Hello all, I have a six month old camilla. Since she was born her two year old big bro has called her milla and still does. It has caught on a bit, so much so that even one set of gp's and aunts and uncles call her it. It's sort of become her name in my head, which was never the intention but you know how these things happen. What I'm wondering is if I should go with it, encourge it or nip it in the bud now, seeing as it's not strictly a "real" nn (if such a thing exists). What do you think of milla as a nn?

If you like it, use it.

I have a friend named Milla and think it's very pretty.

If you like it carry on, I think it's pretty. She can always revert back to Camilla when she's older if she wants to.

I don't believe in 'real nicknames' but if I did then I would say your daughter has one. Milla is a shortening of her name that just happened, wasn't forced or planned and has been adopted by many people. Don't worry, and for what it's worth, it's a lovely nn.

I think I prefer Mila.

I think it's lovely. I prefer it to Camilla actually.

I know a baby Mila - not a NN, but her real 'given' name.
