I love the nickname Millie.

A badass name; it sounds like one for an evil queen in a Disney movie.

My name's Millicent and I've always liked my name just the way it is, but all throughout my life people have called me Millie. Especially in school, they'd just read the name Millicent and automatically assume that I went by Millie. I have nothing against it, it just didn't fit me plus my nickname was always Enna, so I didn't need another one. As a child I loved my name because it was Barbie's middle name and I was a little obsessed. I've only ever met one other Millicent in my life, it's interesting to read about other Millicents out there...

My name can carry on some very interesting conversations. I find it odd that common people can not pronounce the simplicity of Millicent. I usually tell people it's pronounced: Milli-Cent Like Milli-meter or Centi-Meter & the kicker is to tell people to "smile" saying Millicent to pronounce correctly.
Of course I get Maleficent -- Or Angelina (Jolie) which I LOVE!

Social media has allowed me to connect with other Millicent's... I find it fabulous to have such a different/uncommon name.

Millicent Fenwick was an American politician.

I used to really dislike this name - I felt like it had kind of a cold air to it, haughty and unfeeling. J.K. Rowling used it for a mean Slytherine girl (Millicent Bulstrode - man, Rowling can name a character!), and it also sounded a bit like Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. So for the longest time this was a no-go.

Strangely, however, I've been thinking about this name. And even more strangely... I kind of like it. It has a bit of quirky charm that I pinpoint as being from its similarities to the French "mille" (thousand - same in Latin) and "cent" (hundred - "centum" in Latin). So if you speak French (or know your Latin roots), then Millicent looks like "thousand hundred." I don't know, I thought that was funny.

Whenever I hear Millicent, I personally think of a motherly, sophisticated, middle-aged, and wealthy widow.

Love this name! Super cool sounding. However, I think it would be one of those names that would catch people off guard and have them say: How do you spell that? But still get the spelling wrong. I don't know, I'm torn.

A potential nickname for this name is 'Cindy'.
Lumi  2/27/2019
I love this name - way prettier than Mildred. When I first heard it, it reminded me of the Disney villain Maleficent as well.

Millicent isn't really pretty to me, but I like the nickname Millie.
kayisforkeen  8/11/2018
Never heard of this name until a few minutes ago. I think it's very strange and hideous. I thought of currency too when I heard it.
Luvbug86  6/26/2018
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).
mememan28  4/19/2018
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.

The name Millicent was given to 83 girls born in the US in 2015.
HerculePoirot  6/15/2016
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.

I love the name Millicent. Millicent sounds elegant. Can't go wrong with the nickname Millie. ^_^

I love this name. It's a strong, pretty, traditional girl's name. Milly is a cute nickname.

Don't like this name, as it makes me think of currency and is ugly.

Millicent Rogers (Born: February 1, 1902, Died: January 1, 1953) was a socialite, fashion icon, and art collector.

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.

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
For some reason it reminds me of the word innocent. I still don't like this name though.

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
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
It sounds demonic.

It sounds sexy in a dominatrix kind of way.

It reminds me of shiny things. It's cool!
Chrila96  12/12/2010
A very timeless, graceful name. I love it. :)
― Anonymous User  10/1/2010
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.

A perfect name. I'd fear for the nickname Millie however, which is awfully common.

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.

There's a book named Milicent's Gift. Kind of random.

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

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".
Jonquil  10/30/2008
Very old-fashioned. Millie is an okay nickname, but the ending of this name isn't pretty at all.

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
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!

Millicent Fawcett is a famous bearer, she was the founder of the Suffragists (not suffragettes) that peacefully campaigned for Women's right to vote.

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.

Pretty, but I read a book that ruined the name for me.

Fairly nice name but I can't stop thinking 'millipede' when I hear it.

Another one from Harry Potter is Millicent Bagnold, who preceeded Cornelius Fudge as Minister of Magic.
― Anonymous User  5/5/2007
Yes, it does remind me of the evil fairy person from 'Sleeping Beauty', which puts me off. I prefer Mildred personally.

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
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.
noonsnow  10/4/2006
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.
O Maoileoin  9/5/2006
Millicent reminds me of Maleficent, the evil fairy in "Sleeping Beauty". I don't know why.

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.

Yes, it is correct about the doll Barbie's middle name. Her full name is Barbie Millicent Roberts.

Can also be a variant of Milene. =)

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.

From the Greek name Melissanthe (Melissanthee in Greek), from the Greek words melissa (honey bee) and anthos (flower).

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