Marisol Origin and Meaning

The name Marisol is a girl's name of Spanish origin meaning "Mary of Solitude".

Marisol is a favorite Spanish name for girls, and an excellent candidate to cross the culture line, a la Soledad and Paz.

The striking French-born Venezuelan artist Marisol Escobar—known simply by her first name—is noted for her witty Pop Art figural sculptures.

While the name comes from a title of the Virgin Mary—Our Lady of Solitude—it's also associated with the Spanish words for sea and sun, mar y sol.

The meaning of Maria is uncertain, but theories include "drop of the sea" (from Hebrew roots mar "drop" and yam "sea"); "bitter" (from Hebrew marah "bitterness"); and "beloved" (from the Egyptian root mr).
