The direct translation of MaryAnn in Hawaiian is Maikai Hoku O' Ke Kai, which means graceful star of the sea. This is the direct translation and NOT the English version of the name that tourists are given that is modified to sound Hawaiian, which would be Malia Ana. This translation is from the true meaning of the name which is a combination of Mary, the Holy Virgin full of "grace" and is also related to star because of significance and sea because Mother Mary is somehow related to the Ocean/Sea and I apologise for not giving the full and correct explaination now, as I do not have the document that was made for me. This is my name and I live in Hawaii.

Sadly, this name is slang for a gay man.

In the Irish folksong "The Wee Falorie Man" the Wee Falorie Man has a sister Mary Ann. It is in the second verse.

A combo of two great names, this name should be revived!

I disagree, any combination name with "Mary" (like Marybeth or Marylou) sounds incredibly outdated.

The name Maryann was given to 114 baby girls born in the US in 2012. It's a very sweet name that's due for a comeback, I don't think it's dated in a bad way like Ethel or Tiffany, although it is oftentimes associated with a certain generation.

Mary Ann "Polly" Nichols was one of the Whitechapel murder victims. Her death has been attributed to the notorious unidentified serial killer Jack the Ripper, who is believed to have killed and mutilated at least five women in the Whitechapel area of London from late August to early November 1888.
