Other Origin(s):British
Meaning:All sweetness
Pamala is a girl’s name of Greek and English origin. A variant of Pamela, it was invented in the 16th century by English poet Sir Philip Sidney. He used the name for a character in his epic prose work The Countess of Pembroke’s Arcadia. The name is thought to come from the Greek words pan, meaning “all,” and meli, meaning “sweetness,” forming the meaning “all sweetness.” A fitting name for the little one who’s sure to be sweet as honey! Pamela is often shortened to Pam or Pammy, and was very popular in both the US and Britain from the 1930s to the 1950s. Pamala is a rarer variant, but offers the same pretty sound and retro feel as the original.
