Other Origin(s):Egyptian, Hebrew
Meaning:Bitter; Rebellious; Star of the sea
Mariette is a French variation of the feminine name Miriam. Thought to stem from the Egyptian root mr, meaning "beloved," Miriam has as many interpretations as it has variations. From the Hebrew roots mr, meaning "bitter," and mry, meaning "rebellious," numerous iterations of the name emerge—the most famous being Mary. From this, Mariette gains its most alluring translations as "drop of the sea," perhaps a nod to its boundless attributes.
