Marwood is a gender-neutral name of British and French origin, popularly rooted in the lush village setting close to the Devon coastline. Usually a last name, Marwood translates to “greater” and “wood,” nodding to nature’s natural beauty. Besides this association, it holds within it a darker hue. As a variation of Malreward (or Malregard), the name may also mean "evil eye" or “glance” from the French word mal regard. 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.
