HollyThis name reminds me of Christmas, my favorite holiday. Also, it is a very cute, fun-loving name.
Holly, taken from the name of the evergreen plant has been in use as a name since at the early 20th century. It was often given to babies born around Christmas. Holly, due to its evergreen leaves, was a traditional pagan symbol of renewal of life in the deep winter. As such it was also applied to Christmas. Ivy is another plant which has been associated with Christmas for the same reasons.
