    It depends on the pronunciation. Like the Spanish last name, it's a bit more unisex. If you think of it like Marin County, I'd say it leans more towards the feminine side.

    The Marin spelling feels more unisex, while Maren is decidedly female.

    Yes, that's where my cousins' father is from

    That's why I thought I'd ask because I see it mentioned a few times on Nameberry. But I could picture it on a little boy (since its a family name - in my eyes.) Plus Marina is actually the feminisation of Marin or Marinus as it was originally coined. So I don't understand it being consider a girl's name especially with the pronounciation MAH-rin. Marin's history spans generations of being used for men, such as Marin Boucher (A French Pioneer) and Marin Barleti (who was a historian and priest.) Plus its a saint's name.

    Marin is boy (or unisex maybe) with Marina as the feminization. Maren, on the other hand, is all girl.
