Origin: Hawaiian

Meaning: the Hawaiian form of Mary or Maria derived from Hebrew Miriam, whose meaning is debated; it could mean "sea of bitterness", "rebellious" or "to be disobedient", and "wished for child", though it could have also originated as an Egyptian name from mry or mr meaning "beloved" or "love".

It could also be a variant form of Malie, a Hawaiian feminine name meaning "tranquil", "calm, quiet", and "serene".
