bit of backstory, my twin sister is pregnant with her third child. She has two boys already- Finley and oscar, she is absolutely desperate for a little girl. She’s only a few weeks a long but has already said she loves the name dolly if she has a little girl this time.
now don’t get me wrong I love my sister she’s my best friend & I love this baby already regardless & will do no matter what she calls it. But I couldn’t help expressing my dismay as I think it’s unfair to call her daughter that- I feel it doesn’t go with my nephews and it’s cute when your a baby but when your a 35 year old trying to make a career for yourself?
I kinda feel like she wants a princess to spoil and this is more about her desperate need for a daughter to dress up & be a really girly girl with.
What do you’s think?

Winterbride_England: I think Dolly is a billion times better than Finley or Oscar (no offense to your sister). I’ve known several grown women named Dolly and it sounds just fine.

First, it’s none of your business unless she specifically asks what you think about the nane.
Second, I like Dolly! I actually have no problem picturing an adult named Dolly in any working position.

My friend’s mother goes by the name Dolly but it’s just a nickname, I believe her real name is Dorothy!

Winterbride_England: I’m trying to comment but WB wont let me and I suspect it’s because of the hyperlink. Google Baby name wizard, it’s a really good tool.

I don’t know why it matter if it goes with the two boy’s names… My aunt had a dog name Dolly so I immediately think of that. After I think of dogs I think of boobs.

Dolly always reminds me of the first cloned sheep and this one particular bitch I used to work with. I do not have good associations with the name and I also think it sounds a little ridiculous. It’s what I used to call my dolls when I was 3 – just sounds like baby-speak to me.

Honest? It’s what I want to name our first lamb, but not a name I would ever give to a human child.

There’s no reason that siblings’ names need to go together.
In saying that, I don’t like Dolly because it’s more of a nickname than a full name.

The celebrity is what comes to my mind, but regardless im not a fan of it. It doesnt matter what we thin though, its your sister and her significant others choice. Sibling names dont need to match, its the one thing that is unique to the individual…thats why Im a hater of people with twins who go matchy matchy lol

First thought: cloned sheep. Second thought: Parton.

Dolly, Finley and Oscar…
Sorry, but my first thought is that she is a painfully upper middle-class Guardian reader who wears organic hemp knickers and makes her own wine.
Not that I have anything against Guardian readers, per se… it’s just a bit of a stereotype, that’s all…

Dolly is a family name on my mothers side, so I am used to hearing it/seeing it on things. I think it is fine for a name, it isn’t any more out there than some of the weird ones people come up with these days. At least it is pretty fool proof on the pronunciation and spelling!
