Meaning:City of the king; My king is light
Melkior is a boy’s name of Polish origin. Meaning “city of the king” or “my king is light,” it comes from the Hebrew name Melchior and possibly traces back to the biblical story of Christ’s birth. According to the Excerpta latina barbari, Melchior is the oldest of the three Magi who gift the infant Jesus with gold, frankincense, and myrrh. While Melkior takes a slight turn from the original, it’s still a solid name for those who love the holiday season but want something a little different from traditional Christmas titles.
