    Re: Does anyone like Mildred?

    Millicent has a softer sound than Mildred in my opinion. It's definitely the ending for me. Whereas Mildred is abrupt, Millicent has a gentler feel. Mildred reminds me of names like Gladys, Eunice, Ethel and Beulah - all of which are not ready for a comeback (I hope)!
    All the best,

    Re: Does anyone like Mildred?

    I may come around to Millicent, but it reminds me of "Militant"
    the "dread" ending is a little frumpy, I would agree there. I think a little girl could pull it off though.


    I should have said in my original message that I am completely OK if you comment and bash the name. I did say I feel almost delusional about the name and maybe eventually all the negative comments will sink in. They obviously do because I have 4 girls none named Mildred I just keep coming back to it and feel like I need to say yes or no for good!

    I actually like it. I think it's cute. Maude, on the otherhand, horrid. I do like Millicent as well.

    Not really, as someone else said the dread part does it in for me. Plus Millicent is much better.

    Re: Does anyone like Mildred?

    Ha! I was right, Theresa! Mildred's a bit of a dud. No, I'm kidding - sort of...

    Mila, Milena, and Milla are better options with more "commercial" appeal than Mildred, I think. Oh, and Millicent, but I think these others are a bit more fun. Milena has a great meaning, too - "love, warmth, grace."
