I noticed in the history of "mary", that although you had the origin as hebrew for miriam, you stated that the meaning was unknown but that the theories were "sea of bitterness" "rebellious" and "wished for child". I was wondering if you know how those theories came about. I often see the origin or meaning as "bitterness" when I look on general name websites and I saw "wished for" on Christian name website. It's very confusing. Of coarse I liked the info about it being from the egyptian word "mry" meaning "beloved".
