Meaning of mersaydes “Means “mercies” (that is, the plural of mercy), from the Spanish title of the Virgin Mary, María de las Mercedes, meaning “Mary of Mercies”. It is ultimately from the Latin word merces meaning “wages, reward”, which in Vulgar Latin acquired the meaning “favour, pity” [1]. See All · Family Tree.”
