OK what do you think about a girl named Mary Jane?

I dont smoke pot nor does my babys father but we decided if we have a girl we will name her Mary Jane. I just really like it but when I tell people they assume the worst. what do you think? Its just a name but people reed way too much into it so PLEASE be nice.

  • I'm afraid I don't like it... It's an old fashioned name, and I love those but I just think she would get a lot of trouble for it in school... Kids can be really cruel..

  • I have a friend who named her daughter Mary Jane. She's never smoked pot in her life and just laughs it off when people make the "pot" remarks. Stand your ground and remind people that you and your SO loved the name.

  • One of my best friend's mom's name is Mary Jane, and I practically lived at their home growing up (ok, not literally, but we were always at each other's houses). Every time I see that name she comes into my mind. I never see it and think of pot. If you like it, go for it.
