I used to hate my name Melanie, but is has grown on me and it is not as common as a lot of other names. My mom was going to name me Melody because of her love for music but after I was born my dad decided he liked Melanie better because the name means dark or black and I was born at night. My middle name Barbra was my great grandma's middle name and my mom's first name. It means stranger. My maiden name is dutch and means happy and my married name is Patience...they both fit well. So I tell people, I am a dark stranger that is happy and patient...and no matter how well you know me, you really don't know me well.
