Comments for MARIN:

Males named Marin are also found in Croatia. This could be because of the Venetian influence on the coast. Although, there are many male inhabitants of the city of Dubrovnik with the name which suggests a different influence. Marin Drzic, a writer from Dubrovnik alive in the 1500s (who happens to be the person I was named after), is probably the most famous. [noted -ed]

My cousin's name is Maryn and she is a girl. Her mom spelled it this way to be unique. I always thought of Maryn as a girl name and I am surprised the spelling Marin is a boy name. I know another girl named Marin who spells it just like that.

My last name is Marin. I never thought it was a first name. My last name comes from Spain way back in the days when Spain invaded the Aztec and fooled them. Oh well, that's another story.

Marin is a beautiful name for a girl. I like the spelling Maryn the best. The one girl I know named Maren pronounces it mare-in.

I love this name! However, I've seen it on the female side of the top 1000! What the hell? It's a Romanian male name. The proper feminine form is Marina. ALthough most parents probably don't care and are using this as a kreatyv spyllyng of Maren. Be careful when using names like these. If your daughter is named Marin and she goes to Romania, she'll get laughed at! Please save the embarrassment and pick something else.

Marin is the name of an important female character in the game The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. So, I associate this name with idealism and music.

I love this name for a boy and it'll be my son's name. I can't believe how somebody can use this beautiful boys' name for a girl.

I normally don't like when boys names are used for girls, but I would probably name a future daughter Marin Rose. I know it's a male name in Romania and other parts of Europe, but I don't think Marin is too masculine to be used as a girls name in the US.

I think Marin is a name for a girl. It's more sweet then masculine.

I'm from Albania and my name is Marin. There was an Albanian historian from 1400s named Marin Barleti. Definitely a guy's name. I know Marin Hinkle from Two and Half Men is a she, but in Europe there is Marina for girls and Marin for boys. In Italy there is Marino Marini, a singer who sang about a girl named Marina. Again pretty straight forward, Marin = boy. Marin County in California is a very affluent county...
