It sounds like the name of a fantasy character. Like King Melchior or something. Or Melchior the wizard.

This name was common among the Schwenkfelder religious community which moved from Silesia to America in the early 18th century. It appears approximately a dozen times in the passenger logs of the ships which brought the immigrants over, and among the first few generations born in America as well.

A famous (sort of) bearer of this name is the character of Melchior Gabor from the play/musical, Spring Awakening. Originally written by Frank Wedekind, but has more recently been adapted into a musical by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater.

This upon me can be argued whether the second part of the name stands namely for 'city'. What about the first part 'melchi' - îìëé then it makes mainly no doubt, for such a root M-L-K(H) is common for the majority of Semitic languages. Still the thing is that the second can be also interpreted as àåø - 'or' which literally means light. Hebrew word for 'king' is 'melech'/'melekh' - îìê, and 'my king' is formed by adding '-i' ending to the main word (melech). Thus, 'melchi'/'melkhi' + 'or' = melchior = îìëéàåø = 'my king is light'.

The Swedish form is Melker, and this name is rather popular in Sweden now.
