My husband's name is Sheyrl. I think his birth certificate was written Sheyrl and then the yr was crossed out and replaced with ry but he always spelled it Sheyrl. Does anyone know any males who spell their name that way? I've come across some Sherrills but none spelled Sheyrl or Sheryl.
There was a guy in my hometown named Sherrill. I wonder if it was a boy's name and was taken over by the girls?
Was Sherrill originally a surname?
One of my best friends is a girl named Sheryl.
