Hi everyone,

I want to know if Marbury is a female name or male name.
In particular i want know if Marbury B. Ogle is a man or a woman.

Thank you

    "Marbury Bladen Ogle, Jr. died July 24, 1990. Born April 19, 1910, in Burlington, Vermont." From Cambridge Journals: http://journals.cambridge.org/actio...e=online&aid=8800934&fileId=S1049096500053038)

    As "Jr." appears as part of his name, we can assume that the late Marbury Bladen Ogle was male.

    For what it is worth, I had never heard the name "Marbury" before and assumed that "Marbury B Ogle" was a comedy character from some light-hearted book.

    I believe that this is an invented name. "Marbury" is a surname, not a first name, so technically it could be given to either a man or a woman. I think it has been chosen deliberately so that you can't tell.

    Edit : crossposted. I stand corrected. We don't have to assume, since the article refers to him as "he".
