There's a Thai guy in my class who goes by Mel. His actual name is Tananant, though. Go figure.

This name is a fun and short nickname for Melvin, Melissa, Melinda, Melanie, and Melody.

I never did like the sound of this nickname, but that heinous anti-semitic and misogynist dork Mel Gibson has really made me hate it.

I love this name for a girl, not so much for a boy. It's so simple, yet so full of personality! Great name. :)

It sounds boring as a legal name, and it makes me think of the hideous anti-Semite Mel Gibson.

Means "honey" (as in the gooey substance made by bees, not as in "dear") in Portuguese. A celebrity couple here named their daughter this about a year ago, and I don't know of anyone else who has done that.

It's really too bad if Mel Gibson ruins the name for someone because he's anti-Jewish. Keep in mind what they said about Mel BROOKS: "He's like the Barack Obama for short, funny Jews." It's a good name; just forget about Gibson.

Love this as a nickname for any Mel name - boys or girls, though Melvin is the only male one I can think of at the moment. Melvin, Melissa, Melodie/Melody, Melinda, Melina.

In the case of Mel Gibson, he was named after Saint Meol (which also anglicized Mel) meaning "bald" in Gaelic.
