My daughter is called Polly and she loves her name. There are no others at school with her and her teachers always say what a lovely name she has. Her friends like it too. Our surname is quite unusual and distinctive and Polly goes very well with it. It is a beautiful name in my opinion.

I prefer Holly myself, but it is Ok.

I would also like to add that we have never had the "Polly put the kettle on" thing but she did once dress up as "Miss Polly had a dolly" for a class Nursery Rhyme day when she was in Reception class.

I love this name - wanted to put it on our list but DH has sadly vetoed.

Ah I think it's a sweet name!

Absolutely love it,would have chosen it if had another girl.

I like it. Have never met one.

I know one. Don't like the name at all. Sounds like a dolls name to me, sorry.

I like it, it is sweet, would not suit a big bulky girl, so could be burdensome depending on the child.

I like it. I know an adult Polly.

Great name wink

Fab name, don't know any but it's gorgeous!

Lovethesea Thu 27-Dec-12 20:29:53

Not my taste, but I don't like Molly, Holly or Polly.

Reminds me of dolls and just doesn't have enough weight to it for me.

love it

One of the loveliest people I know is called Polly. It is a great name.

I wanted Pollyanna, nn Polly but my dh vetoed it. If we had another girl though I'd push for it again. Love the name.

I have a Polly. She does get called Holly or Poppy occasionally but it's still such a fabulous name. Don't know any others. Often get complimented on it because it's not a name heard often but isn't strange.

dd mn is Polly. really wanted it but had promised to use a family name. it is a pretty but not frilly name. go for it. have been teaching for 11 yrs and only ever had one.

Love it smile

I really like it, know a couple of people who considers it but none who used it

I know a little Polly. To me it sounds posh but in a nice way. I think it's much nicer than Holly or Molly, both of which I think are quite ugly names. However, it sounds a little bit like a nickname or, as other posters have said, like a doll's name.

Love Polly, know a Pollyanna but prefer Polly
