The name Pamela is derived from Greek and thus, it signifies "all sweetness", which refers to a person as sweet as honey. The name is emblematic of qualities such as gentleness, kindness, and charm, reflecting a sweet-natured and caring personality.
The name Pamela was coined by eminent English Elizabethan poet Sir Philip Sidney for a character in his pastoral epic "Arcadia", which he wrote in the late 16th century. The name was created from Greek elements 'pan', meaning "all" and 'meli', meaning "honey". It was popularized in the 18th century by Pamela; or, Virtue Rewarded, a novel written by Samuel Richardson. Thereafter, Pamela became a commonly used name in English speaking countries.
