With this name, baby won't just be the starring role in your home. Marie, a gender-neutral name, means "star of the sea" and is the French version of the Latin name Mary. For some extra inspiration, it can also mean "wished-for child," "rebellious," and "drop of the sea." You might be most familiar with its use as a female name, due in no small part to legendary French queen Marie Antoinette and Nobel Prize-winning physicist Marie Curie, but it's also totally acceptable as a boy's name. It has a historic feel that's perfect for anyone that wants to leave their mark on the world.
