Maryam = beloved, someone to be loved, love, pious, 19th sura of the Qur'an. Maryam or Mariam (مريم) is the Arabic name of Mary the mother of Jesus (Arabic Isa), mentioned in the Qur'an [1]. The name has the same form in Judeo-Aramaic, Armenian, and Georgian. The Hebrew variant of the name is Miriam. The meaning and origin of the name are still uncertain and there are many different theories, including "beloved" and "eminent lady". In Persian, it means tuberose (a flower). The name is very common among in Arab, Iranian and other Muslim cultures.
