Meaning & History

This surname is thought to be a respelling of Millais, which may come from the French surname Millet, a metonymic occupational name for a grower or seller of millet or panic grass (derived from a diminutive form of Old French mil which is then derived from Latin milium meaning "millet").

One bearer of this name was American lyrical poet and playwright Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892-1950).
