What is the meaning of the name Maryam? Is it the same as Mariam?


This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

Maryam is another spelling of the name Mariam, which is the Arabic word for Mary, mother of prophet Jesus (peace be upon them). Maryam and Mariam are both acceptable spellings, and you can also use Mary and other Western-style versions of this name (such as Maria). For the details of this name see the main entry here: Mariam.

    As your question has already been answered (and perfectly so), i just wanted to mention – this is solely my opinion and nothing more – that i prefer the spelling “Mariam” as in the UK “Maryam” is most likely to be pronounced as “Mary-yam”.
