Other Origin(s):British
Meaning:Honey; all sweetness
Based on the vintage-chic name Pamela, Pamelia is a musical take on a title brought to life for literature. The name Pamela was created by the 16th-century poet Sir Philip Sidney for his epic prose, The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia, and later used by Samuel Richardson for his novel Pamela. Meaning “honey” and “all sweetness,” Sidney formed Pamela from the Ancient Greek phrase pán meli. Replace Pamela's -la ending with a vivacious -lia, and you've got Pamelia—a feminine appellation that passionately rolls off the tongue.
