Melody can also be pronounced Mel-oh-dee. I've seen it spelled Meladee before. I don't think it looks very good. Melodie doesn't look too bad... I'd just stick with the spelling Melody.

It's a beautiful name. It's talented and glamorous. I'll call my daughter Melody, but I'm hyphenating it with Anne. It's a very pretty combination, Melody-Anne.

Much prettier than Harmony. I like the Spelling Melodee or Melodie.

My friend's name is Melody. I've always thought it was a pretty name. It is also the middle name of Johnny Depp's daughter.
websurfer  3/31/2006
My mum named me 'Melody' because she hopes that I will grow up to be musically inclined. It's quite a unique name - you don't find many people with this name. But overall, it's a pretty name for a girl. =)

I love this name. It is unique and not overly used. It sounds very pretty.

Melody appeared on the top 1000 list in the 1940's and its most popular year was the 1960's.

I like it spelled MELODY. I think it's a very pretty name. I think it's better than Melanie.

Melody is a singer's name off of the Pussy Cat Dolls and she sings very well. The other girls' names in this AWESOME AND COOL-O-MUNGUS group are Ashley, Nicole, Carmit, Jessica, and Kimberly. I love their group and their songs! I have a friend named Taila (TY-LA) AND HER mother's name is Melody. Very nice name! :0
Taydbug112  11/9/2006
A very beautiful name.
lily2040  11/18/2006
My favourite name of all time! I've loved this name for years, and I think it sounds beautiful when linked with a name like "Anne".
Sophie-Lou  12/17/2006
Melody was my fav name when I was about 13. I still adore it and could see myself using it but probably as a middle name (I have too many favourites :p)

This is the middle name of Johnny Depp's daughter, Lily Rose. It's also the name of Ariel's daughter in the direct-to-video sequel to "The Little Mermaid."

Very nice name. Not too common. I also like the nickname "Mel".
CharlieRob  5/9/2007
I love this name! Beautiful and pure. When you say it, it just sounds like a song. Love it.
bookdiva  8/28/2007
I know someone whose middle name is this, but spelled Melodi. I think all variations are pretty!
pennycarroll  9/25/2007
Lovely name. It sounds elegant.
aquaspirit96  10/2/2007
Melody is a really nice name. It's a sweet name for a cute little girl but it can transform easily and ages well to fit an interesting woman.
scholasticastewart  12/29/2007
It sounds quite tacky and sappy, and it isn't really one of those names that protects you from job discrimination. It would be quite funny if Melody turned out to be tone-deaf and bad at both singing and playing instruments.
slight night shiver  4/30/2008
My first name is Melody and my middle name is Rose. I happen to be one of the non-musical Melodys that you spoke about in your post. I am perfectly happy with my name and I do not feel that I miss any career opportunities based on my name. In fact, I enjoy having a "unique" name, and urge others to name their children names that create a character instead of merely hinting at an identity.

Jonquil  9/1/2008
I like the spelling Melody. Melodi and Melodie are kinda nice too. Could be paired with Melanie for twins or something. Although some may look at matching names to be silly.
eschantie  12/2/2008
It's pretty, but I don't think I will name my kid it.

This name is very pretty and has a very nice ring to it. It's also very unique.
-Julia-  7/24/2009
Love this name, sounds beautiful, kinda hippie-ish but in a good way. My friend wants to name her daughter Melody Rose which, I think, is a gorgeous combination.
...Skye...  8/22/2009
My name is Melody Rose, I have always liked this combination of names because it is unique without being bizarre.

My name is Melody and I've always gotten a lot of compliments on it. Though beware, some people (usually idiots) will mispronounce your kid's name, if you desire to name them this, and call them "Melanie", which is a most atrocious name.
slyboots  11/15/2009
Although I love music so much Melody doesn't appeal to me. For some reason it comes off to me as tacky.
no offense or anything. It does sound too much like Melanie too.
italiannames  12/21/2009
I have to say, I think Melody is a very pretty name. Slightly 1980s, in my mind, but that's not an issue for me. But even though the name Melanie has received some "hate", I guess, in the above posts, I don't have a problem with Melanie, either. (Though I must say, I'm not a fan of Melissa.) Maybe that's why I prefer the spelling Melodie--it looks less like a "word", if you know what I mean.
― Anonymous User  2/3/2010
I like Melody and it is far more classier than the name Melanie (which I really dislike). Melody is much more elegant.
starz26  4/7/2010
My name is Melody Angela and I love it. I love the meanings combined. I used to not like it much when I was little but after I realized it wasn't very common I loved it. It makes me feel unique. I don't particularly like it with "Ann" because Ann is a very common second name but I love my name with "Rose".
MellParr  8/14/2010
I really like the name Melody. I think the different spellings (as talked about in the posts above) are a little tacky. This name is good in its original spelling (hopefully it IS the original spelling). Oh, and I LOVE that whole double-name thing! It’s so awesome!
Myth Writer Dreamer  9/7/2010
In high school I knew a girl named Melodie. She had a feisty, tom-boyish personality. I thought it was a fun contrast to her very feminine, sort-of-sugary name.
― Anonymous User  11/14/2010
I've met many Melody's, so this name seems very overused to me. It seems more like a word than a name. Also, how horrible would it be to name your daughters Melody and Harmony?
― Anonymous User  12/23/2010
This is a beautiful name. However, I do think I prefer Melodie. I'm surprised it isn't in the database.

This is a very pretty name. I have an aunt named Melodie- pronounced MEL-ah-dee- and her middle name is Anne; Melodie Anne sounds great together. We call her Mel for the most part though.
Poco  10/24/2012
I am cursed with this name and it is absolutely disgusting. It's extremely tacky, obnoxious, and pretentious. The people saying it's so 'adorable' and 'sweet' and 'perfect' should try going through life with a name like 'Melody Grace' (my last name is a virtue, as well) when you're not particularly musically inclined and you're hopelessly clumsy. I won't even go into the variety of hateful nicknames I got throughout elementary, middle, and high school. The teasing still hasn't stopped and I'm nearly an adult.

THANK YOU to the people insulting it by calling it sappy, childish, horrid, etc. Hopefully we are saving potential 'Melody's' from getting stuck with this atrocity. It's a TERRIBLE, disgusting, horrendous choice for a girl and I've made it my mission to warn parents against using it. I still can't forgive my mother for plaguing me with it, although she couldn't care less. I have been tormented throughout my entire life because of it, not to mention NO ONE knows what I say when I first introduce myself. "Oh hi, Melanie!" "Hey there, Nellie!" or even "Nice to meet you, Emily!"

To the person above who doesn't like her name: I'm sorry you have had such a horrible experience with it. :( Seems like there are quite a few Melodys who commented who like their name, though, so I wouldn't discourage parents from using it. Personally, I love this name, though I may be biased since I do love music. I don't think it sounds pretentious at all and I prefer it to other musical names. How can a name sound pretentious anyway? It's just a name. I would use it but my husband isn't a fan probably due to some Melody's he knew. I also like Melody-Anne as someone suggested above.

Its a beautiful name. My best friend has this name and she's known as "Mel" which I think is a very pretty nickname. I don't see why so many people dislike it, it's a lot better then a common name such as Kate or Jessie.
Gio123  10/16/2013
My very best friend that I have known since kindergarten is named Melody, and her middle name is Bunny. I think that it is really pretty, and extremely elegant. Melody has A LOT of nicknames though. She is one of the only Melodys I know, could be the only one, actually!
silverstar  5/23/2014
My name is Melody. I love my name! I do love music and singing, although I am not gifted by any stretch haha. People do often initially call me Melanie. I also often am complimented on my name. Happy to be a Melody, happy to be me : )

emilydominko  9/13/2014
I love the name Melody and not because I'm musical in the slightest. I love the way it sounds and how easily it rolls off the tongue. I called my daughter Melody-Rose and I think it's such a beautiful name. It suits her very well. People will always find something to have a dig about whether it be your name, appearance or style which is why it's important to raise strong minded and well grounded little people, regardless of their name. Kudos to all the Melody's.
Snoozei  10/7/2014
I think the name either suits you or it doesn't. It can be very beautiful and feminine, and therefore might not be a name that is taken seriously in the work place. To Be Honest, since I started going by Mel on my resume I've gotten a lot more calls back from employers. By the way, I'm also a musician and a singer - I go by Melody on my CD covers.
econgirl85  11/19/2014
Melody is such an unbelievably BEAUTIFUL & lovely name. It's feminine and gorgeous. Xx.

I named my daughter Melody. She always tells me she loves her name and she's happy it's unique.

I work in an elementary school, and I have yet to meet another Melody in the 10 years I've been in education.

She is not musically inclined, and is even a little on the tom-boy side, and I think it's an interesting contrast to her personality.

Everyone that meets her always comments on her name in a positive way. She has many nicknames, Mel being the most common, and Melly being another one.

My name is Melody Kay and I have never had a negative comment about it. People do have a tendency to sing it at me. Kudos to them for trying to be melodic. My British neighbors used to call me Melodious. And a lot of people come up with interesting nicknames, but Mel is the most common. Whatever your name is it was a gift from your parents and was the first way they showed how much they loved you so embrace it. They found you and your name to be beautiful.

My name is Melody Renee, and I positively love my name. I think it's feminine and classy. I also have musical tendencies, so it's even better. :) I DO get called Melanie A LOT and I've come to strongly dislike that name. There are dumb nicknames for Melody, sadly, though usually I'm just Mel.
lovelife01  4/1/2016
I love my name. In my 50 years, I've only known two others with it. It has not impeded my career. When people call me Melanie, I always say I already have two knees. I often say it's Melody like music. I get Melodious at times. Only special people get to call me Mel. Don't name your kid Melody. I like the fact that there are so few of us.
Pipsqeak  8/6/2016
I love this name, it sound pretty and has a beautiful meaning. And as a nickname you could go for Mell or Melly, which I think is very cute nicknames.

#Warning-spoilers darling if you are a fan of Doctor Who, the critically acclaimed show in the UK. Melody Pond, daughter of Amy Pond and Rory Williams. She is the wife of the Doctor, and is a time traveler who for the most part is known for her nickname River Song. She's a strong and fierce character who's not afraid to fight. Melody Pond is an amazing namesake and is a reason why I want to name my daughter Melody. Naming your daughter Melody doesn't always have to be about loving music. It can also be about science and fandom.
555jazzy  9/23/2016
I love the name Melody. My favorite combinations are Melody Renee, Melody Anne and Melody Rose. It is very nice and overall is easy to spell. I don't like that people assume that when others want to use this name that means you're musical. Like if I use the name Jason, does that mean that I am a doctor? It's a name, that doesn't show the parent or person's interest. It's just very light and a multiple of girls can have this name, wither she's a tomboy who goes by Mel, a hipster, an artist, a lawyer and just a different variety of girls I can imagine having this name. Which is rare, so that's why I suggest this and personally most likely want to name my kid Melody, if it turns out I would have a girl in the very distant future.
QuinnBethany  10/2/2016
I LOVE this name so very much. I've always loved and will definitely consider using it if I have a baby girl some day. I've met one girl named Melody and she went by Mel but I've always thought the nickname Maddy/Mady/Maddie would work as well. I LOVE the name Maddie but I don't like Madison or Madeline and I don't want to use Maddie as a legal first name because that won't age well. So I think Melody is perfect. I love it SO much!
evyyxo  10/30/2016
I named my daughter Melody June. She loves her name. We often call her Mellie or Mellie-June. She is a gymnast and swimmer. Her teammates usually call her Mel. She is a kind, gentle person, but also a kick-butt athlete, so the versatility of the name is great.

My name is Melody. I've always "loved" my name. I was named after the song, "Melody of Love" by Al Martino. A late 50's/60's song. The song is so beautiful! My Momma would sing this song to me, even as an adult. We would talk on the phone and she'd sing "Melody Of Love" to me. We lived almost 2,000 miles apart. RIP, I MISS YOU MOMMA and thank you for naming me Melody. Oh and Thank You Al Martino! = )

When your name is Melody you get nick names like Mel, Mel Mel, Melo, Song, T-Bone, Harmony or they do not say your name at all. People say it is a beautiful name because it means song or the main part in music.

My name is Melody Ann and I love it. My mother, whose name is Marilyn, had a friend in Germany named Melody in the late 70's and she thought it was a beautiful name. I am usually called Mel by family and friends, MelMel by children, Aunt Mel by my niece and nephews, and Melly Mel by a couple of coworkers. I love music and I played the clarinet in junior high school. Melody is not a common name and I love that, besides my unique and quirky personality, I have an uncommon name. I, like many others, have been called Melanie, which ticks me off.
MelodyAnn  12/25/2017
My name is Melody and I honestly love my name. I always felt unique in school being the only Melody until I heard that other girls have the same name, but it's still special. My dad named me Melody because he loves music and is a DJ himself. My middle name is even more unique, it's Junarsy. It comes from my grandfather named Juan who sadly passed away the year I was born. Anyway, I believe that any child will be so special having the name Melody it's just not a common name, and the nickname Mel or Mellie are just so cute.

Just something to say, I hate it when people mix up my name with Melanie - I don't even bother correcting them anymore.
― Anonymous User  4/14/2018
I think Melody is beautiful, it rolls off the tongue so easily and sounds great with most middle names. I've been contemplating this name for a future daughter because of my grandfather, I always remember him singing, and he had a handsome voice. I figured Melody, since it literally means "song", would be a nice tribute to my grandpa. I really love the combinations Melody Anna and Melody Susannah.
