    @slavebrackets - Meconium is the word for a baby's first poop. I think melena can be used to refer to a black tarry poop by anyone (not necessarily a baby).

    Yeah I've heard the melena thing before. It sucks, because Milena is a beautiful name!

    I've told my husband countless times that this is why we can't use the name Melina (mel-ee-na). However, Milena (mel-ay-na) was still on the table for quite sometime after. In the end, we ended up deciding that it was just too likely that Milena would be pronounced as Melina by most of the general public and that was an association we didn't want to think about. However, if she were to go my Millie or Mila (my favorite) most of the time, that wouldn't be as much of a concern, I think.

    Honestly, I had no idea that melena was a medical term for black tarry poop...and I doubt many others do as well.

    I've seen far worse names used.
