Three vessels of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Mignonne, which means "dainty" in French.

  • Mignonne was captured by the British in 1794 in the harbour of Calvi, used briefly and then burnt in 1797 as useless.
  • Mignonne was a French navy corvette that the British captured in 1803 and disposed of in 1804 after she grounded at Jamaica.
  • Mignonne was the French navy brig Phaeton, which Pique captured in 1806. She was renamed Musette that same year and was sold in 1814.
