I prefer Merit too.
I like the Egyptian link - to possibly the first recorded woman in science, and in fact was watching a documentary about Merit wife of Ramose a while ago and thinking 'ooh, Merit, that's actually a pretty name'.

When i first opened this thread, i was thinking Meret, but reading everyone's reasons for loving Merit has converted me- i'm team Merit too!Proud Mama to a beautiful Juni-bug and expecting our second 27th May 2014.
I'm always on my phone so please excuse my short replies and terrible punctuation!

I prefer Merit, which I love. Meret feels more confusing and remote. Merit, cause it's a word name, is more familiar & down-to-earth feeling for me. I like that it's rare, but doesn't feel stuffy or strange. I say it like it rhymes with ferret. The name makes me think of Girl Scouts & has a 50's vibe unlike most virtue names that feel wayyy older & Puritan to me.
