Meaning:Mariner; Seaman; Sailor
Mariner, a British and French boy's name, exudes the adventurous spirit of the sea, meaning "seaman" and "sailor." Originally used to describe explorers, it originates in the sea voyages of pirates, merchants, and continental explorers. Mariner also carries literary weight, featured in Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 1798 poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, which narrates the fictional tale of a sailor returning from a lengthy voyage. Additionally, it appears in English surname documents as an occupational name, reflecting Middle English mariner, meaning "sailor," "seaman," and "boatman," as well as the Old French marinier. Mariner weaves together a nautical legacy with a touch of literary charm for your little explorer.
