I just remembered this name from French 101 last spring (it's a female name that was used in one of our workbooks). I started a topic about it in the Opinions lounge as well and got this response from Mrs. Claire:
"Mylène (mee-len) is indeed a French name. It could be a contraction of Marie-Hélène (see Marie & Helene)."
This is her best guess and about as much as I know.
I did an internet search as well and found this:http://www.zelo.com/firstnames/findresults.asp?name=MYLENE
, where it says that Mylene is Greek and means "dark one"... I have doubts about this though.
Any other info anybody can offer would be well appreciated. I think I may even go to the "add names" page and suggest it if I can get enough info. It's very pretty, I think."Chan eil tuil air nach tig traoghadh"Capt. Malcolm Reynolds - Half of writing history is hiding the truth.
