Personal experiences with the name Hollie

My name is Hollie and I love it. The only problem is that people often use the original spelling (Holly) by mistake. Oh and, of course, I have to put up with all the usual jokes. Is your sister called Ivy? No, she's called Fern, actually. Were you born at Christmas? Nope...October!

Hi I am called Hollie too! I personally do not like my name. I find that everyone assumes I was born at Christmas when infact I was born in June. I hate that it sounds like an old lady name too!
