Hello.

I am not actually pregnant but will be ttc later this year and am looking in advance to have a list of names that would go with Hollie and also just some names that are nice. I just wanted to see what others can come up with, including twin names just in case (they run in both sides of our families).

I'm not looking for anything with too weird of a spelling although a slight variation i.e. Catherine or Katherine is fine, because they are both valid names.

I named Hollie with the ie instead of Y as we loved the name but my partner has a Y surname so two Y's next to each other seemed awfully odd. Plus we wanted people to know we didn't name her for being around Christmas time as she is an April baby.

Thanks very much for your input.
thanks

Ivy.
Or given your weird spelling Ivie

I explained why I chose the name so no need to be sarcy, is there.

Some people, honestly don't know how to read - don't they teach this in school anymore?

For examples of names we thought of for DD:

Danielle
Anabelle
Anna
Charlotte
Rebecca

or if she was a boy:
Gregory
Alexander
George
Leon

Single syllable name would be best I think. How about:

Hollie Rose
Hollie Ann
Hollie Jane

I don't like names that are spelt wrongly. Its Holly.

Holfin Sat 14-Jun-14 16:26:21

I like the name and the spelling. How about Hollie Elizabeth ?

She's not asking for a middle name option or opinions on her choice of spelling but for nice sibling names for future child! Jeez! Or sorry JESUS wouldn't want to offend anyone!

How about:

Jessica
Sophia
Emilia
Isobel
Arabella
Anya
Clara
Loretta
Elise
Coral
Belle
Ophelia

Choosing is half of the fun!

Saying that the spellling is weird is a fact, whatever reasons you have.

And I believe the word you were looking for is sarcastic, not sarcy, which does not exist.

Alita7 Sat 14-Jun-14 18:31:18

We have a Holly (I decided to stuff the Xmas thing).

Dd2 is Abbie (Abigail) and ds when he comes out will be Sam.

I know sisters called Hollie and Lucie and others called Holly and Kate as well.

Sarcy is clearly the sarcastic way of spelling sarcastic, get with the programme.

funnyoldonion Sat 14-Jun-14 19:01:57

Love Freya with Hollie x

newpup Sat 14-Jun-14 19:03:01

Goodness! Bet you did not expect some of the replies you got Op! How mean some people are Hollie is lovely.

How about Sophia, Eleanor or Lucy, depends if you want something to contrast a little as in Sophia or something the same such as Rosie or Lottie?

I think most boys names go with Hollie, can't think of one that does not apart form Ollie! :-)

Wannabestepfordwife Sat 14-Jun-14 19:05:22

I know a holly and blossom which I thinks gorgeous

picnicbasketcase Sat 14-Jun-14 19:05:50

Hollie is a perfectly recognisable and accepted variation of Holly. It's like Katy / Katie. It's not like it's a crazy you'neek spelling.

Alita7 Sat 14-Jun-14 19:09:21

oops did not think of Hollie and ollie when I suggested Oliver :p

Pebbles0934 Sat 14-Jun-14 20:22:49

Some people are so hideous and nasty. Must have very unhappy lives and want to spread their misery.

I know a Holly and Chloe and a Holly and Gregory if that helps!

I think most things will go well with Hollie though.... Except Molly!

Faye springs to mind for some reason?

HilariousInHindsight Sat 14-Jun-14 20:41:59

Sorry I am talking about a sibling for my daughter Hollie.

Thank you so far to those who aren't ignorant who died and made you God.

douchbag Sat 14-Jun-14 20:46:32

My daughter is called Hollie and her middle name is Anne after her nana

HilariousInHindsight Sat 14-Jun-14 20:47:40

Thanks am adding a few to our list.

smile

Yes some people are positively rude.

Sarcy is a shortening- do you complain to your friends when they say baccy or Sarnie star?

Bunbaker Sat 14-Jun-14 20:49:59

It's a pretty name regardless of the spelling. I don't subscribe to the school of thought that names "go with" other names, so just choose one that you like.

Those of you with Hollies have you found that you have had to correct other people's spelling of the name a lot?

pilates Sat 14-Jun-14 20:52:08

Ignore Hilarious, nothing wrong with your spelling of Hollie.

How about Hollie and Jake, Hollie and Nathan.
How about Hollie and Eliza , Hollie and Lucy?

nooka Sat 14-Jun-14 20:55:56

Well Hollies is perfectly fine of course smile Sorry. Hollie just looks very odd to me, is it really a recognised variant? I think names that derive from flowers/plants etc should be spelled as the flower/plant is. But then my dd's short name is Lily but where we live now everyone seems to want to add another 'l' for some reason. Looks very odd to me.

My only view on a sibling name is that it probably shouldn't end in the same 'ie/y' sound as his/her sister.
