I quite like it

Forgetfulmog Sat 06-Jul-13 09:27:44

Love it! Milly or Millie for short?

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Sat 06-Jul-13 09:43:23

BeanoNoir Sat 06-Jul-13 09:45:27

I like it. My grandmother's name.

Blanketsandpillows Sat 06-Jul-13 11:23:02

I like it

ZZZenagain Sat 06-Jul-13 11:26:13

don't like it at all

squoosh Sat 06-Jul-13 11:42:24

Don't like it.

I personally don't like it. Very harsh sounding name.

Oh god no - Milly is nice but Millicent is awful, sorry. If you like Milly why not go for Emily or Romily?

Millicent Margaret Amanda was Milly Molly Mandy's full name.

Like it but not brave enough to use it. smilesmilesmile

Not quite the same name but reminds me of the baddie in sleeping beauty!
Ugly name IMO

Millie is nice

Lovely lovely name, but don't like it being shortened to Millie or Milly. But the advantage of a long name is, that the child can choose what to shorten it to (if at all) herself.

It's ok. On trend with the "granny chic" thing that's going on atm. Millicent is barbie's middle name btw!

Mouse! For a child, no way it's awful.

TidyDancer Sat 06-Jul-13 12:49:00

I'm really sorry, but I think it's horrible. sad

It is with Ethel for me. They might be well in with the old lady chic trend of late, but just no.

I think it is ok, hard to imagine a child going by a full name but Milly/Millie is fine.

Reminds me of two characters-

Millicent Bulstrode - the big hulking Slytherin girl in HP2
Malificent - the wicked witch in Sleeping Beauty

WidowWadman Sat 06-Jul-13 13:08:03

There of course is also Millicent Fawcett, the suffragist

Exactly as Mortified said - Millicent Bulstrode, she of the cat hair poly juice potion.

Millie = lovely
Millicent = don't do it!

Horrible. Reminds me of the evil queen in Sleeping beauty, Malificent.

Elquota Sat 06-Jul-13 17:17:00

Lovely name. Millie is nice too as nickname, rather than stand-alone.

miffybun73 Sat 06-Jul-13 17:18:04

Loveit, but not keen on Millie.

MoonHare Sat 06-Jul-13 18:07:26

Bit prim sounding. She'd get Milly (the opposite of prim sounding), would you mind?

Meredith?
