Merida is a Spanish feminine name tied to Mérida in the Badajoz province of Spain. Around 25 BCE, this ancient city would’ve been known more widely as Augusta Emerita, which means “earn out” or “merit” in Latin. If you’re a Disney and Pixar buff, the character that may come to mind is Princess Merida from the movie Brave. Her independence, emotional strength, and archery skills make for a powerful role model for baby. By teaching baby from day one that they’re the master of their own fate, they’ll be able to do anything they put their mind to.
