Thoughts on Merit?
Just wanted to get some feedback on this name before it officially goes on my list. What are your thoughts/opinions/feelings towards Merit? And should I spell it Merit or Merritt? I know they are technically 2 different names, which one is more appealing?
My "list," puny I know...
Asher (yes, for a girl.)My cherished daughter, Rowan Jane. ~b. 10/2011~
Sawyer ~ Aven ~ Elowen ~ Sage ~ Eilonwy ~ Eleanor
Morgan ~ Asher ~ ___ ~ ___ ~ Currently trying to fill the blanks...
Trying for #2 in January 2014.

I know a little girl named Merit, and it's very precious on her. She's a sweet, round-faced, blond two year old. I personally prefer it by leaps and bound above Sawyer and Asher for a girl and think it goes the best as a sister for Rowan.
As for the spelling, I think I prefer Merit to Merritt. However, I think this is mostly because of my personal associations (Merit = coworker's daughter; Merritt = annoying boy who I went to high school with). If you're up in the air about it, I'd go with the meaning you like the best.

I love Merit Mostly for the aforementioned ancient Egyptian connection. In the second part of that programme I finally saw it written down. It seems the direct hieroglyphics to English is 'Meryt' but I think Merit is probably better. A basic Google says it means 'beloved'. Adorable all round!~Boys~

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.
