Diminutive of Mignon, as -ette is a French feminine diminutive suffix. As such, this given name literally means "little darling" in French.In the Anglosphere, Mignonette is the name of a flower (genus Reseda). As a given name, Mignonette was especially popular in Victorian times, as that is when more floral names began to be used as given names.Last but not least, in literature, Mignonette is the middle name of Amelia "Mia" Thermopolis, the main character of the book The Princess Diaries written by the American author Meg Cabot (b. 1967). The book was later adapted into a film with the same title and starred American actress Anne Hathaway (b. 1982) as Mia.
