It may surprise you to learn that the name Merida, popularized by the first Pixar Princess in 2012’s Brave, is not actually of Scottish origin, but is actually from the Spanish language. Merida is also the name of several cities and places around the world and translates as “one who has achieved a high place of honor”. The name comes from the Latin “emeritus”, meaning earned or merited. Merida spiked in popularity as a first name for baby girls after the success of Brave. Merida is the first red-haired princess since Ariel and the first to not have a love interest.
