on some website maryam mean is bitter is it right or wrong

Answer

This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

"Bitter" is one of the possible meanings of the name Maryam or Mary in Hebrew, other possible meanings are "Our Lady" and "wished for child". The correct meaning of this name is not known for certain, and the reason Muslims use it is not its meaning but the fact that the mother of Prophet Isa/Jesus had this name.
