    I HAVE READ THAT ELVIS AND ELVIS AND PRISCILLA CHOSE THE NAME FROM A BABY NAMES BOOK AND THEY LIKED IT VERY MUCH AND MARIE WAS IN HONOUR OF THE COLONEL'S WIFE.
    MAYBE ELVIS WANTED HIS DAUGHTER TO HAVE HER OWN NAME AND GLADYS JUST WASN'T SUITED AS A BABY NAME.

    I think Priscilla said that Elvis (and she agreed) didn't like a lot of the family names they considered for Lisa. And that they picked Lisa because they just liked it - thought it was pretty and feminine.

    And I'm not sure that Marie was for the Colonel's wife. Marty Lacker said that Elvis just always liked Maria/Marie.

    Lisa Marie is a perfect choice.
    Gladys you know, was his mom.
    A whole new life appeared, this tiny little doll should not be named IMO after a desceased grandma.

    Time was changing and to be honnest I know very few woman who would agree upon naming their first daughter after their mother in law.
    It's hard NOT to imagine Elvis as perfect; how else could someone be THAT good looking, THAT talented, THAT generous & THAT charismatic

    I know when I had my daughter I just wanted something different for her so I named her Evelyn Lenore...Evelyn is from the movie "The Mummy" and Lenore is from an Edgar Allen Poe poem titled "Lenore"
    Son if you ever say another derogatory word about Elvis Aaron Presley I WILL KICK THE LIVING CRAP OUT OF YOU!~

    I think like a lot of generations, new names appear, and certain names become less popular, which I suspect was the case with Gladys. I'm 49 years old, and I don't know one woman named Gladys. Have you checked out the names of the kids these days? Even the common names like Fred, Joe and others are becoming extinct.

    Now I can't imagine her being named anything else. She's Lisa Marie. When people say Lisa Marie Presley it sounds so odd to me.

    Priscilla had some say so in the naming and Gladys is kind of an old fashioned name so maybe it was just never really considered.

    I think the only correct answer for this only Elvis himself can answer, why? Only he knows, why he name his daugter as LM? he dont need a why, I think. It is just a female name for his little daughter....
