Marie (given name)

Marie is the Czech and French form of Mary. It is also used to a certain degree in Danish, English, German, Norwegian, and Swedish as a borrowing from French. Like Mary, Marie is descended from Maria, the Latin form of the Greek Μαρία Maria, the name used for various characters in the New Testament, including Mary, mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and Mary of Bethany, hence the popularity of the name among Christians. The name itself is the Greek translation of the Hebrew מִרְיָם Miriam, the name of Moses's sister in the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament. It is primarily used by women, though it is also used by men, usually hyphenated with another name, e.g. Jean-Marie (see below).
