Milinda is the Pali rendering of the Greek name Menandros, a Greek soldier in the army of Alexander the Great, who later made himself king of a large part of what is now eastern Afghanistan and northern Pakistan in the 2nd century BCE. Milinda eventually converted to Buddhism, perhaps due to the influence of a monk named Nagasena and later both he and the monk were used as the protagonists in a Buddhist book named the Milindapanha.
