If you anticipate baby will be as sweet as can be, consider Mellisa, a feminine name of Greek origin that means "honey" or "bee." An alternative spelling to the more common Melissa, Mellisa is a name that conjures images of a pleasant, happy child with a zest for life and a deep connection to nature. It repeatedly appears in Greek myths as the name of the Cretan daughter of King Melisseus and as the nymph who fed young Zeus honey. Famous namesakes, such as American actress Melissa McBride and singer-songwriter Melissa VanFleet, breathe modern life into this traditional name.
