Harriet or Pollyanna

Which name do you prefer? [name_f]Hattie[/name_f] or [name_f]Polly[/name_f] as a nickname.

Both are sweet, but I like [name_f]Harriet[/name_f]/[name_f]Hattie[/name_f] a bit more!

I love the grounded strength of [name_f]Harriet[/name_f]. [name_f]Hattie[/name_f] is great too!

Its undeniably frilly and a little [name_m]OTT[/name_m], but I have to admit that I have a soft for [name_f]Pollyanna[/name_f]. Cute, quirky and eternally youthful. I love [name_f]Polly[/name_f]!

[name_f]Harriet[/name_f]/ [name_f]Hattie[/name_f] :slight_smile:

I’ve never heard of [name_f]Pollyanna[/name_f]! Super cute but to be completely honest, the name [name_f]Polly[/name_f] still makes me think of PollyPocket dolls.

I prefer [name_f]Harriet[/name_f]! [name_f]Hattie[/name_f] is such a sweet nickname as well.

I prefer [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] - it’s one of my favourite names - but I’d love to meet a [name_f]Pollyanna[/name_f] (and just hope the cultural meaning wasn’t annoying for her!).

For the long versions I much prefer [name_f]Harriet[/name_f]. But while [name_f]Hattie[/name_f] is okay I don’t love it. My favourite nn for [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] is Harryo, but also like [name_f]Harrie[/name_f] and [name_f]Retta[/name_f]. I love [name_f]Polly[/name_f] just on its own, but [name_f]Pollyanna[/name_f] is too much for me.

[name_f]Pollyanna[/name_f] is a little too frilly for me, and besides I love [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] “[name_f]Hattie[/name_f].” So that is my choice.

[name_f]Polly[/name_f] is my pick! I don’t know why it isn’t more popular. Other olly names have been.
I don’t see the appeal of [name_f]Hattie[/name_f], but I do think [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] is lovely.

Definitely [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] nn [name_f]Hattie[/name_f]! [name_f]Pollyanna[/name_f] would be a fun middle name for [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] though!

[name_f]Harriet[/name_f] for me.

I pretty [name_f]Harriet[/name_f]/[name_f]Hattie[/name_f]! :slight_smile:

I definitely prefer [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Hattie[/name_f]’. [name_f]Hattie[/name_f] is such a sweet and wonderful nickname.

[name_f]Harriet[/name_f]/[name_f]Hattie[/name_f] is my favourite - though I prefer the spelling [name_f]Harriette[/name_f]. :slight_smile: xx

I love the sound of [name_f]Pollyanna[/name_f] but something about seeing it spelled out gives me pause, but really that’s picky on my part. Both are great names and I’m generally a big fan of [name_f]Harriet[/name_f]/[name_f]Hattie[/name_f], but I I think I’m leaning toward [name_f]Pollyanna[/name_f] here. It’s sweet but not too cutesy, and it’s somewhat unexpected.
