Personal experiences with the name Merrilee: | Edit

My name is Merrilee. My mother tried to call me Merry but no one did. My nickname is Merr. I have been called Emers and ML. Most people spell my name wrong. A lot of people say Mary Lee but it’s really like merrily merrily life is But a dream. I know one other girl from high school who had the same first name, same spelling. My niece’s best friend is also Merrilee. I neither like or hate my name. I did not like it as a kid but oftentimes people will comment on what a “pretty” name I have. I do like that there aren’t many girls with my name. It is unique but not considered odd or made up.
