I love this! It's so joyful and musical. I'm just not sure whether the meaning is *too* good -- would it be a burden?

helenlouise Says:


I know of a Merrily who was a couple of years below at school. I've always thought it was a really weird name. She goes by Mels now I think.

I love the sound of this name and the nickname Merri. It would probably be near the top of my girls list if it weren't for the "row, row, row your boat" song.
