Not short for anything

As stand alone names, I prefer Harry.

I also think Ollie looks nicer than Olly.

Oli (I have an Oliver) who shortens to Oli

I like Ollie as a nickname for Oliver as PP.

Harry vs just Olly? Harry. However it is an incredibly popular name. Depends if that would bother you though.

Why on earth just Olly? confused

Harry. However, if it was Oliver vs Harry Oliver would win. And Olly is a cute nnsmile

Just thought about it again. Olly is actually really cute. smile

Harry. It looks finished and I really like it. Not a fan of Ollie but I love Oliver.

Both lovely but I do prefer Ollie to Olly

Can't it be Oliver? So much nicer than both Harry or Olly but you could still use Olly (or Ollie - much nicer) as a nn.

Harry is far to overused in my area.

What list? confused

It's still naff anyway.

Oliver is great though smile

The list of how many babies born with that name.

No, it can't be Oliver!

It seems like Harry wins as a stand alone name, so thanks smile

Don't like either but out of the two. I'd choose Harry.

Harry is lovely! Maybe it's just me but Olly reminds me of Murs? (But unless Olly Murs's career is really unpredictably stratospheric that won't affect your boy!)

Don't like either, but Harry is very very popular
