Baby Names

So the drug is not slowing down the "Molly's"

???
It seems like we've got about 5 Molly's in the last couple pages.
It wouldn't influence me if I was going for that name, but I guess I just thought that naming your baby alongside the most popular street drug might be an UO.
Guess not;)

  • Wait... what drug? My name is Molly and I've never gotten any drug references or side-eyes over it.

  • It's the "newest" drug fad. From what I understand its just heroine being remarketed to the kids.
    Google it.
    Local newscasters across the country are going crazy to scare parents all about it.

    I never knew your name was Molly!! Like Molly Weasley :)

    And I don't think of drugs, I think of a classic name that has been used for centuries.

    There's a drug nicknamed "Molly" for the molecular form of the drug that some know as "x" or "Ecstasy."

    It's probably a flash in the pan trend right now.  I wouldn't worry about it.

  • Yep, ecstasy. That's right! I miss spoke.

    I think if you are not in the drug world it probably doesn't play in your decision. I love the name Molly and a street drug fad wouldn't stop me from using it. Just like the name Crystal doesn't make me think of meth first. That is just not where my mind goes. 
    I must watch too much Breaking Bad because Crystal automatically makes me think of meth now lol.

  • Molly might grow in popularity and thus effect the name. 15 years ago, I don't think I had heard of meth and now I know so much that I'd accept nothing but the finest blue ;)

  • I've never heard of this, though I don't know any slang names for any drugs ::shrugs::.

  • "Molly" as drug slang has been in use for years.  It's not something new.  And it's part of a subculture that doesn't affect the world at large and probably won't have any influence on the name Molly which has been in use for far longer.

    "John" has been well known slang for a toilet for much longer, and I don't see that name dropping in popularity. 
    Yeah, and "Charlie" is a pretty common slang for cocaine. I wouldn't be worried about it. Unless you were pretty entrenched in rave culture no one's going to think it.

  • Lots of names can be nicknames for drugs. What about Mary Jane?

  • Like others said, Molly is nothing new.  I just think because of Miley's song, it's in the forefront. I also think that will pass. I wouldn't hesitate to use Molly because of it, I think it's a beautiful name.

    I think it's far beyond the "drug world," I've heard at least 3 shows on the subject of Molly on NPR in the past month or so.

    The name is creeping up to Mary Jane status in my mind - lovely, but if I saw a little girl with that name Id assume her parents are stoners.

    I think of Mary Jane from Spider-Man, so I'd assume they liked the comics/movies.

    You can tell that my head is far from drugs haha

    Yeah unfortunately Miley Cyrus is ruining yet another thing. But I actually think of the American Girl doll back when were the best and from historical periods. I personally had a Samatha but I know a lot of people had Molly's.
  • If anyone knew me at all they'd know if we ended up naming our daughter Mary Jane with the nickname Molly it would have nothing to do with the drug. I'd almost have people assume that than thinking I'm uneducated and naming my kid Brixxleeelyn.

  • I would not think of drugs when I hear Molly. I had no idea that was a thing, granted I also have never heard of Charlie for cocaine. Guess I'm just out out of the loop.
