is it because of us calling each other that?

Or is it because it sounds too old-fashioned?

I like the name MARY!!

My favorite horrible girl's name is "Angustias". Lorca used that in one of his plays. "Anguishes". It's even worse than Agnes.

by Anonymousreply 502/21/2021

"Anguishes" is better than the Carmelite nun name 'Mary, Victim of Jesus'.

Mary is a grand old name. I’m partial to M’s. There’s something about the sound and the look of the letter itself. M is a great letter, strong and stoic. Muscular.

It was crazily popular for such a long time - sort of the female equivalent of John - and therefore became seen as very generic.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help or sought your intercession, was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence, I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer me.

My nephew's 24-year-old girlfriend is named Mary Grace. She grew up outside of Boston if that matters.

Her parents are very conservative, reportedly, so maybe they're Catholic and liked the name Mary Grace?
