Origin:Latin
Meaning:Pearl; Star of the sea
Mamie as a girl's name began as a short form of the Greek Margaret. Today, however, it has transformed into a sweet name with a place of its own on the charts. As Margaret means "pearl," so too does Mamie. With a meaning rich in old-world charm and luxurious connotations, this is an elegant title for any little girl. Mamie is also connected to Mary, meaning “star of the sea,” perfect for a little one ready to dive into a life full of joy and adventure. With a slightly different spelling, the name is borne by Patrick Dennis's eccentric fictional character Auntie Mame— a central character of a book, a Broadway musical, and a movie.
