My baby names book (which is semi-reliable!) lists Marilla as an English elaboration of Mary. Seems about right to me. reckons it's a variation of Muriel, Celtic, meaning "Shining Sea". A few different sites share this definition. thinks it's a flower name - they don't say it but maybe from Amaryllis?

I'm betting on the Mary origin. :-)
