Getting to Mel
Any ideas on ways to get to the nickname Mel? Ordinary to Extrodinarily unique names are welcome - looking for a list of names. I have considered Melina and Melody, but neither seem 100% right. I love Melinda - but is it too much of a mama name? No to Melissa and Amelia. Any other ideas?
Melrose? It sounds quite older but still has a cuteness to it
Here are some more really good options:
My favorites are Melantha and Philomela, both Greek. Philomela is a mythology name of a princess who was turned into a nigthingale and means lover of songs. How beautiful! Gives you lots of nn options, too, inlcluding Phia, Pippa, Millie, and of course Mel.
I love Melodica and Melodia especially
Demelza is my favourite way to get Mel :)
I once knew of a family who had a daughter named Emmeline nn Mel. I like Emma/Emmy much more personally, but I thought it was an inventive (and cool!) way to get to the nn. And the full name is just lovely.
