The Meaning of the Name: Melissa
"Honey Bee"

The name Melissa is derived from Greek mythology.

Melissa was a nymph that cared for Zeus an infant.

Zeus was hidden from his father, the king of the Gods.

Melissa plundered bee hives in order to feed honey to Zeus, who developed a permanent sweet tooth.

Melissa's role in protecting Zeus was discovered and she was turned into a low species of insect.

Zeus later took pity on her and turned her into a Honey Bee, which is involved with making honey.
