I'm fairly sure this is allowed.

You are not really allowed to transfer your aeroplan between aeroplan accounts.
But you are allowed to transfer different amex MR to same aeroplan, and also Marriott to same aeroplan.
I believe I've read multiple datapoints of these types of things working.
The terms and condition also doesn't say name must match.

You are slightly off.

Ahh, I tried to figure out why your calc came in about 1,750 points higher - makes sense!xx1what wrote: ↑ You are slightly off.
The 35% bonus is put on after 5k bonus miles.
(This is the reason why you have to transfer in 60k increments, or else you lose out 35% on 5k bonus miles, which is 1750 aeroplan)
So it would go
100000 Marriot -> 33333 aeroplan + 5000
Then 38333 * 1.35 = 51750 aeroplan
Exactly 1750 more than your calculation.
However, notice that the extra 40k Marriott used to transfer, did not get 5k bonus, nor the 35% on the 5k bonus.
This is why, the extra 40k is questionable choice, while converting in 60k chunks gives you the best value.

I just transferred Marriott points (up to 100k per year) from my wife's account to mine earlier this week and the transfer was completed pretty much instantly after calling in.
