Melaine is a girl's name with Greek origins meaning “black” or “dark-skinned” and is a variation of the name Melanie. It comes from the Greek words melania and melas, and has a lyrical, delicate sound that's sure to appeal to your little one. The name was first introduced into the English language during the Middle Ages by French settlers, who used the sophisticated Mélanie as a take on the Latin Melania. Melaine, also spelled as Melaena, appears in Greek mythology as a naiad from the springs of Delphoi, giving the name a fantastical spin that'll be a hit with any little dreamer.
