Mirkin Name Meaning
Jewish (eastern Ashkenazic): metronymic from the Yiddish female personal name Mirke, a pet form of the Biblical Hebrew name Miryam, a very ancient name of uncertain etymology, perhaps meaning ‘wished-for child’, from an Egyptian root mrj with the addition of the Hebrew feminine diminutive suffix -am.
