How would you pronounce Mimi?

Just a straw poll really - would you say Mim-e or Me-Me?

I would say me-me, but if you don't like the alternative pronunciation and if it will annoy you if people mispronounce it I would think of a different name.

Me me

Interesting that the majority say me-me. I wanted to shorten DD's name to Mimi and pronounce it that way but at a mother and baby group one woman sniggered when I said it and said <<<imagine poncey voice>>> "I assume you mean Mimi". It's made me really self conscious now sad

Wouldn't occur to me that it could be any other way tbh

Tambajam Mon 08-Jun-09 19:35:22

me-me for sure

me-me. Must add though - my French mil is called 'mimi' by all her grandchildren, so it's also a French word for granny...

My dd is shortened to Mimi (me-me) as is one of her friends who is an Imogen

I'd say Me-me (really like it), but I know a woman called Miriam who is definitely a Mimmy
