The meaning of this name is a little bit uncertain. It could have been derived from Greek μελέτη (melete) "care, attention", but it could also have been derived from Greek μελέτα (meleta) "resolution, diligence". Especially the latter is probably related to Greek μελέτημα (meletema) "practice, exercise", which would then practically make this name a masculine form of Melete.
