Totally crashing your DDC here but I have a Millie. Her Name is Millicent Jane. We call her Millie or Millie Jane. Everyone assumes her name is Mildred. We get "who is she named after?" and " I have a great Aunt Millie" a lot. I think my husband and I are the only two people on the planet not to have a great Aunt Millie we just liked the name! One month after she was born they introduced the character on One tree hill named Millicent/Millie I was so ticked off! I think Mildred is adorable, I liked Millicent only slightly more! I have to say we get great reactions to the name people seem to like it.
I voted no. I love old fashioned names for girls, but I don't think Mildred is one of the "pretty" old fashioned names. It ranks with names like Bertha and Agnes and Edith, I think. I don't like that the sound of the word "dread" is in the name. But like others have said, I love Millie. Amelia is a great suggestion. The worst she'd have to deal with would be being called "Amelia Bedelia."
