Melitta Schenk Gräfin von Stauffenberg was an aviator who served as a test pilot in the Luftwaffe before and during World War II. She was the second German woman to be awarded the honorary title of Flugkapitän and also flew over 2,500 test flights in dive bombers, the second most of any Luftwaffe test pilot. Countess von Stauffenberg died after being shot down by an Allied fighter plane on 8 April 1945.
I would name a daughter this.
It's okay.
Also used in Hungary. Pronounced: ME-lit-taw.
It's not a person, but there is a coffee/coffee filter company called Melitta. I immediately think of coffee filters when I hear this name, as this is the first place I heard it or saw it used. I don't know, the company may have been named for someone.
Hmm. You know, I actually really like this name. I wouldn't give it to my child or anything, but I like it.
The German pronunciation is me-LI-tah. [noted -ed]
