Mar is a gender-neutral name of Spanish and Portuguese origin. Rooted in Latin, it comes as a diminutive of the expression mare, meaning “sea.” The name Mar makes for an awesome personal name, but it's also core to the popular Spanish and Portuguese surnames De Mar and Del Mar. Parents may even recognize it from Nuestra Señora del Mar_,_ a devotional title belonging to the patron saint of Almería, Spain. Wherever the tide takes your little one, may they be inspired by this lovely elemental moniker.
