Heard an interesting name today at storytime....

Hollis. (boy)

t first I was like WTH, but actually I kinda like it. It really "fit" that family, KWIM?

  • i know a woman named Hollis (in her mid 30's) It really suits her and I like it a lot. I don't think of it as a boy's name, though.

    There's a character on HBO's Big Love named Hollis Green -- so aside from the creepy polygamist connection, I like the name.
  • Loading the player...
  • I think its an awful name personally.  Hollis? Ugh.

    It reminds me of the clothing store Hollister. I'm not a fan.?
  •  I like it foe a girl, not for a boy
  • It's my nephew's middle name - it's a family name. 
  • I had a friend in high school named Hollis.  It suited her quite well.  I'm having trouble picturing it for a boy, but if I knew a male Hollis I'm sure it would make more sense.  I think it's a pretty cool name. 
  • I know of a baby girl Hollis....I think of Holly immediately.

    I like Hollis though-more modern than Holly.

  • I have heard it once before and really like it. I wouldn't consider it because we live near a town named Hollis.

  • I think of the Run DMC song "Christmas in Hollis."

    Which is fun.

    There's an adolescent book called Pictures of Hollis Woods and Hollis is a girl. I think it's cute :o)

  • I know a Hollis (a 50+ year old man) and I love the name.  I suggested it to my DH, but he vetoed.  I think it's just cool, though.
