Where does the name Marygold & Co come from?
Marigold, as you know, is a flower.
It’s name originally came from middle English, over 500 years ago and was a combination of the Virgin Mary and Gold.
Back then people were poor and did not have savings accounts, money pools, or debit cards. They did go to Church and were asked to tithe to help support the local priest. Well, being poor, they did not have much in the way of hard currency or money, but they gave what they could afford which was sometimes only a small bright flower that looked like gold. They would lay these flowers at the foot of Mary’s statue. Hence the name- Mary’s Gold, which over time turned into Marygold and eventually Marigold.
