I had my history exam today and one of the people I wrote about in my essay was Millicent Fawcett the leader of the Suffragists, which began in 1863. Millicent is a germanic name meaning strong in work. Millicent is at 556 in England while Millie ranks 26 in England, 94 in Victoria, 49 in Tasmania and 114 in NSW.
