From the Irish "Máirín" ("MAH-reen"). The great Irish actress, Maureen O'Hara (born Maureen FitzSimmons), bore this name. Apparantly her mother had something against using the name "Mary" for her child, maybe fearing it was an insult to the Madonna. she must have been horrified when she found that Maureen translates roughly into "little Mary".

Maureen Johnson, the ecletic and wild character from the Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway Musical RENT by Jonathan Larson. Of all the real-life Maureens I've met, she's still the one that sticks out the most in my head and the first one that comes to mind. A very confidant character, if somewhat overboard at times, but it makes the name a very strong one in allusion to her. One-of-a-kind name for sure. "The Tango, Maureen...."
