I love this, I like the extra 'bite' the final 'm' gives the name. A sweet and unusual form of Mary, less 'stuffy' than Miriam (although Miriam is also pretty). I say it as "MAH-ree-am", don't know if that's right.

There was a very nice and smart girl in my high school named Marriam. I believe it was a variation on this name because she hailed from Pakistan. She pronounced it like "Maryanne" but with an "m" at the end.

I have a friend named Maryam who is half Egyptian and half Filipino. She said the name is actually supposed to be pronounced MAHR-yom, but since everyone pronounced it MAYR-ree-um, she just stuck with that.
