My DP and I disagree on most names but both love this one. Just curious what people thought of it really!

It's awful.

calzone Sat 26-Sep-15 09:10:52

Truly truly awful.

I cannot think how this is cute or sensible and I would not want to be called it myself.

Wolfiefan Sat 26-Sep-15 09:10:57

Um no. I read the thread title as asking what holiday was suitable for a girl!

BondGate Sat 26-Sep-15 09:11:52

Not a fan, sorry.

When I read the thread title, my first thought was that you were looking for suggestions of good places to take a baby on holiday, and had misspelt holiday and put the thread in the wrong section by mistake.

And the comments over her life will be tiring......

Me too Wolfie!

Hmm! Thats interesting that it's had a strong negative reaction. I had had it back of my mind for a while then saw an actress recently called it and thought it was simple and sweet.

Arkkorox Sat 26-Sep-15 09:17:42

No. It's horrible

SlowlyGoingINSAINIA Sat 26-Sep-15 09:20:05

It's awful.

manicinsomniac Sat 26-Sep-15 09:20:09

It has a pretty sound and it's quite sweet.

But I definitely wouldn't do it.

Twooter Sat 26-Sep-15 09:25:03

No from me

At least holly would be a good nn...

AuntieStella Sat 26-Sep-15 09:43:23

I don't like it. But I'm not wild even about established surnamey names, let alone ones used as one-off stage names.

And think it sounds like a Bond girl. The sister of Christmas Jones perhaps.

Spidertracker Sat 26-Sep-15 09:46:11

Do you not like just Holly, its most likely that is what she will end up being called anyway.
It just doesn't seem like a first name.

Costacoffeeplease Sat 26-Sep-15 09:51:05

It just doesn't seem like a first name.

Maybe because it's not

I've seen some corkers on this board, but jeez

Spartak Sat 26-Sep-15 09:53:42

Why not? If your next child is a boy he can be Hollibob.

GoldPlatedShitGibbon Sat 26-Sep-15 09:53:54

Holliday Grainger is fab.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sat 26-Sep-15 10:17:53

Is a no from me, sorry

mrsschu Sat 26-Sep-15 10:22:30

It's ridiculous frankly. Imagine being a grown woman in a normal job (ie not a Hollywood film star) and having to introduce yourself to people as Holliday?! It sounds like a joke. And it looks like you can't spell. A massive no from me...

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

SmugairleRoin Sat 26-Sep-15 10:46:34

It's terrible. I honestly thought you were asking about places to take a baby.

Vixxfacee Sat 26-Sep-15 10:48:01

There's an actor with a daughter named Holiday. His other daughter is Winter.
