"My name is Merton. It is pronounced Mer' ton.
I have never met a person with the same first name so I feel proud and unique. It was my father's middle name. He was born in 1901 and I was born in 1936." Apr. 4, 2010:
"I associate this name with Mrs Merton, the faux pensioner on British television which made the name of English actress Caroline Aherne who created her and wore a grey wig to cover her real hair-do which is blonde and straight (Ms Aherne is only in her 40s at the present time) as well as granny glasses, which Ms Aherne doesn't wear in real life. There is also, however, the British comedian Paul Merton (no relation), presenter of the TV series 'Room 101' among other shows he has been in over the years." May. 26, 2008:
