Holly/Hollie Rose

What are people's opinion?

Better with a Y.

Rose is a dull as dishwater middle name.

Too much plant in one name for me.

Very nice,

Holly not Hollie

Awful with Rose unless you are a family of garden fairies or similar.

Holly is nice. Hollie is weird.

Giving two plant names at once is unfortunate though.

I'd go with Holly. Nothing wrong with Rose as a middle name IMO, its not as if middle names actually get used in every day life anyway. If you were planning to hyphenate Holly-Rose as a first name I'd say no.

I prefer Holly

Holly-with-a-y is a better spelling. Not my sort of name though, too twee if she is going to be a Christmas baby.

And not paired with another plant name. Just overkill.

I wouldn't use two plant names together, I also feel that Rose, though pretty enough, is just too overused as a middle name.

Though Holly Rose is better than Holly Ivy.

Holly definitely - why make it harder her having to correct spelling of her name forever?

Holly Rose sounds nice, but another not keen on the double plant! How about Rosa? Or Niamh, Charlotte, Isobel?
