This name is actually of German origin. It means "Industrious".

A gorgeous traditional name, a much better choice than any of the million Sarah or Hannah names out there.

My daughter is called this and EVERYONE who meets her comments on how lovely her name is.

Can also be a variant of Milene. =)

I love this beautiful name.

Millicent is said to be Barbie's middle name!
lindamaree  3/10/2006
Yes, it is correct about the doll Barbie's middle name. Her full name is Barbie Millicent Roberts.

This was the name of the aunt in P.J Hogan's Peter Pan released in 2003. Aunt Millicent she was and now I am quite neutral about this name, half sounds sweet and youthful and half sounds old and nagging.

Millicent Bulstrode in the Harry Potter books is a harsh Slytherin.

I think Millicent is a very nice name. Never heard much of it's usage so it must be unique in some way.

Millicent is a name that makes me think of old ladies.
― Anonymous User  6/6/2006
Millicent reminds me of Maleficent, the evil fairy in "Sleeping Beauty". I don't know why.
― Anonymous User  7/23/2006
I love this name because of its strength, I love strong female names, however it reminds me of the name of that evil lady in Sleeping Beauty. It also reminds me of mean old aunts. However that doesn't put me off.

My middle name is Millicent and I rather like it. If you like the name but don't want your daughter tagged as 'Silly Milly' (mom's reason for vetoing it as a first name), consider it as a middle name.

I really don't like this name at all. I don't get why all you people think it is so awesome.
― Anonymous User  10/12/2006
Yes, it does remind me of the evil fairy person from 'Sleeping Beauty', which puts me off. I prefer Mildred personally.

Another one from Harry Potter is Millicent Bagnold, who preceeded Cornelius Fudge as Minister of Magic.

Fairly nice name but I can't stop thinking 'millipede' when I hear it.
― Anonymous User  5/9/2007
Pretty, but I read a book that ruined the name for me.
sqirrlie  5/18/2007
I love the sound of this and the way it looks. I think it's a beautiful strong name that would be wonderful for a child or a grown up. The nickname Millie puts me off though. I think I'd go with Mila if I had to pick one.

Millicent Fawcett is a famous bearer, she was the founder of the Suffragists (not suffragettes) that peacefully campaigned for Women's right to vote.
― Anonymous User  12/9/2007
Mmm. Millicent makes me think of luxury and sweetness. Something about the way the sounds fall makes me think of a fur coat tumbling onto the ground. Yes, seriously!

There is also something vaguely numerical about it, and it is quite a grand name, but luckily it has the nickname Millie (very popular right now in the UK), which will ensure that a little Millicent fits in!

A famous bearer was American politician and diplomat Millicent Fenwick (February 25, 1910 – September 16, 1992). She was a long-time Republican member of the US House of Representatives from New Jersey. She was outspoken in her positions in favor of civil rights and the women's movement.
AndrewJKD  4/13/2008
Very old-fashioned. Millie is an okay nickname, but the ending of this name isn't pretty at all.

Millicent Martin (b. 1934), red-headed British actress and singer, rose to fame in the 1960s on a hugely successful cult TV satire show that also starred a young (Sir) David Frost. She now lives in the USA and has appeared in episodes of "Frasier".

I love the sound of this name. It is so beautiful.

I don't like Millicent or Mildred. They are both outdated.

There's a book named Milicent's Gift. Kind of random.
Akito  4/15/2009
Millicent was the name of the evil witch in Disney's Sleeping Beauty.
emily  3/16/2010
Actually, you were wrong on two things: 1. Barbie's real name is Barbara Millicent Roberts, and, 2. The villain in Sleeping Beauty's name is Maleficent.
mariej2  3/19/2010
A perfect name. I'd fear for the nickname Millie however, which is awfully common.
vomiting  9/13/2010
This name just sounds very... "mean" to me. It could be because of the evil Maleficent in "Sleeping Beauty," but something about this name seems malevolent. I can't put my finger on it.
erb816  9/27/2010
A very timeless, graceful name. I love it. :)
― Anonymous User  10/1/2010
It reminds me of shiny things. It's cool!
Chrila96  12/12/2010
It sounds sexy in a dominatrix kind of way.
keepitreal  1/7/2011
It sounds demonic.

― Anonymous User  6/5/2011
I hate Millicent. It reminds me of mice and mean old women for some reason. Toss it in the recycling bin.
GibsonGirl  10/28/2011
On an episode of "The Brady Bunch" Melissa Sue Anderson (Mary on Little House on the Prairie), played a character named Millicent. I believe that she was a "love interest" for Bobby Brady.
Jamesina  12/22/2012
For some reason it reminds me of the word innocent. I still don't like this name though.
― Anonymous User  1/28/2013
The name Millicent is still in use, though rare. It was given to 71 baby girls born in the US in 2012.
Oohvintage  7/18/2013
I can see this name gaining popularity, especially with the renewed popularity of Millie as a nickname. Personally I think it looks and sounds too heavy and masculine for a little girl.

Millicent Rogers (Born: February 1, 1902, Died: January 1, 1953) was a socialite, fashion icon, and art collector.
― Anonymous User  10/25/2014
Don't like this name, as it makes me think of currency and is ugly.
thesnowwhiterose  12/20/2014
I love this name. It's a strong, pretty, traditional girl's name. Milly is a cute nickname.
― Anonymous User  6/14/2015
I love the name Millicent. Millicent sounds elegant. Can't go wrong with the nickname Millie. ^_^

My name is Millicent and I'm 30 years old. Growing up with this name has been lovely. Yes, people call me Millie but I don't mind it. Although as an adult I've always preferred Millicent. People who meet me usually comment on how nice and original my name is, which is nice. I do consider it to be a very strong name. If it wasn't my name I would be sure to name my daughter Millicent. It's nice that no one knows anyone named Millicent and it's also nice that it's not too unusual but still not common at all. Overall, I've loved growing up with this name and can honestly say I've never been made fun of for it. Malefacent is definitely a name people say my name reminds them of, especially since the newly released movie with Angelina Jolie but I consider it a compliment.
Mdecamps  8/8/2015
The name Millicent was given to 83 girls born in the US in 2015.
HerculePoirot  6/15/2016
My name is Millicent and I was wondering if someone had the name same as I then I bumped into this site and having a unique name is incredible. No one in our school has the same name as I.
m23  10/24/2016
This name is powerful, possibly a good candidate for some sort of rock/metal singer.
If it's too much, Millie is fine (though has a completely different feel)
