A figure of many faces, Marian is a gender-neutral name with a Hebrew origin. Marian defies strict definitions and is used in French, Latin, Greek, and English. As a combination of both Mary and Ann, Marian has a myriad of meanings, including "rebellious," "beloved," "star of the sea," and "grace." It's no wonder the name bear close proximity to the legendary Maid Marian, Robinhood's famed lover whose complex character has cemented her as an early feminist icon. Both a damsel and a heroine, Marian is just as celebrated for her independence and courage as she is for her beauty and loyalty.
