Comments for MELINA:

Melina Mercouri, a Greek filmstar, goddess and legend is one of my idols. She achieved so much and fought bravely for her rights as a Greek. I also find her name very beautiful. She gives honour to the name, I think.

I've been told that it means 'canary-yellow colored', but 'honey' is a more accurate translation.

My name! It seems like there wouldn't be many nicknames for it, but you'd be surprised. I, for instance, am called Lina, Mina, Mo, and Melenard.

Melina is a very beautiful name for a girl. Not a fad name either which is nice.

This is a very pretty name and a nice alternative to the overused Melissa. Mel and Lina and be used as nicknames.

This name appeared on the top 1000 list in the 1980's and is still on it, just not too popular.

Gorgeous name, very elegant.

This is almost a perfect name (and I'm very hard to please - when I say almost perfect, it means perfect). It's soft and feminine, so beautiful and makes me think a pretty, happy girl or woman. I think this name fits both little girls and old women. So wonderful name. If I ever have daughters, I'd probably name them Melina and Leah.

I think of Melina as too close to Melinda even though they're completely different. I don't like it though because, to me, it just doesn't role off the tongue nicely.

It has a sultry sound to me--flavorful and attractive without being brash or extravagant.

Melina is my name. I don't really like it, but I can bear it. It's a unique name. I've only met one person with the same name, but her's is in different spelling. (Mine is Melina, her's was Mileena.) My parents named me after a Hispanic friend of theirs. They didn't know what it meant, but I read elsewhere that it meant honey.

I love this name, more than I love Melinda. It's just so elegant, and not over the top. I might name my daughter it, if I ever have one.

I don't see how anyone could name their child Melina. It sounds exactly the same as (and is just one letter away from) "melena" which is the medical term for black, tarry, foul-smelling feces.

Melina is derived from the diminuative of Carmela being Carmelina and to which the prefix maybe eventually removed to make Melina.

I think it's a great name. It's sophisticated and mature without being cold. And it seems to capture all sort of elements to a person's personality, from fun to serious to intelligent to sexy to angry to girly.

I work as a nurse, and the image I get when I hear 'Melina' is the medical definition of the same (differently spelt) name:
Melena/Melaena
The passage of black, tarry stools composed largely of blood that has been acted on by gastric juices, indicative of bleeding in the upper digestive tract.
