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.

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!

I prefer Polly as it's more unusual.

Mollie. Beautiful.

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.
