If you were having a daughter, and you had to name her either Mildred or Melania, which would it be?
Melania all the way. Mildred ends with the syllable /dread/
Melania sounds like a disease to me.
Mildred is going to get creamed, and I did vote for Melania, but I have some love for Mildred. If you think of it more like mild + red instead of mild (ew) + dred it’s kind of sweet.
I really like the nickname Millie and I had two great-aunt Mildred’s so I pick it over Melania (which reminds me of a melanoma.)
* Mildreds not Mildred’s
Have to go with Mildred. Just don’t care for Melania (at all). I also love the nickname Millie.
I chose Mildred. Melania is unfamiliar to me and it kind of reminds me of skin pigment. Plus, I know a nice lady named Mildred.
I don’t love either, but Mildred is my great-aunt’s name. Plus, I tend to lean towards less frilly names. Melania looks made up instead of frumpy. And Mildred offers up the nicknames Millie and Red.
I don’t really like either:
Melania ~ Melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer
Mildred ~ ends with the sound of dread. Talk about a downer
I ended up voting for Melania because two possible nicknames (Mel & Lana) are more appealing than the nicknames Mildred offers.
I’d have a son!
