Etymology

  • The name "Nerissa" was created by Shakespeare for a character in his play The Merchant of Venice (1596). He possibly took it from Greek Νηρεις (Nereis) meaning "nymph, sea sprite", ultimately derived from the name of the Greek sea god Nereus, who supposedly fathered them.
  • The word "brody" is slang for intentionally spinning in circles and sliding in an automobile.
