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.

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!
