Longer names for Dolly could be Donelle, Donella, Donalda and Donaldina.
Gwendolyn, Gwendolen and Gwendoline could be longer names.
Love this name as a nickname, but I would never use it. When I think of this name, I think of Dolly Parton.
I hate it. It does not age well! I can only see it on kids!
I've always thought this name is childish too. It might be fine to use on a mythical creature in a novel, but sounds weird on a real person. A similar-looking name, Molly, is much better.
It’s cute! It’s old-fashioned in a very good way. It reminds me of some people like the 4th President’s wife (but her name had an “e” in it). Her name was Dolley Madison.
Dolly is the name of Johny's sister in the youtube kids' channel "Billion Surprise Toys". I must say, I'm a bit surprised that they named Johny's sister Dolly.
Dolly Rebecca Parton is a beloved country music star from Locust Ridge, Tennessee.
I always get that I don't look like a Dolly... So I ask what does a Dolly look like...and the answer is me!...only because my name is Dolly...I like my name more now than when I was younger... And what's crazy is my daughter's name is Joelene...and it wasn't done on purpose...LOL!
Rather baby-ish.
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.
The name Dolly was given to 30 girls born in the US in 2015.
Dolly Varden is a character in Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens.
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 is such a cute name! :3.
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.
This can also be short for Dolores.
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.
Sounds overly-tacky and cheap - thumbs down.
Very great name for a sheep.
One of the many nicknames of Dolores Haze (Lolita). Also the little girl in the comic strip Family Circus.
Great name for sheep.
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.
