In Martin Chuzzlewit the awful Mr Pecksniff has two daughters named Mercy and Charity. He is one of the most hypocritical characters in all literature! The girls, who are materialistic and out for themselves, are known as Merry and Cherry.

A notable person from American history is Mercy Lewis, one of the Afflicted Girls during the Salem, Massachusetts Witchcraft Trials of 1692, who combined ended up causing the hanging of 19 people and the brutal death-by-torture of Giles Corey. Ironically, despite her name, she was not very merciful when it came to accusing people of witchcraft, having actively testified for 16 different cases.
