- Comments and insights on the name Melody: | Edit
My name is Melody! :) I have only ever met one other person named Melody in real life, so I see my name as pretty unique. Be aware, lots of people call me “Melanie” on accident, and guys often use my name as a pick up line... LOL (example: “Sing me a song”). However, I do also get lots of compliments on my name! Many people tell me it is very pretty.
About myself: I am a shy person who is often considered very nice, although sometimes I am judged or misunderstood (apparently I don’t look nice, but most people who talk to me realize that’s not the case). I love to sing, I am very whimsical and I love to dress in a quirky way! :) I care a lot about humanity and I want to help the world in a big way (I plan to work with foster children as a career). I also love animals! :)
I feel very blessed to have the name Melody. I love how fun and happy it sounds. I wouldn’t change it for the world! <3
- Personal experiences with the name Melody: | Edit
Melody is a beautiful name and usually if you come across a Melody they will brighten your day. They love people and life.
Well, I once worked with a girl named Melody, and she definitely DID NOT brighten my day! If I or other workers were out of the room, she would screw up their work to make it look like she was the only one there who did the work right. The big bosses finally got wise to her and she got fired, hip-hip-hurray
I also knew a girl named Melody whom I didn't like, she was a mean, tough broad
My Aunts Name is Melody and My Dad says that she used to be quite evil and she'd use her name to pretend she was incredibly sweet. She's actually only 2 years older than my oldest sister (so I see her a lot, they're very close), and My Sister tells me that she was 'never like that!' but then again, I'm sure there's a lot of covering for each other going on there... Aunt Mel's awesome though!
