Molly's name story for Dog Names Ending in Y
Golden Retriever
Ottawa, WV

I’ve always loved the name Molly and we didn’t want a person’s name. Since a lot of dogs are named Molly and we don’t know anyone with that name we thought it would be the best name. Also molle in French means soft (since were French we use that as her nickname) and since she’s a gentle giant (she was the biggest female of two litters and the second largest out of the 14 pups) we thought it would fit her quite well
