What other names would you suggest? I know Amelia's a hugely popular name but I really like it, especially with the nn Millie. But I can't use it because of similar names already in the family.

Which other names do you think are along similar lines? We have a one syllable surname so it would need to be something quite long.

I prefer Emilia to Amelia as it has no medical connotations. I would avoid both as far too popular.

Camilia, Lorelei, Lucia, Sarena, Guilietta, Elina, Alina, Bianca, Delphia, Talia, Verity, Carena, Zaria, Nadia

Names that millie can reasonably be short for:
Emilia
Emily
Emmeline
Mildred
Millicent
Milisande
Amelie
Melissa
Camille
Camilla
Melanie
Melina
Pamela
Jamelia
Romilly

Some of these are foreign names but I don't think they'd sound too unusual
