Marion

Origin: France
gender-female
Region Origin: Western Europe

The name Marion is a gender-neutral name with a dual origin, primarily traced back to French and English roots. The meaning of Marion is derived from two sources: 1. "Star of the sea" or "beloved" in French. 2. "Wished for a child" in Hebrew. The name Marion has been used as a diminutive or nickname for the name Mary, Margery, or Marriott in English, and for the name Marie in French. A Medieval French diminutive of Marie, Marion is believed to have originated from a devotee of Mother Mary or as a derivation of the Hebrew name Miryam, which means "wished for a child". The name Marion, pronounced as mah-ree-un, has no significant cultural or religious significance by itself, but its connection to the Greek name Mary gives it a historical association with France's nobility and high-ranking officials.
