This name sounds beautiful and delicate, while at the same time, royal and sturdy.

Melisende is such a beautiful, enchanting, ethereal name! I absoloutely love it. It has such a regal, medieval feel (which makes sense as there was a medieval queen with the same name :P) I like it much more than Millicent (probably because I knew a horrible girl in highschool named Millicent). I also love it's obscure variant, of which it has many, Melisantia (mel-is-AHN-tee-a).
