Mariana is the subject of a poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson and pre-Raphelite paintings based on the poem.

"She only said, 'The night is dreary,
He cometh not, ' she said;
She said, 'I am aweary, aweary,
I would that I were dead!' "

Don't like it. Too common and trashy.

Not quite "people" related, but the Mariana Trench is the deepest location on the surface of the Earth's crust, and is located in the western North Pacific Ocean.

I really like this name, it sounds very sweet and innocent. I have a best friend named Mariana, and she is sweet and innocent as her name sounds.

Pronounced [muh-ree-UH-nuh] or [muh-RYUH-nuh] in Portuguese. In Portugal it's very common among young girls.

I love this name, I think it's so graceful. Both of my closest friends are named Mariana, and I love saying this name. It's also a baroque city in Brazil.

My name is Mariana. Honestly I have never liked it because growing up and living in Illinois people who are not of Latino origin have had a hard time with spelling and pronunciation. However everyone around me seems to really like it... I always get compliments. In Spanish, I see why my parents liked it and I like it much better pronounced correctly (Mah-Ri-Ahna) and I also like the nickname Mari my grandmother gave me. If you encourage your child to be proud of her name and its pronunciation, I see no reason as to why it would be a problem.

It's my name and I don´t like it. It was one of the most common names in Brazil in the 1980´s. If you´re walking along the streets and someone shouts "Mariana" 6 or more girls turn around thinking they are being called. In my first year at university there were 3 Marianas in my class. We were called by our surnames to avoid confusion.
My mother named me Mariana because she thinks it´s a sweet name. She wanted to name me Rebecca but my father doesn´t like it, so they agreed on Mariana.

Commom nicknames: Mari, Naná.

My best friends name is Mariana. It's actually a Spanish name. I think it's an okay name, but she really suits the name. Everyone one says her name as Maryanna, when it's really said as Mari- on- a.

Mariana is such a beautiful name.

One of the characters in Shakespeare's 'Measure for Measure' is named Mariana. The poet Tennyson also wrote a poem which he named 'Mariana' which was inspired by Shakespeare's play. Additionally, inspired by both Shakespeare and Tennyson, the pre-raphaelite painter John Everett Millais painted his famous work 'Mariana'.
