Hi!
I just watched the new pixar movie Brave and the heroine is Merida

What are your thoughts? ...

We already have Dd  isla

Would it suit and do you like it?

It's the name of a Korean bicycle company so no.

It makes me think of a lovely city in Mexico. The most delicious sopa de lima I ever found.

These are all good associations. I haven't seen Brave so if I heard the name called out at school assembly I'd drift off into a pleasant daydream of cool, shaded courtyards and salty margaritas.

I prefer Nerida

I like Aurora/Briar/Belle (Disney princess names, though that's NOT why I like them...) so I can't talk too much smack.

Merida doesn't do much for me personally but it's not the worst thing I've ever heard. I wouldn't care at all about a Korean bicycle company but then again I don't care that Levi is jeans to some people or Sephora is makeup while Anais is perfume, either.

Why not go for a scottish name? Your DD is a bit like Islay maybe you could have skye?

Brave was such a lovely movie, I just watched it the other day too.  If you like Merida go for it original.gif.

I can still here Billy Connelly saying it with the accent, so sweet.

My niece has Meriden as her middle name. Pretty sure that's the spelling...It's quite nice, but i do like Nerida as PP suggested.

Quite nice bikes but not nice enough to name my child after. Have you considered Colnago?

Sorry - take the 'i' out and you have the Italian word for sh*t.

I do like Nerida, Meredith, and some others mentioned.

Nerida is an old lady name.

IMO naming sisters Isla and Skye would be quite silly. wacko.gif


Merida doesnt really appeal to me and cant put my finger on why - doesnt worry me that its a korean bike company- many names are associated with a product - Cooper's beer doesnt seem to be affecting popularity of Cooper as a name shrug.gif

The first thing I noticed was it's an anagram for 'I dream'

I like Merridy.

New one to me.  How do you pronounce it?


Merinda and Nerida are really nice names.

#21 skylark

Posted 23 November 2012 - 07:20 PM

I think it's fine. Reminds me of Nerida which sounds very dated to my ear though.

Why I thought she is going for a scottish sounding name. Maybe she is not but I don't think it is fair to say it is silly to name a second child Skye when she called the first Island.

#23 YodaTheWrinkledOne

Posted 23 November 2012 - 07:48 PM

I like it.  But I also don't mind Nerida, Meredith, Meridee and Melody/Melodie

#24 neddyteddy

Posted 23 November 2012 - 08:01 PM

My name is Nerida original.gif nn Ned.. I have been called Merida and Merinda many times, I don't really mind original.gif

You don't hear it often at all,  in Aboriginal it means red water lilly.

Her first DD is Isla, not Island - Isla is well established normal name. Is not the same as Island any more than, say. Courtney is the same as Country, they just happen to be similar words..


Are you seriously asking why Isla and Skye woudl be silly together?

I actually like both names but together they sound like Isle of Skye and  I think that sounds silly.
The same as, say, Adelaide and Sydney - not silly names in themselves but bit silly together.
