Gender: M Meaning of Merrick: "fame, power" Origin of Merrick: Anglo-Welsh

A strong, attractive surname name with a mix of possible origins: either from the Welsh first name Meuric,which is a form of Maurice, and contains Germanic elements meaning fame and power, or from a Scottish Gaelic word meaning a fork in a river or a road, which led to the name of several places named Merrick in Scotland.

Despite its ancient history, Merrick these days sounds more modern than the somewhat tired Derek.
