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!

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).

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

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

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

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

Oh and got a Holly here for the day too!

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.

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

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

Just an idea!

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...
