    This is what a search on 'think baby names' came up with for boys:

    Caelan ... Cailean relates to Saint Columba (see Calum) as Crisdean does to Christ and Moirean to Mary. [4]

    Darnley ... was the second husband of Mary ...

    Gilmore ... "Servant of the Virgin Mary." [3]

    Joachim ... Joachim was the name of the Virgin Mary's father ... [10]

    Joe ... Joemar is occasionally used as a blend of Joseph and Mary ... [3]

    Joram ... Jorim was an ancestor of Mary. [1]

    Kenan ... an ancestor of Mary ... [2]

    Mabry ... and ma- may refer to the month of May or Mary. [5]

    Mario ... From Marius. Also used as masculine form of Mary (Latin) "star of the sea" and variant of Mark ... [3]

    Marion ... Variant of Mary (Latin) "star of the sea" ... [1]



    Mayes ... or to the veneration of the Virgin Mary ... [1]

    Merritt ... Also possibly "little renowned one" or derived from Mary (Latin) "star of the sea". [3]
