It is of Greek origin, and the meaning of Melanie is "black, dark" That is why she acts like she is some black chick from the ghetto with a ghetto ass and can dance like a black chick when really she is a skinny white virgin. Melanie can be great friends but they are usually an attention seeking whore, she'll go out of her way to complain of fake illnesses. She'll even make up her own diseases to become the center of attention, then she'll pretend like she doesn't want the attention. She thinks her life is horrible, although she's spoiled and her parents give her everything she wants when she wants it. She'll lead ugly guys on to make it seem like guys actually want her, when really they just want a one night stand. With the lights off obviously because Melanie tends to be ugly. Warning, this chick is a crazy bitch. She will tell you that she is ugly and fat when really she's a pretty and skinny female who just made herself look ugly with her stupid ass attention seeking ways. Melanie can be usually found sitting on guys laps or running around screaming to catch guys attention.

Anna: She's such a skank...
