Thoughts on Melva for a girl

It's a family name and we are having a hard time agreeing on names.

Re: Thoughts on Melva for a girl

  • I've never heard of it and I'm not crazy about it. But if it's a family name and you both like it go for it! :)

    It isn't the prettiest sounding name to be honest. Maybe for a mn.

    I thought of that too, except the name was Mulva and the joke was that it rhymed with a female body part.

    I'm not sure how I feel about Melva. It's different and that could be good or bad. It doesn't sound all that feminine to me because of reminds me of Melvin.

  • It seems a little heavy .....is Melva someone that you were very lose too? Does she have a middle name?
  • I just noticed that you have a little one named Ella ..........Ella and Melva sound too close IMO.

    Thought immediately of the Seinfeld episode. Jerry is dating a girl whose name rhymes with a part of the female anatomy. He can't remember her name at one point, so he says "Mulva?" It turns out her name is actually Delores.

    So yeah...maybe middle name it?

    I'm with PP. Middle name it and see if you can maybe find another family name or something for the first name.
  • Yeah, maybe a middle name... Not a fan of it.

  • I'm not a fan. I just don't think it sounds very pretty.
  • What about something with similar sounds?
    Melanie?
    Mallory?
    Viola?

    Mulva. 

    That is all. 

    If you don't get that reference, 1. shame on you and 2. google it.

    I said the same thing. Mulva. 

    But again, it's just nms but it's a real name and not offensive or stupid so why not, op, if you like it?
  • Melva is NMS.

    All I can think is that kids are cruel and Melva the Martian would be something she might be teased with.

  • Mulva.

    Also, yuck.
  • edited August 2015
    Exactly what I was going to say about the Seinfeld episode! A lot of people are going to have that association I think. And it sounds a lot like Mulva....which was the joke because Mulva is such a ridiculous sounding name.

  • It sort of sounds like a lunch lady name..........

  • Not a pretty sounding name.
