    Not really. It's a very common middle name though.

    It's very common but more common as a middle name, in my opinion.

    The name Marie is a girl's name of Hebrew, French origin meaning "drop of the sea, bitter, or beloved". ... In the United States, Marie was a huge hit at the turn of the last century and for the ensuing fifty years, becoming the seventh most popular name in the country for three years, from 1901 to 1904.

    It's not a common first name, but it's a very very common middle name for a girl.

    Not anymore. It was one of the most popular names in the early 1900s and still in or near the top 100 as late as 1960 but has dropped to about #650 now.

    Yes but now days it seems to be more common as a middle name.  Maria is more common as a first name.  Both Marie and Maria are very pretty.

    No.  It is too close to the Catholic dominant  demi-god of "Mary". 

    Marie is a more common middle name,

    but that does not make it a "middle name only".

    It is a classic name, and the French version of Mary/Maria.
