Personal experiences with the name Hollis: | Edit

I find with the name Hollis, I've found a lot of people who either mispronounce or mistake my name for something else.....Like Wallace or Alex. Latin people also find my name extremely difficult to pronounce. I still love my name. Mainly because I'm named after my father. I'm honored and very proud to carry my father's name. And thankful I can carry his name on.
