"I don?t meet many with the name Muriel. Many older people associate it with the cigars. I love the name because it I s Celtic and meaning sea bright. I?m a sailor and of Irish decent so it works for me." Jun. 9, 2021:
"I think Mariel is much prettier than Muriel. After all, in parts of the Australian film 'Muriel's Wedding' in 1994, the character Muriel (played by Toni Collette) changed her first name to Mariel, swapping the 'u' for the 'a' to make it sound not-so-grannyish and not-so-wallflowery type."
