The Mari surname

Hi my name is Eric Mari I dated my ancestry back to my great grandparent Juan Mari who emigrated from Islas Canarias (Spain) to Cuba.
I found that our surname came from a profession “sailor” in Spanish (Marinero) but I don’t’ know much abut the history or ruts of the name. Also I have not been able to find the “Mari” coat of arms, just its description. If you can help me in my search I would be more than happy.

Thank you
Eric Mari

To David, I would appreciate very much if you provide me with a copy of the Mari coat of arms, I have tried to find it on the net but with no luck. One question, did the Mari last name originated in Italy or in Spain? The word “Mare” is sea in Italian if I’m not mistaken in Spanish is only “Mar”. My wife wanted to know how do you pronounce the last name Mari if as “Mary” or as “Maree” I’m sorry I don’t how to write it phonetically

Thank you

I forgot to say that the 'A' is pronounced
as in 'Safari'. Place the 'M' in place of the
'F' rrrooll the 'R' again and that's it.

Giulio I’ve pronounced our last name the same way you are telling me all my life. The Spanish Way (or Italian if you wish :-) ) but here in the US every body is always trying to pronounce it like "Mary" even the priest, after 7 sessions, married my wife with somebody called Eric "Mary" for the enjoyment of the family. By the way do you or anybody that is reading this can send me The Coat of arms from the Mari Family and the history… I know that this part is going to be hard because everybody's forefathers in this forum comes from a different country :-) (I’m from Cuba with roots in Canary Islands, Spain) and every story is different, but it would be interesting to put it together.
About the kingdom… the only region or land I have found that bears our last name is in Russia ??
Send any information to

the Mari surname that I know comes from other place in the world.
I don't know how to write it in english or whatever other Latin language because it is a semitic name.
the Origins are from the near east from an Ancient city who had extinct by a Babylonic king who's name was Hammurabi.
the Mari city today lies in Syria on the border with Iraq. the Mari offsprings of today that knows that their surname has same meaning will know too that they are originally Hebrew and that their ancestors once ruled a Great city .

I have no Idea what it means because it doesn't have a meaning in hebrew ... i think that it's in the ancient Aramic language .
