Meaning: Bitterness Tower Origin: French
The French name Manon (pronounced ma-no or ma-KNOWN) derives from Marie – ultimately originating from the original Hebrew name Maryam, meaning ‘Bitterness’. This is the same thread that the name Mary comes from,
Manon is also considered a diminutive of Madeline, which derives from Magdalene, meaning ‘From Magdala’, and Magdala means ‘Tower’.
Manon is similar to names Isabeau, Harlow and Cleo because of its vogueish ‘O’ sound ending. It also reminds me of fresh M names like Marin, Maple and Maven.
