Maryjane

Heart
English, combination of Mary and Jane
"drop of the sea, bitter, or beloved + god is gracious"

Maryjane Origin and Meaning

The name Maryjane is a girl's name meaning "drop of the sea, bitter, or beloved + god is gracious".
Mary was such a common name for so long that it sprouted a whole family of chimeric name splices: Maryann, Marybeth, Mary-Lousie, ad infinitum. Spiderman's Mary Jane Watson and the common nickname for marijuana have helped keep this one especially familiar to the American ear.

The meaning of Mary 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).
