Comments for MELUSINE:

According to a (fictitous) book I once read by this title, Melusine was a descendant of the snake that tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden. She was said to have the ability to change into a snake during the night time.

Maybe this is related to Millicent?

Mélusine is the contraction of "mère Lusigne" ("mother Lusigne"). Lusigne comes from Lusignan, the name of an aritocratic family from Poitou (where the legend comes from).

I read that Melusine is derived from the Middle Breton mel (honey) so it means 'Honeyed One'. The story of Melusine is a Breton fairy tale, so that would make sense. It would also mean that Melusine is related to the name Melissa (honey bee in Greek).

Melusine von der Schulenburg (1667-1743) was the German mistress of King George I of Great Britain. They had a daughter together, also named Melusina (1693-1778).

Very strange. It's kind of like naming your daughter 'mermaid' or 'fairy'.

I think this name is very strange and unusual. In fact, I had no idea of its existence before stumbling upon it on this website. It's quite nice and it has a lovely meaning, though. :)
