I call my friend Ollie and her name is Olivia. It sounds more of a nickname but it's still an okay name.

Three words: IS GON RAIN (catch-phrase from Family Guy character Ollie Williams)

Such an adorable nickname! I wouldn't name my child this, but I wouldn't hesitate to use it as a nickname for an 'Oliver'.

More of a masculine sounding name to me.

Ollie Herdman was a character in the book "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" which was also made into a movie.

Never a fullname-- forever the ranks of a nickname. Having said that, it truly does seem more masculine ("Oliver") than feminine ("Olivia"/"Olive"). But it is not a diminutive that I see myself ever putting to use. "Ollie"... there is something about the spoken sound that is horribly off, in my ears and eyes. It also appears to be more of a "husband/wife" nickname, not a child's. Meaning, a wife calling her husband "Ollie."

This was the name of my cocker spaniel, who was euthanized just two days ago long before he should have died. Poor baby :(

Could be a nickname for mollie, although that doesn't really need a nickname, and you'd only be taking off one letter :P.

I've seen it written with a Y at the end, as in "Olly Murs", the artist of "Troublemaker". There's also a little kid in my school named Olly.

Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong's mother is named Ollie. In her case it's her actual given name (not short for anything).
