    Opinions on Joely

    Hi!
    What do you think of the name Joely? It can also be spelt Jolie, but I think that spelling is too connected with Angelina Jolie. Angelina's surname is said faster and with the emphasis on the LEE rather than Joely/Jolie which is JOE-lee rather than joe-LEE (you know what I mean!)
    I think it's really pretty, especially as it means pretty in French. I know the cutest little girl called Joely
    What do you think?
    Thanks,
    Ellie xx

    Never heard of it. Strikes me as a weird feminization of the name, Joel. Jolie means pretty, not Joely. Changing the spelling of a word name so that it's no longer that word, makes it lose the meaning.
    Having fun TTC and dreaming of names.

    My best friend from when we were very young is named Joely, but spelled differently. It's also more JOEL-ee rather than Joe-lee if that makes sense. She's always had trouble with people pronouncing/spelling it but I don't think it's ever bothered her too much. She seems to really love her name and the originality of it.

    Joely does look like a feminization of Joel. The spelling Jolie is much prettier anyway. It sounds nice, and has a nice meaning, but it's too reminiscent of Angelina Jolie for me to ever consider it. Plus, it's not really my style. I think it could work for someone else, though. Definitely use the original spelling if you do.
