    Name Meaning

    Biblical name: the Old Testament form of the Hebrew name Maryam . Of uncertain ultimate origin, this is first recorded as being borne by the elder sister of Moses (Exodus 15:20). Since the names of both Moses and his brother Aaron are probably of Egyptian origin, it is possible that this female name is too. It was enthusiastically taken up as a given name by the Israelites, and is still found mainly, but by no means exclusively, as a Jewish name.
