Sorry, it reminds me too much of the Peach Melba yoghurts served in my school's Milk Bar. Very nice name though - strikes me as Spanish!

Dame Nellie Melba was born Helen Porter Mitchell. I would probably class the name itself, popular in the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as an anagram of Mabel, which was also popular at that time.

I would love the name Melba if it weren't for Melba Toast. If I named my daughter Melba she would think I named her after the toast because I always have some in the house. That would be partially true because I did first hear of the name from toast. But it is still a beautiful name. Maybe I would name a character in a story Melba, but not my own daughter.
