name meaning, variations & more

  • Thought to mean “all sweetness” or made from honey
  • Commonly abbreviated to Pam
  • Name created by Sir Philip Sidney (1554-1586), an English poet, courtier, scholar and soldier from the Elizabethan age. In his story, The Countess of Pembroke’s Arcadia, he introduced the name Pamela. From a book summary in 1867: “Basilius, the King of the country… kept his two daughters, Pamela and Philoclea, in strict confinement so that no one might take them from him.’There was, if at least such perfections may receive the word of more, more sweetness in Philoclea, but more majesty in Pamela.'”
