Merritt comes from the English surname which has the meaning of “boundary gate.” It is a strong name that sounds powerful when you say it. I like this about the name because I prefer names for little boys that are powerful. This is one of those names that I can just see sticking as a popular name for a little boy. I also think that it is the type of name that is only going to grow and become more popular in the future.[td_ad_box spot_id="custom_ad_3"]Continue to #6 Below!
