Name Meaning

English: metronymic from a form of the female personal name Margaret, via Late Latin Margarita from Greek margaritēs ‘pearl’. This was borne by several early Christian saints, and became a popular female personal name throughout Europe. The vocabulary word was borrowed into Latin and Greek from a Semitic source, and is probably ultimately from Persian morvarid ‘pearl’.
