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 returned to the Top 500 in 2015 for the first time since World War 2.
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.
