    Patricia(My proper name lol) lots of different meanings but i like this one

    an Incredibly smart , strong, confident and
    beautiful woman, who likes to be unique. enjoys music, movies, and being
    with her friends. Defiantly one of a kind, and any one who spends more
    than 3 seconds with her knows how special a person she is, and those who
    do know her consider themselves to be the luckiest people in the world.

    Meryl a girl's name of English origin and meaning "shining sea". Variant of Muriel.

    Also possibly an invented name at the beginning of the 20th century,.... Yeah that could be true because mine is an amalgamation of my first and middle names. Which mean ..... First name of Greek origin and meaning "light green semiprecious gemstone". The word is of Indian origin, from the Sanskrit term "veruliya" considered a token of good luck. Middle name means.... "star of the sea"
