    Smile Would love your input on our little girls name

    DP and I have been struggling to come up with a name that we both love.

    He has suggested Millie which I really do love. The only problem I am wondering about is this...Millie is usually a nickname so will people be forever asking her what it's short for?

    Do you think it's a nice name that would suit a girl through all stages of her life?

    We've been a bit stumped on a middle name for her, but we both like Elise. Do you prefer it spelt Elise or Elyse? Any other ideas on middle names?

    Thanks so much for your opinions! I had no idea we would struggle so much with choosing a name, and I really want to name her asap.

    I love Millie

    A girl I know is called Milly and its never occurred to me to ask her if its short for something, I just thought it was her name

    I like Elise/Elyse either way!

    I know 2 Amelia's and we call them both Millie. I like it on it's own though... it's very pretty!

    Thanks girls!

    I really love Amelia as well, but DP really doesn't.

    Millie Kate
    Millie Rose
    Millie Grace
    Millie Eve
    Millie Paige

    DD1 has a Millie in her class not short for anything but I know a Millicent who goes by Millie. Millicent is just for her 'big' name if she wants to use it later.

    Thanks! I'm really glad that Millie can be a name in its own right...phew!

    Jane, thanks for your ideas on a middle name! I can't use Kate because that's my name, but I do like Eve! I will ask DP what he thinks as he's the fussy one

    DH and I are having the same problem right now - we were convinced we were having a boy, so had not even thought about girls names!!

    I have a friend who goes by the nn of Millie, her full name is Matilda for something different...

    Of the above middle names I vote for Matilda Rose, very pretty
