Meaning of the baby name MARGARITES.


MARGARITES (Μαργαρίτες).  Greek name meaning "pearl."  Also spelled Margarite.  The English form is Margaret.

... No name has been the occasion of more pretty fancies than Μαργαρίτες (a pearl), itself taken from the Persian term for the jewel, Murvarid (child of light), in accordance with the beauteous notion that the oysters rising to the surface of the water at night and opening their shells in adoration, received into their mouths drops of dew congealed by the moon-beams into the pure and exquisite gem, resembling in its pure pale lustre nothing so much as the moon herself, "la gran Margherita," as Dante calls her. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
