- Meanings and history of the name Marika
It is a New Zealand name meaning quiet and careful.
I have found in Hebrew it means Bitter, while in Japanese it means Jasmine or Jasmine tree. It has a wide range of meanings, spellings and pronounciations thoughout the world which is what I really like about the name. I could say my name is Marika in Italy and they would say Mah-R/Lee-Kah even though I pronounce it Mer-Ee-Ka. It's a great name, in my opinion.
