Meaning:sweet, sweetened with honey
Pay homage to one of the world's best-loved sitcoms by naming baby girl after one of its writers and executive producers, Mindy Kaling. It might not be one of the words you'd immediately think of when you think of Mindy's character, Kelly, but this name comes from the Greek word mellitus, which means "sweet" or "sweetened with honey". This delightful Latin name was originally a nickname for Melinda before it became a name in its own right. With a name like Mindy, you can encourage your mini-me to embrace the meaning and treat people with kindness and generosity.
