Comments for MUIRÍN:

In old Ireland, the name of the Virgin Mary was considered too holy to be used. The form Muire was reserved for the Virgin Mary. Muirín means "little Virgin Mary".

Muir means "sea" in Irish, and ín is an ending which makes things little, like y in English. So Muirín can be interpreted as "little sea".
