My name is Holly Marie Taylor. Similar to the other postings. (ka-wink-a-dink) My mom's middle name is Marie, so she just carried it down. But, I can say Holly is a unique name. I've only met one other Holly in my life....way back in grade school (15 years ago). I never liked it, but a lot of people don't like things about themselves.

I thought I'd add a twist to the name Holly and name my daughter Hollynn Kathleen... I think it is beautiful, but people still try and say her first name as 2 words! It's not Holly Lynn its one word Hollynn

My middle name is Robin, as a kid I was Holly-Robin. Now its just Holly. My middle name came from my father is is his first name, and I am his first born.
Hollywood- it has to be a good name if they named a place where famous people live after it!

My name is Holly Marie. It seems to be a name that will never go out of style. I have met Hollys of all ages, older and younger than myself. I still see people naming their newborns Holly. It's a common known name yet different enough that you don't meet too many of us. The only time I bothered by my name is when someone asks me if I was born at Christmas time (which I was not) and then proceed to tell me about their beloved dog they named Holly because they got it as a Christmas gift! I'm never quite sure how to take that!

can't get away from H
written by Holly Helen Hanaway, September 06, 2010
When I was born I was named after a character on general hospital and my middle was after my late grandmother. So I was then named Holly Helen Hanaway and next wouldn't you know, I find a husband with the last name Harrison. So again I say I can't get away from the H's.
