Meaning:music or song
Feel like singing for joy now that your baby girl is here? Name her Melody, which means “song.” It works even if she can’t carry a tune! A favorite of the feel-good, hippie-dippie 1960s, Melody joins other tuneful names like Harmony, Sonata and Lyric in making people smile when they hear it. It comes from the Greek “melodia” or “singing of songs” and has a soft and lovely sound to it, almost like you’re singing it. MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew” cohost Layla Kayleigh named her daughter Melody Rain in 2010.
