Lolly was slang for money back in the day.

Burglars in stripey tops: "'Ave you got the lolly?" etc. etc.

SIL is Laura, known as Lolly. Would presume that or Lauren/Lorraine.

This is my MIL's nickname. She goes by Lol or Lolly. And her full name is Lauretta. Wish I'd claimed it myself as my name is one of the ones being listed above and it's much better than my own dull nickname!

Loretta or Lorraine

Louise. Dsd1's friend is a Louise known as Lolly. I'd never heard it as a nn before, but quite like it.

I know a Lollie. For some unknown reason her loving parents announced that this was the abbreviated version of her full name...

wait for it...

Honor confused

My dd often gets called Lollylou, or Lolly. Do get some hmm faces in the park when I use her nn, so feel compelled to then loudly use her real name!

One of my DGFs was nicknamed Billy by his SIL (short for Albert) and the other was known as Dick (William?!) so I'm guessing Lollie is short for Kayden... grin

My husband really like the name Lollie but I do not want people to assume it is a shortened version of Louise as have a very bad experience associated with that name. DH said people would not assume it was short for anything but I disagree. I just don;t want to be faced on a regular basis with the question ... is that short for Louise.

Tell him you can't call a child Lollie because one day she will be a grown up.

Laurna or Charlotte
