  • "My name is Holly and since I was born in the 40's I was the only Holly on the planet (or so I thought) and thus I disliked my name. My dentist always called me "Holly Loake" I think she was a singer on the Arthur Godfrey program on TV; now I am really dating myself! In the last few years I have met and known a lot of women with this name as it has gotten a lot more popular. I was born in April, and have NO idea where my mother got this name."

I was the only Holly I knew growing up, I was in a class with a girl named Lollie one year, it was pretty confusing. Nicknames - just Hollyberry and Hollyhocks!

  • "My name is Hollye. I like my name, it's not weird but also not so common. I was born in February in 1968. I was born in the south and now live in the north east and in my entire lifetime have only met a handful of other Holly's. I was named after my grandfather who's name was Holloway. My mom remembered very fondly when she was a child that her father's friends called him Holly as a nickname. I, like many here, often get misunderstood when telling people my name. Most often people misunderstand my name as Molly or Polly and strangely Paula. As a child a few mean kids called me Jolly Holly and although I was never a fat kid, it hurt my very sensitive childhood feelings. My other nicknames as a child were Miss Hollye by my parents friends and my dad always called me Ha. As an adult my closest friend often refer to me as Haul." Dec. 17, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name! As a child, I had to grow into it, but now I feel like it totally fits me. I was born in March of 1989, in which I only knew a number of "Hollys" growing up. I am a brunette (I've always seen "Holly" as a very warm name, so it's hard for me to think of a "Holly" as blonde). I would describe my personality as friendly, sincere, honest, independent, and loving. Some nicknames that I often get include "hollister," "hollars," "hollyWOULD,"and "SMALLY" (I am small... lol)."

I'm a rather spunky and unique individual and love being myself. The name has never really bothered me. Only person to call me holls is my brother. I get Hollz or Hollzie as well. Some friends call me 'Holly the dolly' but that's fine. I rather like being able to have a nickname at all with such a short name. :) Don't be afraid to name people Holly. It's unique but not unheard of, which so many people seem to want these days. x" Jul. 21, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "Holly is an absolutely wonderful name. It is also mine. People often say, "You know how many 'Holly's are out there?". But, I have only ever met two Hollys. People don't normally spell my name wrong. However, I do get the occassional, "Oh, you must be a slut, with the same name as Holly Madison!" or "Hoe-lee! Cum' ere!". I still love the name though. It is so fun to write, especially in cursive. The loopy 'l's and the y make it absolutely adorable, yet it can also be professional. I can imagine a little toddler, a 9 year old, a 17 year old, or even a 50 year old with this name. I have never met an ugly Holly, and I am constantly told how beautiful I am :) I hate the nicknames "Holls" or "Holl". Please refrain from calling us that! However, I'd love to be called "Hollyberry"! I am a Christmas baby, born on the 23th of December, and people are always fascinated when I tell them that. I do get some jokes about that though, such as, "hey, holly jolly christmas!!". I am okay with that though, because there is a nickname for every name. I have never read Breakfast and Tiffany's, but I am sometimes called Holly Golightly! Overall, Holly is a wonderful name that suffers little and lasts a life time. She is smart, yet talented in the atheletic and music fields, and is always, always a great friend. :)" Jun. 3, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am a Holly, when I was a kid I didn't like my name. It seemed too unique for my taste and I wished for something more common. But now I quite like it. Whenever I would drop my car off to be serviced the fellas there would always misspell my name as Holley. They used that spelling because of Holley carburetors which are apparently a high performance auto part. The nickname that seems to have stuck to me is Howie so I hardly never hear my name, unless I'm at the doctors office." May. 20, 2010: Report as inappropriate

Overall it is my name and I wished I had something more unique growing up, but it is mine and I would never change it." May. 8, 2010: Report as inappropriate

It's nice having a name that's different, but yet not completely weird/unheard of. People often hear "Molly," "Polly," or even "Colleen" when I introduce myself, so I like to say "no, HOLLY, like Christmas." It usually gets a laugh. I also like to tell people I have to watch out for boys with the last names Wood, Mackrel, Davidson, and Cow, just because if I was to ever marry them and take their name, it would cause a riot!"
