Marylebone. Local feeling with regard to place names should always be taken into consideration, for there is a story regarding how Marylebone received its name. For countless years the place had been known as Tyburn (Tiburne in the Domesday Book) but the association with the tragic tree became too grim and so the local folk took a new name for their parish, being a dedica¬tion of the local Church of St Mary-by-the-Bourn, thus 'Tyburn' became Maryburne and is so recorded in 1453. The le (by or near) was added later, the district being known as Mary le bone in 1746. Tyburn survived until the end of the 18th century with the Tyburn Tree, an execution place, near the present Marble Arch.

During the station's planning it was referred to as either MARYLEBONE or LISSON GROVE (where the entrance then was), but it opened as GREAT CENTRAL (reflecting the ownership of the adjacent main line station) on 27 March 1907; re-named MARYLEBONE 15 April 1917.
