The girl's name Mercedes is of Spanish origin, and its meaning is "mercies". It is taken from the title of the Virgin Mary, MarÃa de las Mercedes, meaning "Mary of Mercies; Our Lady of Ransom".
Latin 'mercedes' originally meant 'wages' or 'ransom'.
In Christian theology, Christ's sacrifice is regarded as a 'ransom for the sins of mankind', hence an 'act of ransom' was seen as identical with an 'act of mercy'.
Name is derived from the Spanish merced, which means “mercy”.
a Spanish singer-songwriter.Her interest in music started when she was a girl. She studied Advertising and Public Relations in Segovia, where she also worked as a waitress. She left her university career to be a contestant in Operación Triunfo 2002, her springboard to fame. Her musical style can be defined as the classical Spanish canción de autor or singer-songwriter, but it shows influences of Frank Sinatra, K's Choice and Las Planetas.Vega did reasonably well in Operacion Triunfo, but was not one of the finalists. At the end of the series, each contestant not in the final was asked to release their own original 'single'. This was a smart move by the programme makers, as it introduced a further element of competition: contestants who sold more than 200,000 copies of their single won a recording contract for a debut album. Vega's single was "Quiero Ser Tú" (I want to be you)
