Pronunciation[edit]

Proper noun[edit]

Marie

  1. A female given name.
    • 1380s, Wycliffe version of the Bible, Matthew 1:18:
      Whanne Marie, the modir of Jhesu, was spousid to Joseph, bifore thei camen togidere, she was foundun hauynge of the Hooli Goost in the wombe.
    • 1993, Barbara Vine (Ruth Rendell). Asta's Book (ISBN 0517587963), page 105:
      We are going to call her Marie. For once we are in agreement about something, if for different reasons. I just happen to like the name, it's my second favourite girl's name after Swanhild, it has such a pretty sound. Rasmus, of course, likes it because it can be English and all things English he adores. 'The English can pronounce it,' he says, by which he means they pronounce it "Maar-rie", as in Marie Lloyd whom we've seen on the stage. 'The French can pronounce it too,' I said in my way, 'for what that's worth,' but he doesn't mind what I say at the moment.
