    Default girly names - is Millie childish for an adult??

    Hi, have just found out we are expecting a girl due Feb and are choosing names, I have always loved the name Isla Rose (last name is Moogan), DH absolutely hates Isla but has agreed on Rose for a middle name, we both love Millie and Millie Moogan goes well together. We were thinking Ameila as Millie is cute for a little girl but maybe not for an adult. However my nan's mother was Ameila but my nan hated her, she was not even at my nans wedding, I don't want to offend my nan by calling our daughter Ameila, so I'm now considering Millie... What are your thoughts, is Millie to childish for an adult???

    I personally love the name Millicent, with Millie as a nick name.

    I don't think it's too childish to use Millie for an adult though.

    We've just named our baby Amelia with Millie as a nickname. She can use either when she's an adult

    I love Millie.
    I know a grown up Millie. I don't think it sounds any more childish than a Sophie (which I adore as well) or my name which is Kirsty...

    I had a teacher called Millie. She would have been in her 40's/50's and the name was very fitting.

    Love the name Millie. I named my dog Milly and when she's in trouble shes called Mildred ( not suggesting you use Mildred though!)

    Millie can be a nickname for Emily too.

    Millie Rose is a cute name. Millie does remind me of a little girl. I know of a Millie, her real name is Emily, which she can use when she is older. I know a Camilla that gets Millie too.
    PS. I love the name Isla, it is one of my favorites. Milla is also nice.
