This is my name and everyone calls me melanie, Melania, melanoma, melissa, melinda, melody, anything BUT melina... and forget them trying to spell it! Haha, but I've always loved my name. My middle name is Kalyn, which is fitting because I was born in water. Didnt cry either, actually :) I say definately name a girl this, I've never disliked my name and I get nothing but compliments.

Being a fan of Melina Marchetta's books, the author is my first association when I think of this name. It's a more unusual but still familiar, gentle-sounding name that just rolls off your tongue, it's (pun? :b) mellifluous and quite lovely.

Delectably beautiful. There's only one drawback - if it is a drawback - melena is the name of a medical condition.
