MARIN Family History

Recorded in over fifty surname spellings thoughout Europe, including Marie, Maria, and Mary, with diminutives such as Marielle, Mariete, Marini, Maryon, and Marusik, and metronymics Marians, Marriott, Maryson, Mariyushkin and Manyurin, this is a Crusader 12th century surname. It probably derived from the Biblical and Hebrew name Maryam, as its main popularity followed the famous Crusades of the 12th century intended to free the Holy Land from the Muslims. The returning knights and warriors often gave their children names associated with the bible, in commemoration of their efforts, even though all the expeditions were ultimately unsuccessful.
