Better for a Girl or a Boy?
Is the name Merritt better suited for a girl or a boy, or does it sound equally good for both... & what do you think of it?

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~

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

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
