Please, I would appreciate any help here.
I have family members with the name 'Melinis' which iam told has something to do with honey?
Now, in Italy there are TONS of Mellini'(s.) Spelt slightly differently
So, does this surname orginate from Greece? OR did it orginate from Italy and find its way to Greece?
Many thanks for any contributions or opinions

It could be either or. Hard to say.
It's possible that one of your ancestors came from Italy at some point.

Thank you Admin. I know there is a area in Cypress called Melinis. So who knows?!
Oddly, I have met a few Italians with Greek surnames. But I am correct in beliving in means 'honey'?
