From the tales I read as a child Mélusine is a fairy who is usually benevolent to the people she encounters.

Lovely ethereal name. Definitely gives off the fairytale kind of vibe, but I can see it work in modern day due to its similarities to other mainstream names. Would love to see Melusine be used in real life!

Very interesting. I prefer Melusina, for Melusine seems a bit too masculine for me.

Sorceress Says:


Although people don't exactly know what Melusine means, I believe it might be Middle Breton version of Millicent, but that's not very likely.

I do love Melusine, it's one of my two favorites names.
