Maelen Name Meaning & Origin

Maelen

Pronunciation: n/a

Origin of the name May:

Originally used as a pet form of Mary and Margaret (pearl). More recently, however, it is usually associated with the name of the month, which is derived from the Latin Maius (the month of Maia, the Greek mythological goddess of increase). May is often bestowed as a middle name, or used as a name element in combination names such as Anna-Mae or May-Lynn. The name was borne by the popular actress Mae West (1892 - 1980). Her shapely bustline led to her name being used for an inflatable life preserver vest for use by RAF aviators downed at sea during World War II.

Comments and insights on the name Maelen: | Edit

I think this name might've been used before outside of my knowledge somewhere, but I came up with it when I was trying to make up a bunch of names and this one stuck. It sounds beautiful, fantastical, and kind. This name makes me think of a hidden meadow in a forest with bright, golden rays of sunlight shining down on it. Apparently it's a variation of May.
