I got it from Mariska Hargitay, but I think it is gorgeous because I like the names Maris and Marissa/Marisa, and I think it is so similar to those name that I could see it being used. Plus the K at the end makes it a little funky in a good way.Maris or Riska would make cute nicknames, although I'll admit Riska would probably only be for the really brave. :)

Mariska /MAR eesh ka/ is a Hungarian diminutive form of Maria. The actress Mariska Hargitay (born Mariska Magdolna Hargitay in 1964)'s father was Hungarian.
