Holloway Origin and Meaning

The name Holloway is a boy's name meaning "hollow way, sunken path".

Holloway is a habitational surname, meaning if this is a last name on your family tree, your ancestors once lived in an English town by the name. As a first name, it's relatively undiscovered — Holloway charted for the first time in 2020, and only for girls. It would work well on a child of either sex, although the intuitive Holly nickname will likely keep the distribution skewed toward the feminine.
