The first element of this name is derived from the Greek noun μελησμός (melesmos) meaning "care, diligence", which is ultimately derived from the Greek verb μέλω (melo) meaning "to be an object of care or interest" as well as "to care for, to be interested in".The second element is derived from the Greek noun ‘ιππος (hippos) meaning "horse". As a result, the meaning of this name is basically "one who cares for horses".Lastly, you might want to compare this name with the names Melasippos and Meleusippos, as they tend to get confused with each other due to their striking similarities.
