Hello, Dolly! Okay, we couldn't resist, but be warned: Most people who meet your little Dolly won't be able to either. This nickname-name, rarely heard since whatever decade Dolly Parton was born, is singing a fashionable note again along with sisters Dottie and Dixie; it was recently chosen for one of their twin girls by Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell.
Dolly was a Top 300 name around the turn of the last century. The fourth First Lady of the United States spelled her name variously as Dolly and Dolley Madison.
