Mertie is a feminine name of Latin and Irish origin to connect baby to the land and sea. A variant of Myrtle, this name can connect baby to the lush evergreen plant known for its dark green leaves and white, star-shaped flowers. If you’ve got a love for Greek mythology, myrtle is also associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. This is sure to celebrate your little one’s mystical side. Mertie may also come from the Irish name Muirchertach. Coming from the Old Irish word muir, meaning “sea,” Muirchertach can tranlate to “sea navigator” or “mariner.” For a name that encourages baby’s adventurous side, Mertie can be the first step of their lifelong voyage.
