This was the name of one of the three good fairies in Walt Disney's classic masterpiece, "Sleeping Beauty".

Makes me think of a happy castrated goat. (castrated male goats are called wethers).

Sorry, but I would NOT call a BOY Meriwether. It sounds like a girls' name to me and would actually be really pretty on a girl, but on a BOY? Sorry, it just sounds really fluttery and efeminite! Any boy with that name would probably be teased mercilessly by his peers.

Not only would he be teased mercilessly by his peers he would not be taken seriously in the professional world. Yes this is a pretty name. It's a bit old fashioned, not so trendy and very classy. I would consider it for a middle name.

Such a happy name! It ought to be used more often! It's gorgeous! I wouldn't mind using it! I might give a son with this name the nickname "Merri," and his twin brother Peregrine would be called "Pip!"

This name is so funny.

I would love it if this name came back. Some high brow movie star should name their kid this, just to see if it catches on.

P.s. Merry's full name in Lord of the Rings is Meriadoc Brandybuck, not Meriwether.

A character from Susan Cooper's young adult novel 'Over Sea, Under Stone,'-- the first book in 'The Dark is Rising' Sequence-- bears this name.

I have never been able to convince myself that Meriwether is a masculine name, even though I loved studying about Lewis & Clark back in school. Perhaps it's because Meriwether is the name of one of the good fairies in "Sleeping Beauty" (the other two being Flora and Fauna), one of my favorite Disney movies growing up. Meriwether will always sound feminine to me. In fact, I think it would be really cool to see this on a baby girl today.

Not a fan of this one. It would be cute on a little boy, but no good on a grown man who wants to be taken seriously, and unfortunate on a depressed teenager.

In Kaori Yuki's series "Godchild," she uses "Mary Weather" as a first name for one of her characters, only the character is female. They call her "Mary" for short.

I wouldn't mind seeing this come back as a name. And I for one fail to see how a man with this name wouldn't be taken "seriously" in the professional world. He would have the higher professional ground as any employer who ridiculed his name obviously dropped out of high school. EVERYONE who graduated high school in America knows Meriwether is Lewis' first name. If I were a man named Meriwether, I wouldn't work for an ignoramus who ridiculed my name.
