Full names for Molly?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] everyone!
I love [name_f]Molly[/name_f], and lately I’ve been wondering if there are any full names for it, aside from [name_f]Mary[/name_f].
What can you guys think of?

I like [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] “Molly” as stretchy nicknames, but I’m trying to think of some others.

Thank you!!

[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] and [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] are a bit of a stretch. I think maybe [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] could be an option

I don’t like [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] as it feels very harsh. How about [name_f]Margot[/name_f]?

I think [name_f]Margot[/name_f] works! I’m also partial to [name_f]Marguerite[/name_f] 🫶🏼

[name_f]Margot[/name_f] could work,

[name_f]Emily[/name_f]? [name_f]Millie[/name_f] might be more intuitive, but [name_f]Molly[/name_f] still could work.

[name_f]Amalia[/name_f] (uh-MAW-lee-uh)
[name_f]Malia[/name_f] (mah-LEE-uh)
[name_u]Mallory[/name_u]
[name_f]Melody[/name_f]

Maybe [name_f]Melissa[/name_f]?

If you like Amelia, Amalia seems pretty perfect!
And really I feel like any ‘mary’ name would work as well (aka Marian, Marilyn, Maren etc.) This iant a a ‘Mary’ name but Malin would also work well!

[name_f]Amalia[/name_f]
[name_u]Mallory[/name_u]
[name_u]Romilly[/name_u]
[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] (maybe?)
[name_f]Melody[/name_f]
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f]
[name_f]Emmanuella[/name_f]
[name_f]Margalita[/name_f]
[name_f]Marisol[/name_f]
[name_f]Mozelle[/name_f]
[name_u]Maria[/name_u] [name_f]Dolores[/name_f]
Marie-Noelle
[name_f]Marilla[/name_f]

I like [name_f]Molly[/name_f] on it’s own!!

[name_m]Just[/name_m] choose [name_f]Molly[/name_f]. It’s now a name in it’s own right and has been for centuries.

I was thinking so!
It’s a name I love but I’m worried if the future daughter would worry about not having a fuller, formal name.
Like [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] “Kate” or [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] “Josie”
You make a good point - there aren’t really proper full forms for [name_f]Molly[/name_f] - it would be best to use on it’s own.

I just thought of [name_f]Amaryllis[/name_f], since it has [name_f]Mary[/name_f] in it, I think [name_f]Molly[/name_f] could work. it might be to much of a stretch though

Though you don’t prefer [name_f]Margaret[/name_f], you could start looking there to find a more passable derivative, since [name_f]Molly[/name_f] is an acceptable nn for [name_f]Margaret[/name_f].

@coolauntieviolet love the stretchy Amaryllis>Mary>Molly connection!

[name_f]Paloma[/name_f]
[name_f]Philomena[/name_f]
[name_f]Jamilla[/name_f]
[name_u]Camille[/name_u] / [name_f]Camila[/name_f]
[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Malia[/name_f]
[name_f]Kimora[/name_f]
[name_u]Simone[/name_u]
[name_f]Amalia[/name_f]

I love [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f], but also [name_f]Maureen[/name_f], [name_u]Malin[/name_u] & [name_f]Malka[/name_f]!

Perhaps a first name [name_u]Mo[/name_u]- and middle name [name_m]Ly[/name_m]-

[name_f]Moira[/name_f] [name_u]Lyric[/name_u]
[name_f]Monica[/name_f] [name_f]Lynette[/name_f]
[name_u]Morgan[/name_u] [name_f]Lyla[/name_f]
etc

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Olive[/name_f] nn [name_f]Molly[/name_f] would be amazing!

[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] “Molly” is my personal favorite! It’s a bit stretchy but I think it works :smiling_face:

edit: I also know a [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Elaine[/name_f] (fn + mn, not a double barrel) who goes by [name_f]Molly[/name_f] so I think any [name_f]Mary[/name_f] variant + a MN with an L in it works!
