Mersey is a gender-neutral name tied to the always-trendy Mercy. It was first adopted by the Puritans in the 17th century as a name of virtue. Mersey has English origins and means "compassion" and "forbearance" and is shared with a river near Liverpool and the county Merseyside. Other experts point to Mersey's French roots and the form Marcy, brought to England during the Norman Conquest of 1066. In this case, it may mean "rendered to Mars" or "warlike," after Marcus and the Roman god Mars. Lastly, Mersey may hail from Latin merces, meaning "wages" or "reward." Whichever speaks to baby's heritage, they're sure to fight their battles with kindness and reap the rewards!
