We wanted something unusual for a name and we also wanted it to have meaning.
I was sitting alone one day and I swear this name came out of the blue! It's a combination of my grandma Mary, my husband's mother Agnes, and my mom Sandi.
Mar + es + sa = Maressa
I just love the way this sounds and right away it seemed to fit perfectly! I even had a dream that we had a girl and I was calling her Maressa, so it seemed my subconcious like it, too.
