Mary Jane is a mash-up of two popular girls names that are Hebrew and English in origin, respectively. Mary has multiple meanings in Hebrew, including “drop of the Sea,” “bitter,” and “beloved.” Jane, which means “Beloved of God,” evokes a similar sentiment. The combination of Mary Jane has become more fashionable thanks to Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker’s love interest in the Spider-Man comics and movies. You can also shorten it to MJ to give baby a cute and memorable nickname.
