I am expecting DC2 and my DH and I have struggled to agree on names. For a girl he has recently mentioned Polly. I like it but I worry that people might think it is a bit cutsie. What do other people think?

I like it.

I like it as well.

I hate it.

Not so much cutesy as prissy and unpleasant sounding.

It's pretty not cutsie.
I like it.

I like it too. I only know one-must be mid 30s. Haven't seen her for years but she was an intelligent and driven woman. Go for it! grin

I like it. I had a school friend whose very cool big sister was called Polly. Her and PJ Harvey make it a good name to me.

I knew a great Polly at university, I like it but you'll never get 100% approval on it

I like it.

To cutesy for me, sorry.

I like it - although it is similar, for some reason I don't think it is as cutesy as Millie, Tilly, Lilly, Poppy, Molly etc...

Go for it!

I like it, don't think it's cutesy at all. It used to be a NN for Margaret or Mary I think (don't know why).

CrispyFern Wed 30-Apr-14 06:54:43

It's Ok.

Bonsoir Wed 30-Apr-14 06:54:51

I know a Polly, short for Olivia.

MrsBungle Wed 30-Apr-14 06:56:39

It's a bit cutesy to me but I still quite like it.

ChickenMe Wed 30-Apr-14 09:23:45

Love it. Classic name.

My dd is a Polly. The only problem is that people constantly mishear it as either Holly or Poppy on first meeting, which she finds a bit irritating. One of her TAs is still calling her Poppy on occasion now, grrr!
