I really love my name and I thank my parents for giving me that name, but some people always pronounced my name wrong like Merl, Meller, Merrer and many more. When someone asks me my name I always say it clear and loud because they pronounce it wrong often.

Meryl Davis, the American ice dancer who bears this name, is one of the most beautiful, hard-working, graceful, and talented people I've ever seen. I WILL name my daughter this someday and it's only because of her.

I think that Meryl is a nice and beautiful name for a girl. I like this name, but I probably won't use it.

I could have SWORN that Meryl meant/could also mean "black bird" - I'm assuming as a feminine variation of Merle.

My name is Merril. It is not in the database, but my parents found it in an unusual name book, so the spelling is NOT made up. I LOVE my name SOOOO much! I like my spelling the best, but if it wasn't spelled like that, I'd like Meryl second best. In the unusual name book, the name Merril was derived fron myrrh, and I love that. Merrill is a school in my state, and Merrell is a shoe company, and I HATE it when people ask me "Merrell? Like the shoe?" or "You were named after a middle school?" I get mad that that they would think my parents would name me after that. People also spell my name wrong ALL the time. I get things like Merrill, Merill, Meryl, ect, but I don't mind THAT much. What I do mind is if they think I'm saying Merrilyn or Murriel when I introduce myself. Although though there are many obstacles to get through with this name, I wouldn't trade it for the world.

So pretty. When I think of this name I think of a pretty, loving, and kind girl. If I had a daughter this is what I might name her.

I've been mad a long time for being given this name. But I've gotten over it. Because everyone made fun of me or called me Merl. Oh boy I hated it. But I did get some cute nicknames over the years. And some not so much, but whatever. Thanks to the one who referenced the book it's in- I believe my mother told me once she got my name from a book she read.

My real name is actually Meryl, and I love it. I love my parents for giving it to me. People tend to see me as exotic because of it, and I am just a typical American mutt!

For some apparent reason, to me, the name Meryl is a lot prettier than Muriel. I think it is a lot easier to pronounce, and just seems more feminine than Muriel.

This is actually the Welsh spelling, it's not an English name except for people of Welsh extraction. Baby books define it the same way you have done for MUIRGHEAL, so I imagine it's the Welsh version of the Irish name.
