A rare gem from a well-known source, Mairin is an Irish feminine name derived from the Ancient Greek María. Closely related to Maire or Mary, Mairin can trace its origins to the Egyptian root mr, endowing it with the favored meaning "beloved." Yet Mairin is not so easily defined, having adopted many characteristics as the centuries passed and languages evolved. In Hebrew interpretations, Mairin possesses the additional meaning "bitter" and, from the root mry, "rebellious." Crossing into Latin territory, Mairin earns its most recognized meaning, "star of the sea," from the Virgin Mary's honorary title, stella maris. A loveable rebel with a pure heart, Mairin is a wonderful way of celebrating baby's eccentricities while paying homage to an ancestral Mary.
