What do you think of the name Holly?

Do you find it cutesyand too Christmassy or is it classic and year round? I kind of see it as a glamorous, Audrey Hepburn in breakfast at tiffanys, but not sure if others will appreciate the same vibe? Thanks

I like it, it's very pretty smile

I haven't watched breaking bad, will people really think of that? Is it a bad character?

no she's just the gorgeous beautiful baby. nothing bad atall and no-one will remember in 3 months. It is a classic and lovely name smile

I have a Holly Robyn... She's beautiful, even if I am biased......

She was born 31st August, so year round name for us!! I'm an Xmas day baby and have the latest festive name ever!!!

I have a Holly. Born in November so not technically a Christmas baby - we loved the name anyway.

Really like the name Holly. And don't think it is a Christmas name.

I love Holly but am due at Christmas so probably won't use it- I feel like it's only cutesy if used for a Christmas baby. I might be overthinking this though smile

I have a Holly Meredith born in Feb. We didn't think it was a Christmas name, just classic and no spelling issues.

I think it's lovely.
Definitely not just a Christmas name.

Unfortunately there sometimes are spelling issues - we've often been asked if it's Holly or Hollie confused

I love Holly and don't think it's just a Christmas name.

I love it. And it's at the top of my girls name short list for dc2 due in April. Definately not just a Christmas name. In fact I think it's better as a non Christmas name as otherwise it's very cliché

It's a lovely name and I like the spelling Holly.

Fine as a Christmas name or at any other time. No need to try to avoid it at Christmas, it's more naff to purposely rule it out IMHO

I really like it and agree it is an all year name. Now that DD has used a few of my other names for her dolls I will be short listing it for DC 2 (if there is to be a DD2)

I would expect a Holly to be a Christmas baby.

LoganMummy Sat 19-Oct-13 20:40:13

Agree that Holly is a beautiful name.

I think it is a quite Christmassy. But sweet nonetheless. I know a Holly so called because her parents conceived her around Christmas time.

Also, Holly Golightly was a prostitute.

I have a Holly - beautiful name for a beautiful young lady

Rhubarbgarden Sun 20-Oct-13 20:26:26

I like it.

I really love this name, but for me personally it's for baby girls born at Christmas.

Holly always my favourite name love it. My eldest daughter was born Christmas Eve and yes we called her holly . If she had been born any other day off the year she still would have been holly .

Love it. Though I love the Christmas association to it too.

And you're right about the Audrey Hepburn connection!
