Sorry, me again! We have narrowed it down to these girls names but not decided upon which. Leaning more towards Mollie/Molly (which spelling?) but decided to canvas MN opinions.

Sister to Lilly, Jack and Alexandra. Not fussed about her having a high court judge name!

Molly is very popular I took DD to a party today and a third of the girls were called Molly

Holly <controversial> wink

we were torn between Molly and Polly - concensus was that Polly sounded like a horse (?) so went with Molly, which I still like, but now wish we'd had Polly!

Polly, by a mile.

Polly, no contest! Love the name.

Kyrptonite Sun 07-Apr-13 17:10:36

Polly makes me think of miss polly had a dolly. I work in a nursery so I can't escape the bloody song!

I liked Hollie. DP doesn't. Which is odd as he likes all other 'olly' names!

MacCrackles Sun 07-Apr-13 17:31:53

I prefer Polly as it's more unusual.

Jezabelle Sun 07-Apr-13 21:47:40

Mollie. Beautiful.

Hulababy Sun 07-Apr-13 21:50:26

I have a Mollie.
The older people we knew of directly and indirectly generally had it spelled with an ie, rather than a y, and I personally prefer the way it looks.

DD is now 11y and DD has no friends with the same name, nor do any of our adult friends have children with the same name. It may be popular in some areas, but obviously not here.

Molly's are two a penny and Mollie just looks wrong.

Kyrptonite Sun 07-Apr-13 21:57:25

I prefer it Mollie. Not sure why but I don't seem to like y endings in names.

I like both (and Holly) and knew a Lolly (but felt it was immensely silly for a grown woman to keep up that kind of name tbh).

toffeelolly Mon 08-Apr-13 01:33:23

Love pollywink

elsabel Sun 14-Apr-13 17:38:40

I love Molly/Mollie and considering using it myself, not sure on which spelling either though!

carovioletfizz Sun 14-Apr-13 18:02:34

Polly! I have one. She is the only one we know....she suits her name very well.

SilveryMoon Sun 14-Apr-13 18:04:14

I really like the name Molly. I would keep it like that though, Molly.

barbben Sun 14-Apr-13 18:27:44

love polly

nurseneedshelp Sun 14-Apr-13 18:30:59

I've got a molly and a parrot called polly!

nurseneedshelp Sun 14-Apr-13 18:31:45

Oh and got a Holly here for the day too!

Redheadgal Sun 14-Apr-13 19:42:43

Molly reminds me of a dolly. Whereas Polly is just that little bit different. I can really see it working for a little girl, a feisty teen, professional woman etc.

millymae Sun 14-Apr-13 19:48:00

Another vote for Polly, so much nicer than Molly in my opinion.

sarahandemily Sun 14-Apr-13 19:50:22

Molly. Polly is a parrot

Mary - as then you can call her Molly AND Polly, as both started life as nicknames for Mary.

Just an idea!

MummyBurrows Mon 15-Apr-13 12:20:47

Molly. Polly just makes me think of Polly Pocket toys,parrots and that rhyme "polly put the kettle on"! Also,for some reason,I think of dogs when I see Mollie-probably coz it looks like collie-but with an M obvs...xx

I know a cool one and Molly is very popular.

'ie' at the end is name-fiddling to me. However you have already compromised Lily...
