Meredith as a baby name?

i have a horrible time with baby names. for boys i have nothing. for girls there are at least a few that are okay to me ;)

what do you think of Meredith? nicknames could be Merry or Mer. My mom's name is Mary btw. i do like less common names and this is down around number 500, if i remember correctly

thanks so much for your thoughts :)

  • You are the one that has to call you child this for the rest of you life. My SIL had to have a certain name for her first DD because it is a family name. She makes comments all the time she should have fought with her Mom and just named her what they wanted to.

  • I like Meredith- I think it is pretty and feminine, and fitting for a young girl or an adult woman.

  • cassie, i came across matilda last night and saw nicknames of tilda or tilly and i thought that was cute but crossed it off my list because i do not like matty nicknames...

    Mary, i also thought it was feminine but not like really girly or dainty, so i like that. :)

    thanks for your opinions.

  • It's not bad at all. I wouldn't personally name my child that, but if you like it, go for it. It's definitely WAY better than a lot of the "trendy, creative" names I'gve heard recently!

  • I went to high school with a girl named Meredith...we called her Mere. It is defiantly a name you don't hear if that is what your shooting for I say go for it. - I also like names you don't hear daughters name is Brooke and you don't hear that often either. Good luck.
