Origin of the name MERIEL.
Etymology of the name MERIEL.
Meaning of the baby name MERIEL.

  

MERIEL.  A variant form of Scottish Muriel (q.v.), meaning "little Mary."
    Dame Meriel Lucy Talbot (d. 1956), was a British public servant and women's welfare worker.  Meriel Forbes (d. 2000), was a British actress. (Wiki)

    MURIEL, MERIEL.  Littleton derives this female name from Gr. μυρον, which is rendered "a liquid perfume or oil ointment, any sweet ointment."  Others say from μυρρα, myrrh, a plant like myrrh; but if so it probably came through the A.S. myrre, murre.  It is found written Muriell, Meriall, Meriel, Maryell; and as a surname Merrill, Mirihel, Miriel, Myrill, Muryell, and Muriel; and is no doubt derived from Muireal, a Gaelic diminutive of Muire, i.e. Mary. (Praenomina, Charnock, 1882).
