I immediately think of Angelina Jolie, but if it's a middle name, I don't think that would be a probelm. I doubt that anyone will pronounce it jolly, because both the French word and Angelina's last name are pronounced Jo-lee.
I always think "Jo-lee" when I see it. But if thinking about the word "jolly" every time you see it is going to bother you, it might not be the best choice. I know there are names I like that remind me of other things, and some of them are so annoying, they just can't be on my list. I don't think other people will think of "jolly" but if you do yourself, that's something to think about.
For first names, I think anything ending in -a or -ah would sound great with it. Just some examples ...
I just took those from the SSA list, obviously, but you get what I mean. HTH!
Thanks for the comments. I actually wasn't aware of the French meaning. I like the name b/c it is a combo of two very important ladies in my life- Natalie and Bobi Jo. I'm kind of big on middle names having meaning so I was considering using it.
