Gender: F Meaning of Merida: "one who has achieved a high place of honor" Origin of Merida: Latin

You'll probably be hearing more of this name thanks to the newest Pixar film, featuring Princess Merida, the first Pixar princess--a feisty, athletic, independent medieval Scottish girl with wild red hair. Her name, however, is not Scottish, but a Spanish place name found in both Spain and Mexico's Yucatan peninsula.

Will Merida be the next Ariel? Stay tuned.
