Comments for MARISOL:

This name in Spanish means 'sea and sun'.

The name Marisol doesn't mean 'sea and sun' at all. It's actually the union of the pet forms for the names María and Soledad. Soledad means 'loneliness' in Spanish.

To add onto what one poster said about it being a combination of Maria and Soledad - I wouldn't worry too much about Soledad meaning loneliness because the use of Soledad as a name comes from the title Maria de Soledad, given to the Virgin Mary. I don't speak Spanish, but perhaps 'soledad', like 'solitude', isn't necessarily a bad thing, maybe it can also have the more positive sense of that brings to mind peace and quiet?

All this because I love the name Marisol!

MARISOL does not mean "sea and sun." However, the phrase MAR Y SOL, which is pronounced the same way, does.

I love this graceful, lyrical and underused name.

There was a special editon AmericanGirl doll named Marisol, which is the first time I had ever heard of the name. She was a dancer and also Hispanic.

This name is really cute! I wouldn't name my kid it, but I like the way it sounds. It almost sounds like a modern way of Mary.

It could mean sea and sun, from Maris and Sol. Not the more common derivation, but really just as legit. Anyway, I both love and hate the sound, because it's so close to 'aerosol'.

I think this is a beautiful name for a little girl.
-- Patricia Underwood  10/13/2008
I like this name, but it sounds an awful lot like 'parasol'. Not like that takes anything away from the name.

Pronounced mah-ree-SOL, with a long "-ol."

Combination of Mar + i + Sol - means 'sea and sun' in Catalan. Not actually a combination of maria and sol - that's more likely to be a name like 'Maria-Soledad'.

As someone mentioned above, Marisol is often a contraction or nickname for Maria de la Soledad. The Name Day for girls named after Nuestra Senora de la Soledad (Our Lady of Solitude) is Holy Saturday (the day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday). The "solitude" of Mary refers to the time when her son Jesus was in the tomb, between his crucifixion and resurrection. [noted -ed]
