I have only known one lady with the name Marika and she wasn't a very nice person. It kind of turned me off this name.

I love this name. I know a girl who has it. She pronounces it ma-REE-ka.

I've only known one Marika and she always went by Mimi. And I don't blame her, I think this name would work on a person from that heritage, but Mimi wasn't very ethnic and the name just didn't really suit her.

It's a very pretty name. I also like the nickname Rika.

Can also be Japanese with MANY possible meanings depending on which kanji are chosen. I personally like jasmine (plant) 茉莉 (mari) and fragrance 香 (ka)
Some other possible kanji are:
ma:


ri:



ka:





In Japanese, this has NOTHING to do with the name Mary.

I don't know how Marika is usually pronounced, but the one person I know who has this name (they are Finnish) and they pronounce the name MAH-rIy-kha, rather than Mah-REE-kah which is how I assume this name is pronounced.

I also know a Latvian named Marika. The Latvian name day for it is July 22, according to this site - another proof that's it's used in Latvia as well.
