Personal experiences with the name Meri: | Edit

This is actually my name and from what I understand it means: Joyous. The name is pronounced more like Mire, the E sounds like an I sound and the I sounds like E sound. I never liked the name, but it is unique and very uncommon. Most people pronounce it like Mary. I have seen 2 others with the name. My mother got the name from a great grandmother in the family somewhere down the line.

My name is Meri and it is pronounced just like "Mary." I love it! I love that it's an older-fashioned name, but the spelling is very unique. I've never met another person with the same spelling.
