    Congratulations. What a lovely name.

    Is that Mee-la or Mill-a?

    Why not just name her Mila if that’s what she’s always going to be referred to as? Dear grandma, I named my baby after you but I don’t actually like the name so I’m never going to call her that. Dumb.

      Well maybe they wanted to honor someone, or maybe just didn’t like it as a stand alone first name.

    Haha l agree its like meet my son Christopher but we call him Frank!! I think Maggie would be a better alternative.

    Why not just name her Mila if that’s what she’s always going to be referred to as. I dont understand people like that.

    Calling the child something other than her given name is no different than calling Roberts the nickname Bob, Samanthas called Sam or any other such thing. I like the name Mila. It’s fresh, different , easy to spell either and doesnt’ sound as if it will age badly.

      Bob is a derivative of Robert and Sam of Samantha. Mila is a lovely name but you’re completely missing the point.

  • Ellen

    Congrats. I like the name.

  • arabella

    yeah I understand stand the nickname thing but how did she get mila from Margaret or Laura .Like someone naming their daughter Megan Elizabeth and calling her molly.

    Sweet pictures. The one of the president holding her is cute – with his arm all awkward! Jenna looks amazing after giving birth too!
