Merlina is the feminine name for Merlin. Its origin is delta and its use in the Spanish language has been extended since the famous series of “Los locos Adams” where the name of the girl in Latin American countries was Merlina, alluding to the magic and sorcery that the same family practiced in a fun way and with a macabre touch and madness at the same time.

Likewise, the stories of the wizard Merlin date from the 1900s onwards and with the inclusion of the feminine gender in the different activities of the human being, this masculine noun was transformed into a feminine one by making the variation from Merlin to Merlina.

Although a series or movie of a sorceress with this name had not been seen or mentioned, this name was generalized to be used in the famous series that nowadays had its turn in history with the release of a version directed by Tim Burton.

They used it because this day of the week was framed in one of her mother’s favorite songs, this fact is clearly explained in the new version of the movie that was released in 2022.
