I think we have decided on Mollie, but would like to get opinions first!

Madbengalmum Sun 06-Nov-16 20:36:37

Dislike, sorry.

Dislike. Molly is better but still ick.

It's a nice name but I'd spell it Molly otherwise she will spend her life correcting people.

Molly is better.

I have a Molly

Obviously I love it

Sophronia Sun 06-Nov-16 20:38:15

I prefer Molly

Love Mollie, and infinitely prefer the Mollie spelling to Molly. I think Mollie will age better than Molly. If we had had a girl, she would probably have been a Mollie.

Oh, all the Mollies I've met have been Mollie...

I prefer molly although I think it is way to cutsie. In spite of my own name rhyming with it!

RiverTam Sun 06-Nov-16 20:40:19

Very old fashioned. Popular round here, there were 3 (all spelt Molly) in DD's nursery class.

I really like Molly! But not so much Mollie.

katiegg Sun 06-Nov-16 20:41:04

OP I wonder if this is a regional thing? There were similar posts a few days ago about Hollie vs Holly. Again, I prefer the -ie spelling but most others didn't.

Until recently, all the Mollies I have met have been -ie spellings. Only the very young ones are spelt with a y.

DD1 is Hollie and I much prefer the -ie spelling for female names in general (a few exceptions obviously). They are both legitimate spellings. I don't think they are cutesy (whatever that means). I don't know many young ones though (all 20+).

If you copy this into your browser:,Molly,Mollie

You can see the popularity of Mollie/Molly over the last 100 years. They both entered the top 100 around the same time but Molly with a Y has always been the more popular version.

Love Mollie. smile

I have a Molly and she is almost 15. She has started spelling her name Mollie angry

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 06-Nov-16 21:17:05

I like Molly.

DramaAlpaca Sun 06-Nov-16 21:19:24

Too cutesy for me, sorry.

SpeckledyBanana Sun 06-Nov-16 21:21:44

The only Molly I know is a labrador. It will forever be a dog's name for me, unfortunately.

Goes with all the other Tilly Milly Billy Dolly Maddie Holly - very similar and very popular - dates
