Millie can also be a shortname for Milene. Pronounced M-I-L-EE-N not MY-LYNN.

This was also a nickname for Emily or Amelia, especially during the 1900's-1920's I think. It sounds dated for Amelia but to me, it sounds great for Millicent, Camilla and other names starting with 'Mil.' 'Mil' also means strength, determination, admiring so Millie can mean 'admirable strength.'

Millie or Milly is a cute, strong name with an "industrious" meaning.

I don't know why I think of cookies or pies when I hear this name but it's alright--it's quaint and sounds better than other nicknames I've heard. I used to have a cat named Millie, but it never fit her anyway.

A nice nickname. In my opinion, it sounds very sweet and feminine. :-)

My name is Amelia, and my sister who couldn't pronounce it properly, shortened it to Millie. I like it because it's cute but don't want to lose my identity as Amelia. Often people who know me as Millie think it is an abbreviation of Mildred or Millicent, which is annoying because I don't like either of these names! I think the spelling "Millie" is more mature-sounding than when it is spelt with a "y".

This is the closest name to mine. I like this name better, it is really nice and old fashioned seeming.

I have a friend named Emily whose nickname is Millie.

The name Millie seems rather old fashioned and unattractive. There are some older names that can stand the test of time, but I don't feel that Millie is one of them.

The name Millie is borne by the title character, Millie Dillmount, in the film "Thoroughly Modern Millie." The film was adapted into a musical in 2002 on Broadway, and was transfered to the West End in 2004. In the film, the character was played by Julie Andrews. In the original Broadway cast, the character was played by Sutton Foster.

Millie McKoy was a famous American conjoined twin, born into slavery with her sister Christine.

I think it's cute but not as a legal name.

A famous bearer of this name is Millie Harris, one of the main characters in the movie Jumper.
-- Lady_Skywalker  11/11/2008
It sounds very cute and sweet.

I think this is a really fun name. But I think it would be better as a nickname. This could also work as a nickname for Madeline.
-- Genevieve_M  4/5/2009
It's a cute nickname, but sadly it's short for the extremely dated names Millicent and Mildred. The good thing is that it can also work as a nickname for the more modern Camilla/Camille. Even as a legal name, it would sound more "thoroughly" modern.

Millie was the name of one of the main characters in the movie. Uh oh I can't remember the title of this romantic comedy. Something like "Yes Mother" or something along those lines. She was a really sweet girl who had trouble finding the right guy. Her mother tried setting her up with different guys.

Yes, the movie was "Yes, Mother" to the above comment.

I really love this nickname. We use it for our baby girl who's given name is Amelia. To me it is a bit old fashioned but so sweet! I've had SO many compliments on her name (both Millie and Amelia). She is the happiest baby I have ever met and I'm sure I'm not biased at all:) Millie is just a charming and endearing name. How could you not like a Millie?

The character of the grandmother in the new show Parenthood is named Camille and goes by Millie (or Milly).

Yesterday I asked my little sister what she'd name her kids if she ever had any, and she immediately (to my delight) answered, "Millie!" I was so happy that she had said Milly/Millie instead of something trendy or overused, like Hannah or Violet or Ella. Although I liked her sibset (Joanna, Milena (Milly), Franklin and Samuel) I'm not too keen on Millie. It's a cute nickname, but it's not substantial or very mature.

I absolutely love this name, it is my own and I wouldn't change it for anything, the only thing that I don't like about it is the amount of names it is a diminutive for... but apart from that, I love it.
-- ImSorryIfILoveYou96  9/21/2011
Yuck, a very babyish name... and very annoying... please please PLEASE don't name your daughter this!
-- MrB123  10/24/2011
Millie Burtonburger from Kid Vs. Kat is the main character Coop's little sister.

Boring, simpering, weak little name. I loathe it.

My best friend is called Millie and I love the name. It is sweet and innocent for a child but can also be sophisicated for a teenger/adult. It is not to commenly used either. Sometimes though, I do feel sorry for her when people always ask "is it short for millicent or mildred" and she always has to say "no it is just Millie and isn't short for anything".
