"My name is Milan. "Milan" means graceful, mercyful, dear, kind etc. It is pronounced "Mil" (like MILionaire) "an" (like ANtidote). It is slavic male name, and it's very wrong giving that name to girls, very wrong. Many people in Slovakia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Croatia, Ukrain are named Milan." Aug. 16, 2010:
"I named my daughter Milan. We pronounce it Mill-an like the italian city not My-lan which to me is a boys name. Alot of people do think it is pronounced Mulan like the disney movie. I guess they need to work on their geography and asian history." Aug. 12, 2010:
"I was born in 1962 in the south where it is common to have blended boy-girl names like Bobby Sue or Johnnie Kay, etc. My mother named me after her father "Millard Andrews". My name is Millanne pronounced Mill-anne. At the time, the only other person my mother had encountered with the same spelling and pronounciation was a woman in Jacksonville, FL named Millanne Fish who was 80yrs old when my mother met her (in the 70's). She told my mother that she was named after her aunt who was many years deceased.
My mother is very creative and thought that she had "made-up" the name she was somewhat "put out" that she not find the origin of the name. I have had several people during my lifetime say they liked "my" name and they wanted to use it to name their child, but I know of only one person who has done this...they spell it differently however. So...if you have the same name and your mother was born around the same time as me maybe we knew each other. I have lived in all parts of the south including VA and DC. It would be very cool to find out!" Jan. 24, 2010:
"my daughter is also Milan and we pronounce it Me-larn (Mi-larn). She gets Millie for short and everyone loves it. it's nice having something different :)" May. 19, 2009:
