    I like the idea of the ancient Egyptian connection, but the name feels so boxy to me. My first association is "demerit." Damn Catholic school.

    Any interest in Asherah? I think it's so breathy and lovely. "She who walks in the sea."

    I don't know. I've never heard of it before. My first instinct would be to pronounce it mare-it, the same as Merit, because of "mare" the female horse being pronounced that way.
    But Merit definitely has the upper hand in always being pronounced correctly. I can't imagine another way to say it.

    I believe it's also considered a virtue name. I'm not religious in the least but I suppose "deserving" isn't the worst of the virtues to have a name associated with.

    Oh, we're not religious either. Atheists actually. Does it come off as religious or Puritanical?

    I have considered Asherah, it's beautiful in theory but I knew a girl in high school named Sherah and she was a horrible, gross person so I can't get that image out of my head. I love the meaning.
