Holly

Associated with the name of a tree, ultimately derived from the Old English word, "holen" first used in the early 20th century and is often given to daughters born on or near Christmas. Influenced early on by "Holly Golightly," the heroine in the 1961 film, "Breakfast at Tiffany's," played by famed actress Audrey Hepburn. Holly Hobbie, an American writer and illustrator born in 1944, became famous for her children's books, but even more so for her 1974 "Holly Hobbie" licensed character and rag dolls that carried the name to its peak position in 1979, redesigned by Mattel as "Holly Hobbie and Friends" in 2006. The name was also given to well-known actress Holly Hunter, who popularized the name from the 1980s through the 2000s. Plant With Red Berries
