Melanie is derived from the Greek word melas, which means “black,” and refers to the Greek goddess who waited all winter for spring to arrive.
After the Conquest of 1066, the Norman-French brought the name Melanie to England. Mélanie is the French equivalent of Melania, which are both derived from the Greek “melaina” , a descriptive adjective that means dark.
As with so many other venerated early saints, the French quickly bestowed the name Mélanie.
The English adopted the name from the French, despite the fact that it had become uncommon by the late Middle Ages.
Melanie awoke in the late 1930s as a result of Margaret Mitchell’s character Melanie Wilkes in her novel “Gone with the Wind” (1936) and the successful film adaptation that followed (1939).
