"No offense to British film actress Minnie Driver (now big in Hollywood), but the name still sounds a bit like Minnie Mouse, or Minnie Caldwell from the Sixties and Seventies' episodes of Coronation Street, Ena Sharples' mouse-like friend and fellow pensioner." Jan. 18, 2008:

"My name is Minnie, people always ask me if it is short for something else or a nickname. People always misspell it as Mini. That frustrates me. I feel like people referring the name to being small is stupid as well, I?m a twin and I was the smaller one. You decide I spose." Nov. 11, 2020:
"Minnie is my name and I didn't like it for awhile, but it's the name my mom gave me and now I'm very comfortable with it. People do make Minnie Mouse jokes and tell me I look like a Beverly. Now, how does she look? I guess like me." Aug. 28, 2014:
"I tend to follow Liz rnuoad as she always has beautiful work and always explains her concepts and products used, which is a big help to a novice scrapper like myself. To be honest I didn't know Adorn-it even did papers, I only ever knew about the little alpha stickers (which are my fave), so I have gained allot from this week's blog hopping. Thankyou Adorn-it, thankyou Liz. xoxo Sandie" Apr. 13, 2012:
"My daughter is named Minnie after her Great Grandmother and has NOTHING to do with Minnie Mouse. My Grandmother passed away while I was pregnant with her and as I always wanted to name my first daughter Minnie, there was no doubt in my mind that would be her name. And funny enough, even for a 2 1/2 year old she is super tall. I joke that she will be 6 feet tall and be named Minnie :)" Apr. 2, 2012:
"British actress Minnie Driver was born in 1970 as Amelia Driver and got her nickname in childhood. Although she is now big in Hollywood, the name is still seen in some older people's minds as being associated with Minnie Mouse and with Minnie Caldwell, Ena Sharples' friend in the northern British soap 'Coronation Street', who was herself a bit of a mouse as opposed to tough, hair-netted battleaxe Ena."
