Diminutive of Mercury, Roman mythological name
"Roman messenger god"

Merc Origin and Meaning

The name Merc is boy's name of Latin origin.
Merc has been introduced to the American public by the network executive character on Showtime's Episodes, and is a contemporary-sounding short form of the Roman god and planet name Mercury. Mercury, from the Latin for trade or wages, was the god of tradesmen and travelers and is the fast-moving first planet in our solar system.

With the revival of many Roman names, Mercury, along with Juno and Jupiter, has a good chance of rising in the modern world. And Merc certainly is a playground-ready short form.
