Minnie is a feminine name which came about as the pet form of Wilma and Wilhelmina. Both of these names are feminine variants of the name William, which is of Old German origin and is said to mean ‘Seeking Protection’. Unlike William Minnie is not especially popular in England but is more popular in America where the feminine names were spread by people settled from Germany. Popularity may be due also to its use as the name of the character Minnie Mouse in the Disney franchise.
