Melany is a feminine name of Greek origin. A creative variation of Melanie, Melany shares its root in the Greek words melania, meaning "blackness," and melas, meaning "dark." Far more than skin-deep leanings, Melany encourages a character of rich depths, unwavering and resolute in their beliefs. In its original spelling, the name is greatly bound to the figure Melania the Younger, a renowned early medieval saint. Melania's acclaim stems from her renouncement of all material wealth and comforts in the pursuit of a life of Christian asceticism. In her devotion, she donated charitably and dedicated her life to leading others on a path of chastity. Today, Melany is a symbol of steadfastness rooted deep, impervious to the fleeting fancy of surface desire.
