I recently learned that actress Alexis
Knapp and her baby daughter both have the middle name Merizalde
, and I am curious to learn what the name's meaning and origin are. I am guessing it may be of Germanic origin, with the first element derived from mari
"famous". The second element is more difficult, but given that it reminds me of the name Griselda
, it may come from hild
I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this. Thank you for your time. :)
