NAME ROOT:
MèLI > MèLISSA
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
MèLI (μέλι) MèLISSA (μέλισσα)
MEANING:
This name comes from the Ancient Greek word “mèlissa (μέλισσα)”, meaning "honey bee", which in turn comes from “mèli (μέλι)”, meaning “honey”. In Ireland, it is sometimes used as a feminine form of the Gaelic male name Maoilíosa, which means "servant of Jesus." In Greek Mythology the name "Melissa" has a long history with roots reaching back to even before Ancient Greece. For this reason, in part, there are several versions of the story surrounding the mythological character Melissa, especially in how she came to care for the infant Zeus. This name is also a surname of Artemis as the goddess of the moon, in which capacity she alleviates the suffering of women in childbed.
