    After great grandpa

    My Great Grandfathers name was Mille Charlie who always went by Charlie. I've been loving the idea of using Millie Charlotte as a combination to honour him. There aren't many longer variants of Millie I like and none that I really live enough to use. The only other possibility would be Amelia 'Millie' Charlotte. What are your thoughts?

    Millie is fine on its own, although I do prefer Amelia/Emilia/Emily, Melisende or Melissa as a full form. And Charlotte just rubs me the wrong way, but it is a gorgeous in its own right as a strong, classic name. The combo works fine.

    If you would like more unusual ways to honor Charlie, than Carlotta, Caroline and Francesca (means same thing) can work as middles or even firsts.

    I think Millie Charlotte is a beautiful way to honour your great grandfather! I'd prefer Amelia since I don't like nickname names, but Millie could be okay on its own.

    I would prefer Millie Charlotte over Amelia because I just don't like Amelia at all. I think nicknames are great personally

    Millie Charlotte would be a great way to honor your great-grandfather. I think Millie stands fine on its own. It's only one letter off from the mega popular Lily (and all variant spellings), and that helps.
