Meaning:Music, song
Melody is a girl’s name with Greek origins meaning “music” or “song.” This musical name was once a popular choice during the 1960s in the United States before sliding a bit to the wayside. However, in recent decades, Melody has made a comeback into the charts—excuse the pun! For music-orientated families, Melody is a fabulous choice for any baby girl. Or, if you want to use the actual Greek word, Melos is the way to go.
