Melvin is a ♂ male name.
Melvin is a derivation of the Old High German name Malwin. But the name also derived from an old Scottish surname, which comes from the French place name Malleville.
Melvin means “friend of justice” (from Germanic “mahal” = place of jurisdiction + “wini” = friend) and “bad town” (from French “mal” = bad + “ville” = town).
