    Ollie?

    My husband and I both like the name Ollie but hate Oliver. Im just not quite convinced Ollie could stand alone as an official given name. What do others think of just Ollie? Or what other names could be shortened to Ollie?

    Personally I would steer away from Ollie purely because it is so very popular right now. I know four Ollies (all Olivers) all 4 years old or under, just in my circle of friends and not counting other Ollies I have come across at preschool/swimming lessons etc.

    The only other name that comes to mind that could be shortened is Tolliver.
    Fave names: Astrid, Anise, Annika, Cleo, Gabrielle, Holly, Marnie, Mardi, Miranda, Miriam, Poppy, Sydney

    I'm from Australia, so when I'm referring to popularity I'm using Aussie lists.

    I don't like Ollie as a stand alone name. It's just seems way to cutsey on a grown man like a lawyer or something. I like Tolliver as it's familiar sounds but unique also.

    How about:

    Olander
    Olbert
    Olis
    Ollin
    Crisol
    Erol

    I have a son named Oliver, so obviously I love that name. We sometimes call him Ollie, and that's how I prefer it - as a nickname. But if you don't like Oliver, what about Olivander?

    Oliver is a cute name. It's quite popular where I live but I still love it. Ollie feels exactly like to much of a nickname imo.

    Do you like Apollo? Olivander is also handsome, I like that suggestion!
