Merrick is the name which befits a boy. Though it is an English name, it is a Welsh variant of the popular name "Maurice." Maurice in turn was derived from the Roman name "Mauricius." Saint Maurice is the patron saint of infantry soldier. A Christian Roman soldier from Egypt, he was massacred to death with his friends by emperor Maximian for refusing to worship Roman gods.
