I met one yesterday short for Dolores, not a name I would have picked but it quite suited her.

Dolores (also Lolo or Loli)

Dd1 is Lauren and has been known as Lolly, but more often Lol.

Lollie is a bloody stupid name for a child and your DH doesn't even have the excuse of pregnancy hormones..

seeker Tue 09-Oct-12 12:59:41

It's an even stupider name for an adult woman!

I know a Lolly, short for Lauren (a child, obv). Before that I could only imagine it was short for lollypop. Lolly is an odd name for a grown up though, especially if it isn't short for something else.

Please, please do not call your daughter Lollie.

I was going to say it's a stupid name, but SoupDragon beat me to it. The first thing that sprang into my mind was that the simpleton who was gang-raped and then coerced into a marriage of convenience in one of the Game of Thrones books was called Lollys. I'm sure other people would make the connection.

My cousin is Lauren and her nn is Lollie

Laura I would assume.
