Merryl is a feminine name of British origin and a variation of the Irish name Muriel. The Irish Sea separates Merryl and Muriel, and so the meaning of the "shining sea" becomes more apparent. Although her version misses an "r," Meryl Streep is by far the most famous name in any industry and one of the greatest actresses ever. She holds the record for Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, winning eight combined awards. For Sophie's Choice, Meryl studied to speak Polish fluently, and she learned it with a German accent for added authenticity! Oscar, meet Meryl. Baby Merryl won't go far wrong by following Meryl's shining star in a sea of regular stars.
