Meaning:Star of the sea; Dark-skinned
Maurie is a gender-neutral name. It may be a diminutive of the Irish girl’s name Maureen, a variant of Mary meaning “star of the sea.” It may also be a shortened form of the French boy’s name Maurice, which derives from the Latin name Mauritius meaning “dark-skinned.” Whichever origin you prefer, Maurie has a cheerful, vintage charm. You may opt to name baby this on its own, or use it as a nickname for one of its longer forms.
