Was just reading the news and came across the name Melody (Obama's domestic policy advisor is called Melody).

Is it ridiculous/poncy? I sort of love it....

If you love it, use it...I don't really go for it personally but then I know one in her 30s and wouldn't describe her as 'melodic' smile

There is that. If the poor child had a voice like a foghorn, the irony would be rather cruel.

DP has just pointed out that it sounds like someone saying "Melanie" with a bad cold, which has rather taken the shine off it for me!

Its okay, but I think Elodie, which has the same sounds is nicer.

Isn't it the name of a mermaid in 'Ariel' or something? This puts me off. As PP says makes me think of Elodie which is better and more of a 'name' IMO.

Dislike 'Mel' names, so wouldn't use personally.

I quite like it, but also prefer Elodie

It's a bit too saccharine or something. I don't dislike it exactly.

Prefer Melanie tbh.
