    Polly

    Could I please have some opinions on the name Polly? Although its a tad nicknamey, I think its sweet and I like how it sounds with Amelie and Daisy. I'm not sure what name it could be short for, or if there is a longer version? The only one that comes to mind is Pollyanna but I think its a bit too twee!

    I'm not pregnant, just collecting names.

    Thanks in advance x


    Mama to Amelie Clara (2008) & Daisy Madeline (2013).

    Alice Tallulah, Polly Matilda, Rosalie Faye, Lucy Annabel, Maya Lillian, Hazel Kate, Eva Blossom, Juliet Lila, Ivy Camille.
    Charles Joshua "Charlie", Theodore Samuel "Teddy", Elliott Daniel, Noah Zachary, James Oscar, Arthur Philip, Rowan Isaac.

    Meh, I've never been fond of the -olly names, really. Molly, Polly, Lolly... Holly is okay, but they all seem rather bland and boring, and Polly still sounds really dated to me. I don't see the cute factor to it. I do sort of like Paulina, though, and I think Polly could be a nn for that. Or even Penelope.

    I adore Polly! It's on my long list. Polly is spunky, sprightly, and more sophisticated than sister name Molly. Truly an undiscovered gem.

    I really like Polly! It goes great with your girls' names. At one point I had Pomeline nn Polly on my list, so that's my first thought. I also second Ash's suggestions of Pauline/a and Penelope.
