Rebecca Romijn Names Daughter After Dolly

Back in September, we suggested that Elaine Cassidy's daughter, Kila, was named after an Irish band of the same name.  Well it looks like another baby name had musical inspiration first!  Rebecca Romijn announced on The Ellen Degeneres Show that one of her twins, Dolly Rebecca Rose, was named after Dolly Parton!  Rebecca grew up listening to Dolly Parton, and upon meeting Dolly (while 6 months pregnant) she decided upon the name.  

What do we know about the name Dolly?  Dolly Parton said herself that the name is not "short" for any other name.  However, according to babynamewizard.com, the name Dolly is commonly used as a pet form for both Dorothy and Delores.  Some more facts: The name Dolly peaked in the 1900s, and it has not made the top 1000 names list since 1971 (at a ranking of 960).  

Even though the name Dolly isn't uber popular right now, Ms. Parton should not despair!  Now Dolly has not only a theme park named after her (Dollywood, located in Tennessee) but a famous little girl as well!
