Meaning & Origins

Probably a contracted form of Meriel, but also associated with the small class of girls' names derived from birds, since it is identical in form with Old French merle ‘blackbird’ (Latin merula). The name came to public notice in the 1930s with the actress Merle Oberon (1911–79, born Estelle Merle O'Brien Thompson).

English (chiefly Norfolk): 1. occupational name for the master of a ship, Middle English skipper (from Middle Low German, Middle Dutch schipper). 2. from an agent derivative of Middle English skip(en) ‘to jump or spring’ (apparently of Scandinavian origin), hence an occupational name for an acrobat or professional tumbler, or nickname for a high-spirited person. 3. occupational name for a basket-maker, from an agent derivative of Middle English skipp(e), skepp(e) ‘basket’, ‘hamper’ (Old Norse skeppa).
