Longer names for Molly

What are some longer names that could be shortened to the nn [name]Molly[/name]?

I know that traditionally [name]Molly[/name] and [name]Polly[/name] are both nicknames for [name]Mary[/name]. Its not longer, but it is a little less cutesey…unfortunatly its also a little less interesting.

I like [name]Amalia[/name] shortened to [name]Mali[/name]… it’s not exactly [name]Molly[/name], but it’s a sound-alike.

[name]Margaret[/name] or [name]Mallory[/name]? [name]Moriah[/name] or Morela?

Tough one!

I totally think [name]Mallory[/name] works! Good call kerrie!

Tick for [name]Mallory[/name]!

Also, as [name]Molly[/name] is a nn for [name]Mary[/name], what about a longer [name]Mary[/name] name?
[name]Mary[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Mary[/name] [name]Beth[/name]
[name]Mary[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
or any [name]Mary[/name] variant:
[name]Moira[/name] (gets the ‘o’ in the name)


I like [name]Marigold[/name].

I know an [name]Amalia[/name] nn [name]Molly[/name] and think this is very cute.

Traditionally, [name]Molly[/name] is a nickname for [name]Mary[/name], so I think any [name]Mary[/name] alternative is fair game.

I know an [name]Amelia[/name] nn [name]Mollie[/name]. It’s not exactly intuitive but it works - I think part of its appeal is that it’s such a quirky fullname/nickname combo. You expect [name]Millie[/name] or [name]Mimi[/name], but she makes it different by being a [name]Mollie[/name]. She wears the sweetly old-fashioned [name]Mollie[/name] a lot of the time, but then someone will say “Oh, [name]Mollie[/name]'s full name is [name]Amelia[/name]” or it will be printed on something formal, so she has the pretty and more formal [name]Amelia[/name] too.

It’s just as gorgeous spelt [name]Molly[/name], too ([name]Mollie[/name] is how she spells it though).

I think [name]Imogen[/name] nn [name]Molly[/name] would also be pretty - certainly more feminine than “[name]Mo[/name]”.

[name]Mahalia[/name]-- which I have a huge affection for. I say it Ma-hahl-ya (similar in sound to [name]Dahlia[/name]), although I think another accepted pn. is Ma-hay-lia.
