- "I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I've never been able to believe it. I don't believe a rose would be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk-cabbage."
- This article is about Jerry and Nan Meredith's daughter. You may be looking for her aunt, Diana Blythe, or Anne Shirley's best friend, Diana Barry.
Diana was most likely born in the early 1920s to Nan and Jerry Meredith. She spent her childhood years playing in Glen St. Mary with her relatives and the children from the neighbourhood, namely Jem, Walter and Anne Blythe, Rilla Ford, Susette King, Jack Bell, Dick, Letty and Jerry Thornton.
Di and her relatives hated Dick as he was mean both to people and animals and on one occasion she slapped his face. She accidentaly broke Aunt Marian's jug and gave her a little brown one with creamy lining in place of the old one. Jerry Thornton liked her laugh and remembered it years later when he met Susette in Glen St. Mary. He also admitted that he had been on the brink of proposing to Di once but wasn't really sure if he wanted to do that.
It is implied by Jerry that by the late 1940s, most of their contemporaries had gotten married, which possibly included Diana.
Diana is a female given name of Latin origin and means divine.
- Diana's mother Nan named her after her twin sister, Diana Blythe.
- Diana shared name with best friend of her grandmother, Diana Barry.
