Millie is fashionable again in England and Wales, where it's Number 26, and especially in Scotland where's it's reached Number 10. In the USA it's a winner with parents who like the offbeat, frilly, and old-fashioned. Millicent would be an appealing long form, but many people are using Millie all by its cute self -- so many, in fact, that it jumped 100 spots between 2013 and 2014.
Millie was in the Top 1000 here until 1966, peaking at Number 128 way back in 1881; it made a return appearance in 2009, and is beginning to climb. The name got a lot of attention via the 1967 film Thoroughly Modern Millie.
Fashionable relative: Milla or Mila. Tillie is another old-school nickname that, like Millie, sounds modern again.
