I think this is quite feminine; with Mel as a nickname, and the -ina ending that so many names have!

"Melvin doesn't deserve a feminine form." Yeah that pretty much sums it up and my sister is so lucky my parents didn't know the name existed when they named her (she was named after great grandfather who was running out of time to see the family line continue with a male.)
