I quite like it, but prefer Poppy, yet I'm undecided if they pass the 'solicitor' test?!

There's Polly Toynbee, so I think it does pass the solicitor test (well, she's a journalist, but you know what I mean).

In Milly Molly Mandy the mother is called Polly although her name is Mary for some unfathomable reason. Along the lines of Peggy being short for Margaret I suppose.

I love Polly, don't know any. WOuld use it in a heartbeat if dh liked it.
You also have the most wonderful PJ Harvey as a kick ass name sake.

I like it. I know an adult Polly who is a doctor, so no limits at all! One of my mums friends has it as a nn for Pauline, she is a uni lecturer. All the nursery rhymes with it in are quite sweet and not nasty, also Polly Parrot on Peppa is one of DDs favourites!

I don't know why, as my best friend growing up was called Polly, but I don't like it. It just sounds silly to me.

I don't like it much, I'm afraid. But then I don't like Polly/Poppy/Archie/Alfie cutesy names that seem quite 'trendy' at the moment.

I prefer more 'substantial' and elegant names personally. But thankfully we all have different tastes. Choose the name YOU love.
