The name Merle was given to 19 boys born in the US in 2015.
Merle is the name of one of the 'Dixon' brothers, along with Daryl, on the show The Walking Dead. He's received some scrutiny from others on his name, including someone that said they "wouldn't even name their dog Merle".
Male Merles include Country artists Haggard and Watson and writer Miller. It was also used on the comic soap opera MARY HARTMAN, MARY HARTMAN as well. Dabney Coleman played Merle Jeeter, the father of a child evangelist.
In German, it's pronounced "MAIR-leh".
I love this name, mostly for the meaning of "blackbird." The other names that share this meaning are too odd sounding for my taste or in the case of "Merlin" the meaning is obscured by the famous bearer. "Merle" however, has a nice ring to it and also in a small way reminds me of merpeople too, thanks to the first three letters and the name's pronunciation.
A famous bearer of the name is actress Merle Oberon, a glamorous beauty who rose to fame in both British-made and Hollywood-made films of the 1930's. She was married to legendary British film producer Alexander Korda, and her most famous role was that of Cathy in producer Samuel Goldwyn's sumptuous 1939 adaptation of "Wuthering Heights", opposite Laurence Olivier. Her real name, however, was Queenie Thompson.
Merle is also the name of the main character in Kai Meyer's book The Water Mirror.
Merle is a popular Estonian girl's name too.
Merle is the name of a little cat-girl in the anime The Visions of Escaflowne along with the movie Escaflowne.
