I love Hollister (which I shop at) and Pictures of Hollis Woods (which I read)! But anyway, I love this name. Actually once I read Pictures of Hollis Woods I really liked it. I love this!

Hollis is a character from An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. She's the mother of Lindsay, who Colin later falls in love with after a procession of 19 Katherines. It's a good book; you should really read it.

I think Hollis is a lovely, dignified name. The one downside: Hollister, an overpriced clothing store an earlier poster mentioned, comes to mind whenever I hear "Hollis." I'm not a huge fan of the store, so it ruins an otherwise perfect name.

I love Hollister, but the name Hollis is not my style.

You may remember this name from the 1974 film, 'Chinatown': Hollis Mulwray was Faye Dunaway's character's husband, the chief engineer of the Los Angeles DWP who was murdered for knowing too much. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinatown_(1974_film)

Hollis sounds unattractive to me, more suited to a middle-aged or elderly person. Holly would make a good nickname or alternative.

This is my 16 year old son's name. People seem to really like it, and the name does suit him as he is very unique. I love that this name is different yet legitimate, and is in no danger of becoming ubertrendy. We have never met another Hollis in person, but we've "heard" of a few others. The gender split seems to be half and half. Sometimes people have mistaken the name for "Thomas" or "Horace" but, surprisingly, not very often. I think that's because it's such a simple name.

I like this name, it's really cool and unique! But only for a boy... It doesn't seem very feminine to me. It actually didn't remind me of Hollister at all until you guys mentioned it.

Very unique without being trendy or plain ugly. I didn't even think of Hollister until I read the comments.

Hollis "Holly" Flax is a character on the NBC sitcom The Office, played by Amy Ryan.

I am named Hollis and it is a wonderful name to bare. As a child I wanted the most common name I could possibly imagine but I grew into a confident person who loves that it's unique... I mean how many Matts do YOU know... right?!

One thing for the record: this is NOT Hollister. Look at it, there is absolutely no TER. Two different words. Just sayin.

I love this name and I am surprised it is not more popular! Definitely character name material.

This is my husband's middle name and we are giving it to our son/daughter as a middle name when she/he is born in May. We both love it and it's family history!

I think this name is nice for a girl. Could call her Holly for a nickname.
