How do you spel Annemarie in Hebrew?
The name "Annemarie" is French in origin, but the two sections come from Latin:
Those two words originate with the Hebrew names for Hannah and Miriam, after passing through the Aramaic of early Christians, the Greek of the Gospels, the Latin of the Vulgate, etc etc.
Hannah is חַנָּה (Channah - with the Ch as in Chanukah or Loch)
and Miriam is מִרְיָם (Miryam)
"Hannah" means "she who is graceful"
It's unclear what Miriam originally meant. In Hebrew it would translate to "bitter sea" (and she did stand by the bitter sea). But others think it's of Egyptian origin and means "beloved one."
