    Wally for a little lady?

    So maybe this is crazy, but I just LOVE sound of the name Wally. I know we attach it to boys usually, but if you just say it in your head, eyes closed... hmm.

    I see another poster was looking to arrive at the nickname Wellie, which made me think of Wally!

    There’s Molly, Polly, Holly...? Why not Wally?!

    Honest opinions please! <3

    Maybe it's because I'm not a big fan of Wally in general (where I am it's a word used sometimes to describe someone being silly or foolish) and thus not the best judge, but I'm not sure on it.
    As a nickname I think i could get behind it though

    Makes me think of the phrase "wally-eyed" and of the Wall-E movie. So maybe not by itself, but I could see it being used as a nickname for Wallace or Wallis, which have been used as female names before. Since their both vintage and masculine they feel ahead of trend.

    I don't love it by itself- But as a previous poster said I'm not a fan of the name for either gender, however I think it could work nicely as a nickname if you brainstormed a full name. It reminds me of the Wall-E movie, again, like someone else said.
    names; they are so sweet; such an important sound that may be understood in any language. ♡ teenberry, 16 ♡

    Makes me think of Wallis Simpson who went by Wally. Logically, with Polly, Molly, Sally, Lily, etc, Wally should work on it's own but I still prefer it as a nickname for Wallis.
