Due with a baby girl on Dec 23rd what do people think of the name Holly or is it too popular for xmas babies

Arabellasmella Tue 28-Aug-12 14:36:47

I very much like Holly. I am a bit put off by the christmas thing though like it's a bit sort of twee, even though it's not. It's veyr pretty though. I know a grown up Holly and she is gorgeous.

Love it!! I'm not sure as mine is a christmas baby but know lots that are not. smile

Don't like it. Or the Christmas association.

I like it. I know a few Holly's and one Hollie (which I prefer), but it does seem a tad cliche to use it on a winter baby.

However, your baby, your choice.

Lovely name smile Very nice for a Christmas baby or any other time of year.

It's lovely and I don't think the Christmas connection should put you off at all! I love the name Noelle but feel that I could only use it for a Christmas dd.

I really like Holly actually. Nice classy name.

onedev Wed 29-Aug-12 19:09:54

I think it's a lovely name but very popular.

DawnOfTheDee Wed 29-Aug-12 19:11:27

Lovely name. It is quite popular though and even more so around Christmas (as you'd expect!)

ClaraDeLaNoche Wed 29-Aug-12 19:12:09

It's a beautiful name.

chrisdriver Wed 29-Aug-12 19:12:31

Love it. Ours is 10, and like every other one we've ever known, gorgeous. She's July though...and we are constantly asked if she was a Christmas baby. I sometimes think I'll just say yes next time. grin

My DSis is Holly, I love her name envy because mine is boring and was very popular the year I was born.

mrsbugsywugsy Wed 29-Aug-12 19:16:24

I like it, I know a lovely Holly so perhaps I am biased

HaveALittleFaith Wed 29-Aug-12 19:24:02

I really like it.

Cleo123 Wed 29-Aug-12 21:44:16

Gorgeous name for any time of the year. holly is evergreen so fine for anytime of year but berries come out autumn to spring which is why the Xmas association etc.

I really love Holly its gorgeous and prefer it to the Hollie spelling.

Dominodonkey Fri 31-Aug-12 20:19:00

Very popular - but I have never met a nasty one!

Marne Fri 31-Aug-12 20:21:48

I have a Holly and she is the only Holly in her school, she wasn't a xmas baby (we jest loved the name), its a very pretty name (shame dd1 is a tom boy).

poorfoxyloxy Fri 31-Aug-12 20:22:13

I named my daughter Holly, born in May, when Holly flowers. (I only found that out after!) Do get asked if she's a christmas baby a lot though, but that doesn't really bother me.

Flosie1989 Fri 31-Aug-12 21:10:55

I like Holly but prefer it spelt as Hollie plus it will stop the Christmas association. smile

EllenParsons Mon 03-Sep-12 00:09:18

I think it's lovely, whatever the time of year. Really pretty name.

administrator Mon 03-Sep-12 00:12:30

I have a Holly, born in May too! I think it's a beautiful name (like my beautiful DD) and I only know one other.

Whatevertheweather Mon 03-Sep-12 00:17:48

I love the name Holly!

Although I may be biased - I have my nearly 3 week old August born Holly Elizabeth snuggled up on me at the moment! Must say this thread has cheered me up smile
