25 Days of Christmas: Merry

Our Christmas name of the day is Merry. Merry is an English girls' name meaning "light-hearted or happy." She is more commonly seen as a word in the phrase "Merry Christmas." While she is not currently ranked in the United States, Merry's peak was in the year 1954, where she reached #469.

If her similarity to Mary makes her seem too old-fashioned to you, you might consider Merry as a middle name. She would sound lovely and festive with many names, and can soften the sounds of harsher and more serious appellations.

Merry is a nice choice for a holiday name, especially if you want something that sounds classic, but entertains the holiday spirit. Check back tomorrow for our next Christmas name!
