Meanings and history of the name Sheri

My mother told me as I was growing up that my name meant, "Beautiful," or "My beloved." I guess that's close enough to the French meaning shown here. My sisters both have VERY unusual names that my mother made up; I was always half-glad mine was more common and half-mad that she didn't bother to make up mine the way she did theirs. Can't win! However, as opposed to the one the younger woman mentions above, having a name that can be spelled a zillion ways (like Lori/Laurie...)is a PAIN. If you don't spell it slowly for people, they are destined to get it wrong. Oh, well, I agree with one thing--Sheri will always sound better to me than Robin--or Ethel, which was the grandmother I might've been named after!
