26 Beautiful Christian Baby Girl Names With Their Meanings
This lovely name is thought by many to be a variation of Mara or Mary, but we think it deserves its own mention because of the bigger difference in spelling and pronunciation. In the Old Testament, Miriam was the sister of Moses, and thus there is a strong religious component for many who choose the name for their own daughter. Miriam usually means â€œlonged for childâ€ or â€œwished for child,â€ although some sources say it can also mean â€œrebellious.â€ The name Miriam appears frequently throughout classic literature, and many parents love the nickname options if offers: Mira, Mia, Ria.
