Meredith is the only name that dh and I both like so far.
I like the fact that it isn't too popular but am
surprised quite how far down it is on the ons list.
What are people's opinions please?

I'm not really a fan, but I can't pinpoint why.

I do however, really like Merryn.

SummerRoberts Mon 02-Oct-17 20:23:44

I absolutely love it. So beautiful.

I know a Meredith with the nn of Merry, I like it and she is a fab person.

MikeUniformMike Mon 02-Oct-17 20:27:31

I think it sounds a bit American.

I think it's lovely

My uncle was called Meredith.

(no help whatsoever)

Greys Anatomy.
Can't get past that. They all called her mare as a nn

I know a Meredith, called Merry too. Maybe it is the same one Notthisnotthat

I love it, and love her!

Love it.

It's an old Welch name, given to boys. Meaning Guardian of the sea. It's my husband's middle name and my son's middle name.

The American use for girls is more recent.

I have a Meredith, nn Merry - love the name (obviously) and get lots of comments about Meredith being a pretty name.

GreySloanMemorial Mon 02-Oct-17 21:06:08

Love it, makes me think of Greys Anatomy though

Notthisnotthat Mon 02-Oct-17 21:28:38

Ooh sounds mostly positive so far!

MollyHuaCha Mon 02-Oct-17 22:27:08

This was one of the names I LOVED.

But DH said no...

Go for it!

Sophronia Mon 02-Oct-17 22:32:06

The only one I know is male.

IMissSmashHits Mon 02-Oct-17 22:33:50

I like it and also like Merri/Merry for a NN.

EmmaGrundyForPM Mon 02-Oct-17 22:33:59

The only Meredith I know is in her 50s and a complete cow, which puts me off the name. But if you like it, go for it.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 02-Oct-17 23:05:26

It's a very pretty name, love Meri, as a shortening.

numbmum83 Mon 02-Oct-17 23:09:53
