This is a beautiful twist on Melissa, although Melissa isn’t a bad name itself.

I love how much history Melantha has. It sounds much more interesting then Melanie, plus, how often do you meet girls and women named Melantha?

Sounds like a body part, but the scientific term, or a disease.

It could also come from the Greek μελι (meli) which means honey. Then it could mean "honey flower." I love -antha names, especially this one.

I think Melantha is smooth and beautiful. My mother, on the other hand, is convinced that it sounds like the name of a body part.

The name is not English, it is Greek, very ancient. It consists of 'mel', meaning 'dark', and 'antha', meaning 'flower': thus Melantha means 'Dark Flower'. This has two references: either to a girl with dark hair and eyes, OR to a girl with a dark side to her personality.

Melantha means dark flower from the Greek words melaina (dark) and anthos (flower). Very pretty name.

"Melantha" might be a variant of the Greek name "Melantho" (accent on the "a") which appears in the epic poem "The Odyssey," and its masculine form, "Melanthios," which also appears here.
