Here are some positives associated with the name Mallory, so you can ignore her negative meaning: The name has a soft, lovely sound; a legendary English mountain climber who made it to the top of Mount Everest in the 1920s was named George Mallory; and a 1980s TV show called 'Family Ties' featured a well-liked character named Mallory (sister to Michael J. Fox’s character), which made the name take off, landing it on the Top 100 charts. Though Mallory currently has dropped to moderate use, any child would be extremely fortunate to be given such a likable name.
