Meaning:star of the sea; beloved; bitter; rebellious
Marika is a feminine name of Polish origin rooted in nuance and a multitude of cultural interpretations. Seen as a variation of Mary, the "star of the sea," Marika is a descendent of the ancient Egyptian root mr, "beloved." Drifting into the Hebrew language, mr adopted a new meaning as "bitter," with others interpreting it as a variation of the root mry, "rebellious." A name that embraces every facet of the human condition, Marika teaches baby unconditional self-acceptance—even when they find themselves pushing the boundaries.
