I think this could also be a nickname for Dahlia.

I'm thinking of naming a daughter Dolly after my favorite band, the Goo Goo Dolls. I like Dolly because it's the biggest derivative from the band into a name that I can think of. I really want to have some kind of tribute to the band, I think that's an interesting namesake.

Sounds like a name a kid would give to their baby doll.

I dislike this as a name and a nickname. It's cutesy in the wrong kind of way. And it's soooo country.

Very, very ditzy-sounding. The association with Dolly Parton also gives it a country vibe, as in "living in the backwoods of Kentucky" kind of vibe.

I used to get beat up because of this name, made me tough. Now the boys are real nice to me. For some reason men like this name... I Don't Know.

Dolly was the name of the first cloned sheep and the first clone of an adult animal. The scientists named her after Dolly Parton. After her death, she was stuffed. You can see her in the Scottish National Museum.

My friend's name is Dolores and we call her Dolly. She spells her nickname Doli. Dolly and Doli are pronounced the same.

This name would be quite pretty if it wasn't a type of toy.

I love Dolly -- not as a given name, but as a nickname for Dorothy! Like Sally, it can be a pleasing surprise.

You'd have to be a very cool person to pull this off, and the name sounds hopelessly old-fashioned, somewhat infantile, and quite ditzy.

Darya "Dolly" Schterbatskya was a character in Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina". I think this name is a bad name, but a cute nickname that should stop being used once the child reaches age 8 or so.

Dolly Levi is the title character of the Broadway musical "Hello Dolly!" She's a lively, independent, romantic and downright charming woman. In 1969, Barbra Streisand played Dolly Levi in the movie adaption.

One of the many nicknames of Dolores Haze (Lolita). Also the little girl in the comic strip Family Circus.

Sounds sweet, but too soft. No thanks, I prefer Dolores.

It is the most horrible name for a girl on this earth! Do not name your daughter Dolly. It stinks.
