Millie is a girl's name, often short for Mildred or Millicent. I recall the next door neighbor of the Petries on The Dick van Dyke Show, Millie Halper (Helper?). Comic relief. Come to think of it, every single character on that show was comic relief--no wonder it was so good & popular! And IIRC, Millie (Jane Powell) was the bride of Adam Pontipee (Howard Keel) in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

A thoroughly modern era, to be sure.
