Nickname short for the name, “Carmela.” She’s very beautiful, talented, smart, and most importantly, very kind. She spends a lot of her time reading and spending time with the people she cares about. She deserves the best

Mela or melo is a word used to describe who is acting dumb or foolish. Some Latinos use the word Lela instead of mela. Either one is correct. Often times, the word you use depends on where you or your family is from.
