My best friend's older sister is named Marika Maya. We shorten Marika to Mika (pronounced MEE-ka). I really like the name personally, especially in that combination.
Pronounced mah-REE-kah in Swedish.
Also used in Swedish. [noted -ed]
Cute.
Also used in Italy, where it's sometimes written as "Marica". Famous bearers are Marica Coco, an actress, and Marika Bianchini, a volleyball player. [noted -ed]
Marika is a classy, elegant name. I love it!
Don't really like it.
Marica is a very offensive term for a homosexual man in Spanish. This is spelled with a k and it’s a beautiful name. But people that think about using it should know what it means when it’s written with a c (in my opinion)...
I am Marika and it rarely gets shortened. I pronounce it like Maria with a K. I believe it's a Hungarian origin but looks like there's lots of us around surrounding countries now.
This is also a Georgian name. Diminutive of "Marina". [noted -ed]
Hungarian pronunciation: MAW-ri-kaw.
My given name is Marika... Nicknamed Rika by chance, NOT popular opinion OR history... I live in Northern California, USA...

In Japanese, this has NOTHING to do with the name Mary.
It's a very pretty name. I also like the nickname Rika.
I've only known one Marika and she always went by Mimi. And I don't blame her, I think this name would work on a person from that heritage, but Mimi wasn't very ethnic and the name just didn't really suit her.
