Mavis and Merle or Merla would be sweet to have for sister names because Mavis means "song thrush" or "song bird" and Merle and Merla means "blackbird".

My grandfather was named Kirby MERLE Ramsey (b.1888). He used Kirby for personal situations & MERLE in business matters.
My father was named Kirby MERLE Ramsey Jr (b.1921). I never knew of a time when he even spoke the name. He was always Kirby.
MY name is Kirby MERLE Ramsey III (b.1949). Growing up I was called Kim. I don't where that came from. As I entered the "Working World" I went by Kirby. Now that I am retired & in a small town that is new to me I am going by the name MERLE.
Our daughter had a baby girl in 2016. Guess what? That's right! She named her daughter Kirby. Go figure!
In 16 days the name Kirby MERLE Ramsey will be 133 years + 3 months old.
I just hope MERLE is going to be around at least another 80 years.

Never heard of this, but it sounds very unpleasant.

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".

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.
