    Name Meaning

    A name derived from Mapia, one of the Greek forms of Miriam. Maria is found as a male name as well as a female name. Viscount Montague, of Cowdray, Sussex, who succeeded to the title as second viscount, was christened Anthony Maria Browne. In Camden's Remains (p. 44), referred to in Delicie Literarise, occurs Thomas Maria Wingfield; and there was also a Sir Edward Maria Wingfield. The name appears to have been adopted in the latter family from Mary, daughter of Henry VIII. Compare Notes and Queries 5th S. ii. 73, 316, 478. Marie is frequently found as a male name in France and in other parts of the Continent.
