Etymology: [F. merle, L. merula, merulus. Cf. Ousel.]
Merle is a pattern in a dog's coat, though is commonly incorrectly referred to as a colour. The merle gene creates mottled patches of color in a solid or piebald coat, blue or odd-colored eyes, and can affect skin pigment as well. Health issues are more typical and more severe when two merles are bred together, so it is recommended that a merle be bred to a dog with a solid coat color only.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
mėrl, n. the blackbird. [Fr.,—L. merula.]
