"Knowing many, loving none,
Bearing sorrow havin' fun,
But back home he'll always run
To sweet Melissa... mmm..."

Melissa by The Allman Brothers Band. A great song, and I love this name because of it.

First people I think of when I hear the name are all from the '70's-'80's classic show 'Little House on the Prairie': Melissa Sue Anderson as oldest daughter of Charles & Caroline Ingalls, Melissa Gilbert from as the middle daughter, Laura Ingalls (later Laura Ingalls Wilder), (later Mary Ingalls Kendall), and Melissa 'Missy' Francis, who played Cassandra for a relatively short time on the show. So many damn Melissas on that show! Although, I guess it was at the height of its popularity around then.

Melissa is the middle name of Lily Owens in "The Secret Life of Bees", by Sue Monk Kidd. I normally am not fond of the name Melissa, but I really like it as a middle name with Lily. I think Lily Melissa just works really well. But that's only my opinion. :)

This is my name but mine is spelt differently. This name is also the cover for a heavy metal band, and the "character" Melissa is a skull, who was once a sorceress... but that's the story for the band.

I'm surprised to see no one mentioned the famous "Melissa" virus which infected documents written in Microsoft word

The Melissa virus, also known as "Mailissa", "Simpsons", "Kwyjibo", or "Kwejeebo", [citation needed] is a mass-mailing macro virus. As it is not a standalone program, it is not a worm.[

Melissa is a character in The Histories by Herodotus. She was killed by her husband Periander, the tyrant king of Corinth. Periander later sent messengers to ask the Oracle of the dead about the location of a deposit that had been buried, but Melissa's ghost appeared and complained that she didn't have any clothes. Periander gathered all the Corinthian women in front of the temple of Hera, and then he forcefully stripped all of them of their clothes. He burned the clothes to give them to Melissa, and then Melissa told him where the deposit was buried. Many years later, the Corinthians told this story as an example of why democracy is better than despotism.
