Merit (spelt this way) is an ancient Egyptian girl's name. So girl for me. It's one of my favourites. I don't like the surname spelling though and don't see any point in using it when a legitimate first name spelling already exists.~Boys~

I love the sound of Merit/Merritt/Marit/Meret. The spelling makes the difference for me. Merritt looks more masculine but the actual meaning is genderless. Merit is a word/virtue so it's unisex. Marit is feminine (had a classmate with this name). The Egyptian goddess is Meret
ETA: To answer the question, I prefer Merritt on a boy

Callen Sage is our boy name, Emmeline Jay is our girl name.
Fingers crossed that one day he'll agree to Holden Eli, Beckett Rome, Declan Reeves; Violet Carraway, Isla Maven, and Aspen Olivia.
