Comments for the name Demelza

Comments for DEMELZA:

In the "Poldark" books Demelza's told her name means "thy sweetness" (from someone who's attempting to seduce her >_>). I believe it's supposed to be Cornish.

Given the Greek origin of "mel" in reference to "honey", I think it's a reasonable assumption. I certainly don't know where this "fort" placename thing came from.
