Melaina ("The Black One") is the under-earth or chthonic aspect of the Greek Great Goddess, said to bring nightmares. Different goddesses are called by Her name.
As a girl's name it is a variant of Melanie (Greek), and the meaning of Melaina is "black, dark".
In Greek mythology, Melaina was a Corycian nymph, or member of the prophetic Thriae, of the springs of Delphi in Phocis, who was loved by Apollo and bore him Delphos.
