    I am the minority who didn't think of parrots at all, haha. Instead I thought of the nursery rhyme, 'Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick...'

    I don't think it's bad at all, I do like Molly slightly more though

    Technically I like Polly. It is spunky and sassy and has a good dollop of charm. I have a bad association with one though, so I just think of her. Obviously, you don't have this problem, so I think it would make a good addition to your list. I don't like Pollyanna though, as it is an alternative term for a Mary Sue.

    Polly is pretty well established for parrots, and I'd be offended to be called Pollyanna, so I certainly wouldn't subject a female child to a life of never being taken seriously.

    Polly is an endearing vintage nickname-name that deserves to be loved and used.

    I wish I could undo it's "Polly-want-a-cracker" association with parrots.

    I'm missing something here, what exactly is offensive about Pollyanna?....I just like it for the connection to Hayley Mills, (who I was named after), and I've never ever heard of it outside of the book, but it ranks in the UK top 1000.
