We are hunting for the perfect girl name for our baby due in June and both DH and I like both Holland and Hollis but we can’t decide which we like better.
Other names we are considering in case everyone thinks both Holland and Hollis are awful…Ivy, Delia, Nyla, Ophelia, Ever, Hallie, Fiona

between the two, I like Holland better. I like your other options better though- particularly Ivy, Ophelia, and Fiona

I used to know a girl name Holland (her father’s ode to Heineken, his favorite beer apparently) and I love the name ! And Holly as a NN is lovely IMO. I also really like Fiona !

I actually like Holland as a name a lot. I don’t like Hollis (or names that end in -is in general).

I prefer Hallie to Holland or Hollis.

I like Holland, because it reminds me of the actress Holland taylor and she seems cool. Hollis makes me think of that jerk Hollis Doyle on Scandal.

Also reminded me of Holland Taylor, which I thought was awesome

Hollis has been my girl name for a LONG time and then one of my friends had a girl recently and named her daughter something similar….so now that name is sort of off the table for me. I feel like it’s too unique of a name that something so similar would look like a copy. 🙁
My vote is obviously for Hollis but I like them both!

Why not Holly? The only person I know called Hollis is Hollis Doyle from Scandal (loud, irritating politician based on Trump if you’ve never watched it!)
Of your other choices I like Ivy, Delia, or Ophelia.

There was a guy on the show The Shield named Holland and everybody called him Dutch. Clever nickname I think.
