Origin:British
Meaning:lake near the woods
Marwood is a boy's name of British origin rooted in the lush village setting close to the Devon coastline. In celebration of Marwood's dreamy waterside location, the name primarily means "lake near the woods." And while this evokes an air of enchantment and mysticism, Marwood holds within it a darker hue. As a variation of Malreward (or Malregard), the name may also mean "evil eye" from the French components mal, meaning "bad," and regard, meaning "look." And while this paints a sinister picture, Marwood rather embraces the complexity of life. One cannot appreciate the wonders of beauty without witnessing the darkness. Bestowed with this gift, little Marwood is sure to appreciate all the nuances of their existence no matter what comes their way.
