Comments for NELLIE:

An (in)famous Australian coloratura soprano of the early 20th century, Nellie Melba (born Helen Porter Mitchell), carried this name. Melba was not a stellar actress and her personality was the image of the stereotypical demanding opera singer, but her beautiful voice made up for it.
