Merrick Meaning and Origin
Merrick is a boy’s name of Anglo-Welsh origin, meaning: “fame, power.” As an English surname Merrich is derived from the Old English word “mære” or “maere,” meaning “boundary” or “border.” It could have initially been a name given to someone who lived near a boundary or landmark. Merrick is also a variant of the Welsh name “Meurig,” which is derived from the Latin name “Maurus.” Meurig was a popular name in Wales and is associated with Saint Meurig, who was a bishop in the 6th century. A name for the future ruler, Merrick, is a unique choice with a stately feel. Sounds regal to us!
