Meaning:Great ruler
Meridith is a fresh take on the ancient gender-neutral Meredith. The name first emerged in the Welsh tongue as Margetiud, from the elements mere, "splendid" or "great," and iudd, meaning "lord." Some posit Meridith's first syllables stem from the Old Welsh mawredd, validating its ties to "magnificence" or "greatness." As centuries passed, and the auspicious title evolved to the soft-spoken Meridith, its meaning held strong as a "great ruler"—inspiring baby to pursue every venture with confidence.
