Reply to: The real ethnicity of the name Cheryl by cheryl
Welcome to our laboratory and playground Cheryl :) Lemme propose an alternative to Nanaea 's very elegant approach.
Assuming that "Cheryl " is derived from the fruit Cherry , one can trace Cheryl to the Greek "kerasos" (cherry) => "cerasus" (Latin) => cerise, cherry, kirsche etc (contemporary languages).... As a matter of fact there is a very early recorded Mycenaean *male* name "Keraso" (George Babiniotis, *Hellenic Lexicon*).
