Marian Origin and Meaning

The name Marian is a boy's name of Polish origin meaning "related to Mars, Roman god of war".
An attractive and little-known member of the group of romantic, Euro-chic boys' names ending in -ian: think Julian, Fabian, Florian, Adrian.

The visually identical but etymologically unrelated female name Marian (and its variant Marion, both ultimately derived from Maria) were moderately popular in the first half of the 20th century, but Marian dropped out of the Top 1000 for girls in 1992, and hasn't returned.
