- Comments and insights on the name Ally: | Edit
My Mom's name is Sally and if I have a girl I am planning on Ally. Pronounced Allie, but spelled in honor of my mother.
I think this name is better spelled "Allie" because "Ally" makes me want to pronounce it AL-eye, like an alliance.
Ally is a wonderful name. I prefer the spelling as ALLY its short and cute. Also is an easy name to learn to write as a young child.
^Really? You realize this is an actual word in English, right? It's pronounced "AL-lie".
While having no preference one way or the other, i'm fairly certain most people have the mental capacity to realize that there isn't a person named al-lie.
