Lollie is short for Lollipop.

i'd say it is fine as a nickname, but really as a Proper Name?? Not so much.

Laurel/Lauren/Lola could all be shortened.

I know someone who has a DD called Lollie. No idea what it is short for but the fact that she has a sister called Poppy makes me wonder what some people are thinking when they name their children.

I wonder when this current fashion for 'cutesy' names will pass - Lollie, Mollie, Poppy, Ellie, Tilly, Milly, Billy etc...

...and people start looking for more 'solid' names?!

I know an Olivia who is called Lollie as a pet name.

What's a 'solid' name???

I know a Lauren called Lolly.

I have a Louisa, people have tried to shorten her name to Lolly/Lolly Lou <vom> they get a death stare.

A 'solid' name is one that isn't cutesy, so names like Lauren (instead of Lollie), Eleanor (instead of Ellie), Catherine, Antonia, Elizabeth, etc are all solid names imo.
