At my church there is the cutest little boy named Miller. His 11 year older sister is named Maeghan. He is so cute and I love his name. Totally suits him.

I like it for a girl more than a boy, about 60/40. A cute route to Millie!

MaryKathryn Says:


I don't have a problem with the name itself, its a great unisex name, but the people that I know who sport this name are not my kind of people. Therefore, I don't like this name because of the people I associate it with.

IvyRose Says:


The only person I've ever heard of with Miller as a first name is Miller from Market Warriors whose a woman so I'm surprised there isn't a girls entry for this as well. There's nothing about this name that lends it more to one gender or the other.
