Awwwwwww. It's so cute. I love it! It's just so adorable! My sister's name is Melanie, but I call her Mimi.

Mimi is usually a self-imposed nickname. The kind of person who wants to name themself MIMI, is almost certainly the type of person who needs a square punch in the face. This name is horrible. I think you might as well name yourself BEEATCH.

Mimi sounds like the name of a cat to me! It is not mature enough to be taken seriously, but can be cute when you are little.
-- Anonymous User  8/9/2006
I agree that Mimi is usually a name that a girl gives to herself. I know a girl called Aimee who calls herself Mimi. She isn't very nice and is selfish so I guess "me me" is appropriate! Don't call your daughter this name!

I didn't like the name at first, but it grew on me. It's so cute and feminine, and even the sound is cute. Isn't it also sometimes used as a form of Mariah? I do think it's better as a nickname than a first name though, as it's SO cute that it only fits certain people.
-- Iridosmine  10/16/2006
My name is Mimi, my parents have always called me that. My real name is Mildred and I much prefer Mimi. My grandmother's name was Mildred and she was called Mimi but spelled Mimi.
-- mimi520  11/1/2006
I don't like this name, probably because of Mariah Carey and because it sounds like a cat's name.
-- bellaboo  11/17/2006
There is an author named Mimi Latt.

This is what Mariah Carey's mother called her as a nickname. Very cute, for a person OR a pet!
-- Taydbug112  12/17/2006
Lol. There was, or maybe still is, a cartoon called 'What About Mimi' and Mimi was the main character.
-- Surreal  1/7/2007
I have known a Melina whose nickname was Mimi, so I suppose you could use it for any "M-" name.

A famous bearer is Mimi Tachikawa from Digimon Adventure and Zero Two. She originated from Japan but moved to New York before Zero Two.

My cousin's name is Naomi, and since we were little everyone's always called her Mimi (I think because when we were little Naomi was too hard to pronounce? Although her sister's name is Nicole but everyone calls her Nikki so it could just be their family likes nicknames). So I get a very positive impression from this name, and am a bit offended that people would suggest the name is "snobby" and "self-given", because I know for a fact that I didn't even realize my cousin's real name was Naomi until I was at least ten, because everyone ALWAYS called her Mimi.

One really shouldn't assume without a reason. It could just be a nickname from a longer name that happens to end in "-mi".

Here in China, "Mimi, come here" is the common way to call a cat (pet) if don't know its name.

Mimi in Hawaiian means urine, or to urine.
-- A.R.  4/2/2007
I think this name sounds stuck up and whiney. No offense to anyone, but it just sounds like a spoiled little girl to me, or one of those obnoxious little poodlepuff dogs.
-- Anonymous User  6/3/2007
I think this is an okay name for a person, but I love it for a pet! My friend has a siamese cat named Mimi. Get it? Because siaMESE and it sounds like MImi. So cute! :)
-- LindzPop  6/11/2007
I think it's kind of an odd name. Besides, whenever I hear it I can't get the image out of my head of Roger in RENT singing "MIMI!" at the top of his lungs at the end.

In Southern Italy, Mimi (with a stress on the second syllable) is also used for men as a nickname for Domenico.

Madeleine "Mimi" Force, from the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz. I agree, you could use this nickname for almost any M name. My aunt's name is Miriam, and she goes by Mimi.
-- Luanna  1/25/2008
I like this nickname. It's cute.
-- Gamesrock  1/25/2008
Can you imagine an adult with this name?
-- sweetkit  3/12/2008
Yes, I know one. She is a nice, well to do woman.
-- Anonymous User  3/16/2008
Too girly, cutesy, and infantile. I don't think someone with this name would easily be taken seriously. The name is so ditzy.
-- slight night shiver  4/30/2008
This woman will not be taken seriously.
-- bananarama  9/28/2008
I kind of like this as a nickname for Amelia, but I would only use it when the girl was young. I don't think it will age very well. So thumbs up for Mimi as a nickname, but at least give the child something to fall back on if they choose to have a more "mature" sounding name later.

In my baby name book, the name Mimi means "resolute opponent". :)

In Australian Aboriginal mythology, a "Mimi" is a fairy-like being from Arnhem Land folklore. They have extremely long, thin bodies and are said to have taught the local Aborigines how to hunt, prepare kangaroo meat and use fire. They are like humans, but from another dimension.

Their name may come from the song of a zebra finch.

In Australia, girls called Mimi may be named after these indigenous fairies rather than being short for Maria, Miriam etc. It is pronounced MEE-MEE.
-- keepitreal  1/25/2011
I know a girl named Megan who has been called Mimi by her family her entire life. So, like a previous user stated, I suppose it could be used for just about any M-name.
-- JanetLouise  4/24/2011
Mimi is used in Spanish as a nickname for Miriam or Mireia/Mirella.
-- x__isa  5/31/2011
Don't forget that ANY nickname can be used for ANY name, whether related or not. For example, in Puccini's opera La Boheme, the "real" name of the character Mimi is Lucia!

Could be a nickname for Marie :)
-- Oohvintage  1/19/2013
"Mimi" is primarily a diminutive of the name Miriam, and not of Maria.

Maria is such a common name that it is assumed to be the origin of a number of other names such as Miriam, Mariam, and so forth, but at least in the case of Miriam and Maria, I believe they are very different names.
-- Archimedes  7/8/2013
I have this name and it gets annoying to hear people tell me how cute it is whenever they ask me what my name is lol
I have heard that it originates from 'Maria' or 'Minerva'.

Well I have a beautiful daughter who is 6 years old and she is called Mimi. Many people might not like it but I think its perfect for her. People assume that it's a nickname but Mimi is her real name I it couldn't suit her any more. There is nobody in her whole school called that and she feels special. I think when she is an adult it will age with her. Whether she will be taken seriously or not will be more about how she conducts herself as an adult.

This is a pretty, AMAZING name for a girl! :D xx.
