Meaning:Gentle strength
This Old English name is chock-full of vintage charm and has Anglo-Saxon roots. Made up of the words mild, meaning “mild” or “gentle,” and þryð, meaning “power, strength,” Mildred means "gentle strength." This old-fashioned name was popular with parents throughout the beginning of the twentieth century before quickly dropping down the charts. Nowadays, parents might be drawn to the adorable nickname Millie, as much as they might be to the name's adorable meaning, which is something they can encourage baby to embrace.
