ORIGIN AND HISTORY

The name Melody is Greek in origin, and it means, predictably, "music, song." Though it was uncommon, it first began to be used in the thirteenth century.[1]

According to Merriam-Webster, the word "melody" comes from the following origins: Middle English melodie, from Anglo-French, from Late Latin melodia, from Greek melōidia chanting, music, from melos limb, musical phrase, song. The exact definition is "1: a sweet or agreeable succession or arrangement of sounds. 2: a rhythmic succession of single tones organized as an aesthetic whole."[1]

POPULARITY

Melody first appeared on the top 1000 chart in the United States in 1942, making a running leap onto the chart at number 524. Popularity quickly rose to as high as 153 in 1960, then dropped as low as 436 in 1999. It has picked up again in the 21st century, and in 2007, Melody ranked as the 295th most popular girl's name in the United States.[1]
