    What do you think of Camilla? My immediate association is with the Duchess of Cornwall. NMS, but it's not horrible.

    Is it pronounced like cuh - mill as in million - uh or cuh - meal as in eat a meal - uh? cam-ILL-uh, so like your first one I suppose.

    Does the nickname Millie work? Yes. Yes it does.

    I pronounce it Ca mill uh. It is a beautiful and Millie is a great nickname.
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

    I'd pronounce it Ca-mill-ah. Its okay, but I vastly prefer Camille. So much classier and far more chic imo.
