SHORT FORM OF:
margaret, margareta
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
MARGARī́TēS (MAñJARī) (MARVâRID)
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
MARGARī́TēS ‎(μαργᾰρῑ́της) MAñJARī (मञ्जरी) MARVâRID (مروارید)
MEANING:
This name derives from Latin “margarīta” (perla) via Ancient Greek “margarī́tēs ‎(μαργᾰρῑ́της)”, meaning “pearl”, from the name of a legendary third century Saint. The word is related to “marg” from “marq” or “marka”, meaning "chicken", probably because pearls looked like small bird eggs. It became less popular between the 16th century and 18th century, but became more common again after this period, becoming the second most popular name in the United States in 1903. It may be related to the Sanskrit word “mañjarī” (cluster of flowers, pearl) or it may be related to the Persian “marvârid” (a pearl or daughter of light). 1) Blessed Margaret of Castello (1287–1320) is an Italian Roman Catholic Church patron of the poor, crippled, and the unwanted. 2) Saint Margaret of Scotland (~ 1045–1093), also known as Margaret of Wessex and Queen Margaret of Scotland, was an English princess of the House of Wessex. Margaret was sometimes called “The Pearl of Scotland”.
