Either. They are both beautiful names, personally would go for Holly out of the two as had a dolly called Holly when I was little xx

Holly is more classic.

Out of the two I definitely prefer Holly.

I'm not a fan of Lola at all.

I like both but think that I would go for Holly for a DD. Lola sounds a bit "Showgirl".

I had a dog called Lola. Also the lyrics of the song are actually quite disturbing! Holly lovely :-)

I am surprised when people choose Lola, personally <due to song by the Kinks>, but perhaps they don't the song.
so between the two, I would go with Holly

Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl
But that was 30 years ago, when they used to have a show
Now it's a disco, but not for Lola
Still in the dress she used to wear, faded feathers in her hair
She sits there so refined, and drinks herself half-blind
She lost her youth and she lost her Tony
Now she's lost her mind!

At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)

Well I'm not the world's most masculine man
But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man
And so is Lola

Holly but I am biased as dd is Holly!

I love Lola-known lots of lovely Spanish girls called Lola and they weren't worried about Barry Manilow!
Holly is nice too-more classic, but just as popular.
I know 3 Hollys and 4 Lolas in dd's year (age 8).

Holly definitely, we chose Holly but has a boy ANSI don't think he would've appreciated it! Also liked Emily smile

Holly, definitely. More classic. Lola is pretty, can see why your DH likes it. I can't really see it on a grown up woman though.

LarkinSky Tue 16-Jul-13 19:22:03

I like Holly best, I'm afraid I often think Lola is a showgirl or the 21st century equivalent, an 'adult entertainer'. Though I know a lovely little girl called Lola and certainly don't think that of her! How about Lara?

Lola,I think showgirl.copacabana
Holly it's a bit twee and ditzy
If had to chose I'd pick holly ESP if Xmas baby
